Everything is possible
Although ultra-distance races are not for the faint-hearted, we aim to create an event that's accessible to everyone from experienced athletes to first-time ultra-cyclists. Utrecht Ultra is the perfect race for those who want to dip their toes into the ultra-experience or as a practice race for more experienced riders.
All riders welcome
Inequality is still a major problem in modern-day bike racing. We aim to organise an event championing inclusivity and diversity, where everyone is free to be themselves. We are committed to listening and learning and want to address the barriers preventing some people from participating in these kinds of events.
Experience above profit
Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the thrill of an ultra-distance race. That's why we do our best to keep the registration fee as low as possible while still providing an unforgettable experience for our riders.
The race will start on Saturday, August 3 in a mass start format at 18:00. Riders will have 100 hours to make it back in time for the finishers party on Wednesday, August 7 at 22:00. This means that riders have one evening and almost four full days to finish on time.
As this is a self-supported race, riders must rely on their own abilities and are only allowed to use commercial services to meet their needs. As usual with these types of races, no prizes will be awarded to the winners.
Utrecht Ultra has a 50/50 mix of free and fixed route, of which 99% will be on tarmac. From the starting point in Utrecht riders will follow various fixed parcours and will have to plan their own route inbetween three checkpoints, before heading back to Utrecht where the finish line lies.
Definitive routes will be made public at a later date.
