XNRG October Update: The Perfect Time to Ultra

Humanity Direct Tring Ultra results | Find your Autumn challenge | How to take recovery in your stride | Achieve your ultra dreams through coaching

Welcome to Autumn. The leaves are falling off the trees, the ground is getting softer, the roots more slippery - perfect trail running conditions for off-road long distance running. Book your Autumn adventure >

 


HUMANITY DIRECT TRING ULTRA - CONGRATULATIONS

Another great turnout for our second Tring Ultra, which raised money for life-saving and life-changing children's operations in Africa through the charity Humanity Direct. A huge thank you to everyone who took part: your entry fee and fundraising efforts will change over 50 young lives. A lovely sunny September day, there were some great performances throughout the field. Check your results >

DRUID'S CHALLENGE

10 - 12th November
84 miles over 3 days along the historic Ridgeway

Now in its ninth year, the Druid's is hugely popular with Marathon des Sables competitors and anyone looking to run along the oldest roadway in the UK alike.

Add this option by logging in to your entry and adding it to your itinerary, or email info@xnrg.co.uk. We can also drop you to nearby hotels listed on the event page at the end of each day if you'd prefer a hotel stay (Note: hotel bookings must be made separately - not through us).
