The Santa Virtual Ultra Challenge

1st-24th December 2018, Your choice

24 days

The XNRG Santa Virtual Ultra Challenge (SVUC): join us to run, walk or jog your own ultra wherever you like this December

1 - 24 December 2018

Stay moving this December – and earn your own festive ultra

It’s simple. You don’t need to travel to a race; just join our virtual community and run or walk where you live and where you love. It’s not all about distance: we’ll have nearly 20 prizes up for grabs in various categories, as well as earning your own special SVUC buff when you cover 50km in total over the challenge period, PLUS an ultra medal if you cover 50km in a single day.

It’s time to dust off your antlers and Santa suits! While you might not be running surrounded by other competitors, last year’s race had bags of seasonal atmosphere. We’ll have prizes for best photos, fancy dress, and more. Just hop over to Facebook to join in the fun…
