What is

The Falklands Ultra?

Welcome to an opportunity for a life-changing, horizon - broadening challenge that will push your body further than you thought possible!

This isn’t just a challenging endurance race in a forgotten corner of the globe. The Falklands Ultra is an extraordinary experience of a lifetime - a week-long adventure in a country that few have visited. Nowhere else in the world has such a unique mix of epic terrain, friendly wildlife and iconic battlefield history.

April 2023 will see the inaugural running of the Falklands Ultra - a single-stage international ultramarathon over the stunning open terrain of East Falkland in the South Atlantic. From Goose Green to Stanley via Ajax Bay, San Carlos, and past the hills of Mount Kent, Mount Longdon, Mount Harriet, Two Sisters, Tumbledown and Wireless Ridge.

With generous cut-off times competitors of a wide range of ability will be able to challenge themselves and find out what they are really capable of.
