The Falklands Ultramarathon?
The Falkland Islands lie in the South Atlantic about 7,800 miles from the UK. All of the action takes place on the northern part of East Falkland - the largest of the islands. Stanley is the capital and this is where you will be accommodated throughout the event.
The Falklands Ultra is a non-stop race over the stunning open terrain of East Falkland.
There are several options:
- The Falklands Ultra 100 mile: The ultimate individual challenge - a 100 mile race retracing some of the footsteps taken during the 1982 conflict, passing through iconic places such as Goose Green and San Carlos.
- The Falklands Ultra 100 km: The 100km/60 mile race joins the Falkland Ultra 100 mile route around the halfway point, with all races sharing the same finish in the centre of Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands.
- The Team Falklands Ultra 100 mile: Teams of four can also go head to head, each completing a marathon distance section of the full 100 mile course as a relay.
- The Falklands Ultra marathon: This marathon distance course starts with the 100-milers at Goose Green and climbs to the highest point on the Islands, Mount Usborne, before descending back down to the water's edge.
The inaugural Falklands Ultra will take place 3rd April - 13th April 2020 (the departure and return dates from the UK); you will be in the Falklands Islands 4 - 11 April.
Flights are arranged through our ATOL protected travel partner. Most international start locations are catered for. The final leg will be on a specially chartered aircraft or a scheduled flight from South America.

Don’t miss typical tastes of the Falklands - squid, upland goose pate, lamb, mutton and beef. Vegetarians are also taken care of with tasty options on menus around the town. During the race checkpoints will be stocked with food and water.
You will be accommodated in Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands, with a range of options available that include hotels, lodges and home stay. This will enable you to fully immerse yourself in the local community and experience life on this remote South Atlantic archipelago.
