Covid Secure Measures

Ultra Challenges were one of the UK’s first ‘Covid Secure’ mass participation challenges in 2020 and we will also be implementing standardised measures to keep all participants safe whilst on each challenge in 2022. You’ll see special social distancing requirements and hygiene measures in place across many elements of the events, ensuring each Ultra Challenge is as low risk as possible for everyone involved.
