Introducing the brand new Phoenix Hydra 75 Mile Ultra - a 75 mile 'multi-headed running beast' with a difference!
Whether you're a seasoned ULTRA runner or a complete first timer, here at Phoenix we aim to create an awesome running environment which is safe, inclusive, friendly and fun and allows you to achieve things you perhaps never thought possible. We will support you to succeed, which lead us to ask the question - why do most ULTRA distance events jump form 50 miles to 100 miles? Well, not anymore because we've created the 'Hydra' 75 mile ultra, for those who've already completed a 50 miler, but perhaps want a stepping-stone' towards a 100 miler. Firstly, you get up to 30 hours to finish the event - that's right from 8.00am on Saturday 22nd June right through to 2.00pm on Sunday 23rd June, so if you fancy having a go at your very first 75 miler, or perhaps your first time running at night, then you won't find a longer cut off time anywhere. The route is a single 1 mile loop, which we've made as flat as we possibly can and just to add to the fun we have a 12/24 hour event, a 50 miler, a 100 miler and a variety of marathons and half marathon events all going on at the same time with other runners coming and going to keep you company. It's a real festival of running!
The event is fully chip timed so you don't need to worry about keeping track of laps - well do all of that for you and can tell you exactly how far you've run each time you pass the awesomely well stocked aid station.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
Off road trail, through the wine estate on a flat 1 mile route. Flat, with slight cambers
