Static informationNon-stop ULTRA foot race
9th-13th April 2020
Kerteminde, Fyn, Denmark
The RouteWe follow in the trails of our +1000 years of history, starting in the ancient viking era passing dangerous times when privateer Marsk Stig prevailed the territory until present time where the stunning landscape still captivates artists and outdoor enthusiasts from the whole world. Each step you take is a unique exploration of some of the most challenging and stunning terrains in Denmark. Single loop courses featuring a plethora of single track trails, remote beaches and an adventure of a lifetime.
Endurance RunDanish Ultra events is considered an "Endurance Run" and as such it is not considered a competitive event but rather a life accomplishment. We will record finish times and award top finishers but the accomplishment of the participants in cycling or running it is in the experience of it, not how fast you can finish it. Therefore, the spirit of the event is captured in the journey, rather than in each participant's end result. For the most detailed information, please see our Runners manuals in the Download area of each event.
Course MarkingsWe pride ourselves in choosing our race courses extremely well. Part of the course is marked in surveyor ribbon and arrow signs, others consist mostly of unmarked trails along the beach of FYN. We also have yellow arrow signs and "wrong way" signs to mark more confusing and complicated intersections. This is why we HIGHLY recommend having a GPS and/or good maps of the course so you can confirm. Participants will need to know how to navigate and read a map for obvious and safety reasons. The course will partly be marked with wooden markers with reflectives and arrow signs and confidence markings some of the way. Although we mark the trails in some areas, runners will encounter sections with little to no markings due to natural causes, tampering, or differences in course marking styles. Please note that there are very exposed sections, dangerous cliffs, mud and rock fall, snakes, wildlife, and other hazards throughout the route. Participants should have ultra distance experience, experience fastpacking, and be incredibly well training, cold trained, and prepared up carry a heavy pack for days on end. Please consider all these factors before registering for this event.
