UTCT Special Edition 2021

Sat May 22, 06:00 - Sat May 22, 22:00
Gardens Rugby Club

Last year under extremely unique and uncertain times UTCT had to be shelved in its original format and The Special Edition was created and given wings. UTCT presents The Special Edition as a stand alone event and race day is on Saturday 22 May 2021.  

The Special Edition offers runners either a 50km solo or 25km solo and will follow the same unique figure of eight format as in 2020. Runners can choose to run their lap sequence in the 50km, or in the case of the 25km runners can choose which lap they want to do. The two loops are equally challenging as both offer runners a mix of technical terrain, single and jeep tracks with steep ascents and descents. Route options may be determined via a lottery system due to regulations.



With the pandemic forming part of our daily lives the Summit Events team has been able to prepare for and mitigate risk for participants in the event of a disruption.
