Commencing on 11th March 2016, I will be taking part in the 6633 Ultra!
The race itself is a non-stop, self-sufficient foot race covering a distance of up to 350 miles of gruelling terrain. The race will cross the line of the Arctic Circle and will continue on to the banks of the Arctic Ocean at Tuktoyaktuk.
The eight day race will see us competitors carrying our own provisions including food,
cooking items, clothing, sleeping kit and other safety gear. Checkpoints will be spaced along the route, where we will be able to rest and refuel. Hot water and shelter are the only things guaranteed at these touch points.
Three of the races organisers have raced in Arctic conditions on a number of occasions and it is this experience that they will be bringing to the 6633 Arctic Ultra to make it the most testing, rewarding and memorable race that any
self-respecting ultra-racer will ever do.
