About Us

"An ultra marathon isn't just race, its a journey that breaks down the person you think you are and uncovers the person you truly are" 

Here at Embrace Ultra we love nothing more than running far, the beautiful Kent countryside and striving to be the best version of ourselves. Now we want to give you the chance to do the same! 

Our events are for everyone. Whether its your first ultra or you're pushing for the podium, we will give you exactly the same race experience. Our generous time limits, amazing aid stations and well marked, easy to navigate courses will make this a day (and sometimes night) you'll never forget.

So come join us and Embrace Ultra

Our Mission

We want to create unforgettable ultra marathon events that bring together runners of all abilities and backgrounds to embrace the challenge of pushing their limits on the stunning Kent trails. 

We are committed to promoting inclusivity, diversity and sustainability in everything we do, striving to make our events accessible to all runners and leave a positive impact on the environment and local community.

Our Promise

At Embrace Ultra we're committed to protecting the great outdoors and ensuring our races are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. We continuously strive to achieve this through the practices we adopt in our races and the environmental charities we support.

Sustainable Racing

We aim to put on sustainable and environmentally friendly races without compromising our race experience. We will achieve this by;

  • Leave no trace racing. Our post race clear up and zero tolerance for littering will leave our routes as we found them. 

  • All our races will be cup less and a reusable cup will always be on our mandatory kit.

  • Our events will not include race t-shirts and we will instead plant a tree with every entry.

  • We will work with partners to recycle and reuse waste from our events.

  • We will donate any non re-useable food to local homeless charities / food banks.
