Will there be cut-off times at the White Rose Ultra?
Yes - but they have not been updated for this year. Last year's cut-off times were as follows: 30 miles = 8 hours, that's 15 miles/4 hours 60 miles = 16 hours, that's 30 miles/8 hours 100 miles 32 hours, that's 50 miles 16 hours or if you do not reach the 60 mile point within 20 hours you will be DQ'd you are not going to magically run the final 40 miles in 10 hours are you?
ChevronLeft
Do I need to have run an ultra before signing up to the White Rose Ultra?
You must have at least one finish recorded at a UK ultra on a distance of 70k or more on a comparable course, sorry no 'flat' ultras, the finish must be recorded between the dates of 1st November 2017 and October 2018 (yes the 2017 WRU 60 counts)

Did the race in 2019
The course was great and well marked along the route. The scenery was beautiful along the way and the course was challenging with a lot of uphill and downhill.My main negatives were what you got for your money. We paid £55 for the ultra but were only provided food at one station along the route and water at 2 more. For the money paid I thought this was poor and it would significantly improve morale when running if there was more food available.Overall I enjoyed the weekend and would recommend the course to anybody who is looking for a challenging run!

Did the race in 2019
I really enjoyed it, it was my first ultra and I cannot wait to get the next one booked. The organisation was fab, volunteers were all so lovely and the participants were amazing. My only negative was the medal, I would of loved a proper medal to hang with all my collection. T-shirt was lovely.
