Monday 23rd February – Cautious
Positive news from Boris today.
Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all participants for being so understanding and supportive through this challenging period.
We are hopeful that we will be able to host our amazing events in July with training starting in late May, this is of course totally dependent on the government guidance.
Training will be ‘COVID-19 secure’ with several precautions in place.
We would also like to thank the Ultra team across the UK who have all been working hard behind the scenes to plan for every possible eventuality in this constantly changing situation. Also, thanks to the amazing gyms and coaches that deliver training, we cannot wait to get you all training, getting fit and supporting these local businesses.
All participants that were due to take part in March/April 2020 will in the next few weeks as advice develops be given a choice of several dates in 2021 or 2022 to pick from. These participants will have first choice on all dates.
All new sign ups since roughly February 2020 will then be contacted and given the same date options, dependant on availability to fill up the events.
All these date options will be posted in FB groups so please ensure you check them.
This has been a long haul for everyone, and we are over the moon to finally be back planning to get people fit and active after lockdown, putting on awesome events and heading towards our target of £25Million for Cancer Research UK.

We cannot wait to bring back Ultra Events to give people the opportunity to do something amazing and provide an amazing event night for guests to enjoy.
Our mission with Ultra is:
- Bettering physical and mental health
- Life-changing experiences
- Behaving morally and ethically
- Fundraising to help beat cancer
As the UK enters another lockdown, we will continue to put our events on hold. We are following government guidance closely and we hope that the roll out of the vaccination will bring hope that after Easter events can start to return.
We are positive that events will be able to resume in 2021 and we can get on our way to hitting £25million for Cancer Research UK.
Thank you for your patience, we hope to see you soon!

It is fantastic news that the UK have approved the Pfizer vaccine and that it will be available from next week. This is a huge step forwards for the events industry and an encouraging sign that events will return in 2021.
We cannot wait to bring back Ultra Events and get on our way to hit our target of £25million raised for Cancer Research UK.
We have dates booked for 2021 and 2022 and will be giving participants who were due to take part in postponed events the choice of dates they would like to take part in.
Thank you for your patience during this time, we cannot wait to see you soon at an Ultra Event!
Thursday 20th August 2020
It is great to see that the UK is slowly returning to normal and that bars, restaurants, gyms and other industries can now reopen. We are excited that the government have announced some pilot events can go ahead during August with the view for events to return in the Autumn, this is a huge step forward for the events industry.
We cannot wait to be able to bring Ultra Events back, getting people fit with UWCB and Ultra MMA, teaching people a new skill with Ultra Ballroom, making people laugh with Ultra Comedy and ensuring that we provide a fantastic night for all guests and participants. Most importantly, we cannot wait to be back raising money for Cancer Research UK and getting back on track for our next target of £25million raised.
We are still waiting to be given the green light from the government on when our events can return and once this happens we will be announcing the rescheduled dates. All tickets will be transferred to the new dates and we will provide all guests the choice of 3 dates to choose from in order to make sure that they can attend the event and we will provide at least 12 week’s notice.
Thank you for your patience during this difficult time and we hope to see you at an Ultra Event soon!
Tuesday 17th March 2020
Following the governments advice on limiting social contact. We have unfortunately made the decision to postpone our training and events set for the coming weeks.
As always, our primary concern is the safety of our participants and spectators. We are absolutely devastated by this, but we are doing what we feel is right to ensure everyone’s safety and health.
We have been organising events for the last 11 years and have never found ourselves in these circumstances. These are unprecedented times and we feel this is the right option.
All events that have been postponed will be running at a date in the future. We cannot confirm dates at the moment but will let you know as soon as the government advice and guidance allow us to make these decisions. As we stress the safety of others is paramount.
The minute we do set a new date, we expect we will give 12 weeks’ notice which should hopefully be enough for everyone to attend and show support. Our participants have trained so very hard and raised a phenomenal amount of money for Cancer Research UK.
We cannot wait to reschedule these events. Participants will receive a fresh 8 weeks of training and have the amazing event that they deserve. An amazing night for friends, family and work colleagues to proudly come and cheer on their incredible loved ones.
All tickets and VIP tables will still be valid for the rearranged event, these are non refundable. Funds raised for Cancer Research UK on JustGiving pages will also moved over to the new date. This will give everyone the opportunity to raise EVEN MORE money for Cancer Research UK.
We will be in touch with everyone as soon possible with details of the new dates.
These are extreme, unprecedented circumstances. Thank you for your patience and support during this time. Ultra Events participants have raised over 21millions pounds for Cancer Research UK. We cannot wait to get going again to raise even more for life saving research and get even more people fit and active. The start of our events will signal the end of a very challenging period. Take care of yourselves and others around you.
