CAN ANYONE PRE-REGISTER? I HEARD I NEED AN INVITE.
Anyone anywhere is able to sign up for the sprint. There are qualifications that need to be met prior to racing the Ultra. Read more about the qualifications here
I ALREADY REGISTERED FOR THE ULTRA. CAN I DO THE AGOGE?
Yes. If you have already registered and paid for the Ultra, you can add on the Agoge for no extra cost. Please contact email@example.com and let our friendly support team know. If you haven’t registered for the Ultra yet and wish to do the Agoge, click here.
HOW MUCH MILEAGE DO I NEED TO DO TO FINISH?
In order to get an Ultra Finisher’s Belt Buckle and officially finish the race, you must complete at least 30 miles.
HOW MANY MILES AND HOW MANY OBSTACLES WILL THERE BE PER LOOP?
Approximately 5-8 miles per loop. Expect 15+ Spartan obstacles, as well as many natural obstacles such as single track, scree slopes, and some shallow thermal river crossings.
WILL THERE BE BURPEE PENALTIES FOR FAILING AN OBSTACLE?
Yes. The quantity is TBD. There will also be penalty loops
CAN I BRING A SUPPORT CREW?
Yes. Details to come.
WILL IT BE COLD?
Iceland in winter isn’t as cold as it sounds. Temperatures compared to the American northeast, for example, are relatively mild. You can expect December averages from -1°C to +4°C (30 to 39°F). Be prepared though for high winds, rain, snow, sun, fog, darkness, thermal river crossings, stray Vikings and lots more. A mandatory gear list will be provided at a later date.
WHAT KIND OF SHOES SHOULD I WEAR?
We recommend bringing several pairs, including one pair with an aggressive tread pattern suitable for slippery and muddy conditions. Use of spikes, cleats or shoe chains is not permitted.
HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER?
Please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know you’re interested in volunteering for Iceland. One of our friendly team members will be in touch. Iceland promises to be an experience that is just as special for volunteers. Thanks for your support!
WHAT IF MULTIPLE PEOPLE FINISH 100 MILES?
In the event multiple people break 100 miles, the prize money for that accomplishment goes to the first person to finish 100-miles. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mens and Womens Elite will be awarded in a podium ceremony following the race.
