THE RACE 

Welcome to the Valley Ultra 2022. If you've made it this far we haven't scared you off yet! These courses are hard...they're meant to be. All of the information provided below has to come with a disclaimer, between now and the 26th of November 2022 we have a full ski season. This means the landscape can change and it also means that once the snow melts we may have to make some small changes.

 

We only change a course where it is in the interest of safety to do so. We will provide you with updated maps if required closer to the races. Don't worry we have a fantastic Course B and C which can come into effect if the weather doesn't play ball.
