The Nomad Ultra

The NoMad Ultra Event has options of a 50 mile, 50km or Team Relay Challenge all taking part on the 25th June 2016.

The NoMad50 mile Ultra follows a multi terrain circular run mainly following Derby Nomad trail around Derbyshire. Starting and finishing in Breaston, M1 Jct 25. Scenic rolling countryside with 605m climb with canal, trail, fields and some road.

All competitors will be required to have a basic level of navigation skill, to help the route is partially marked and for the majority following the Derby NoMad trail which is waymarked in places. Route written instructions, maps and downloadable gpx file of the route available on the webpage. Along the course there will be great support and refreshments / food at 5 checkpoints with a drop bag facility for 50 mile entrants.

NoMad50 mile participants have staggered starts on the hour 6am to 8am depending on estimated finish times. The time limit for the 50mile ultra is 13 hours, as a guide most runners opt for 6am unless estimated finish time for less than 10 hours, 7am for 8-10hrs and 8am for 7-9hrs.

Team Relay Challenge - Are you ready for the challenge? 6 person team on the same scenic course as the NoMad50 mile Ultra, starting at 9am. Longest leg 10 miles shortest 5.25 miles. A day of teamwork and fun to battle it out to see who is the winning team!

New for 2015 - NoMad50k Ultra. The 32 mile event is just a few short miles up from a marathon, perfect for those new to Ultras. A great scenic multi terrain circular run following the established NoMad50 mile route for the first and last sections with a scenic middle route heading through the historic city of Derby along the old Derby canal and River Derwent. This starts at 9am and finishes in Breaston with refreshments / food and great support at 3 checkpoints. With the 50 mile route on the same day, a time limit of 10 hours should be plenty.

Entry limit across the 3 events is 120. Event Centre facilities include toilets, changing, parking, food / refreshments & a very welcoming NoMad Team! We may even have a massage tent for you for those tired legs!
