About the race.

What is the UK UltraSkate?

Following the success of the UK UltraSkate 2023 (1st Edition), the UK Ultraskate is back for a second edition on the 13-14th July 2024.

 

The UK UltraSkate 2023 - 1st Edition was the first ultra of its kind in the UK, with sanctioning & endorsement from both SkateGB & The IDSA (International Distance Skateboarding Association), and in turn marked a historical moment within this discipline of skateboarding in the UK.

The UK Ultraskate is a Long Distance Longboarding & Skateboarding (LDP), and Roller skating event that offers a limited 100 spaces to riders and teams from around the world the opportunity to ride for 24 hours and push themselves to their physical limits.

An UltraSkate entails participants riding their boards as far as they can in 24 hours. Therefore there is no limit on what can be achieved. (Check out the 'Videos' to get a taste of what an Ultraskate is all about)

Entry is open to all, whether a first-timer or an 'ultraskate veteran'. During the 24 hours, participants can ride as long or little as they want (but of course the goal that we are all striving to achieve is to excel our own personal goals and achieve our 'maximum potential'). And of course, nothing motorised is permitted.

 

Solo riders, teams and their support will have access to a camping area next to the track to pitch a tent, or bring a campervan, to recover during the riding period. (Solo riders are advised to bring someone to support them throughout the 24 hour period).

(Key examples of existing IDSA sanctioned UltraSkates include: The Miami Homestead and The Dutch Ultra).

Taster Session

Join us on the 18th May 2024 for a 'pre-event' board session. As a little special something extra to get everybody in the mood we are planning on an informal get together at the track ahead of this year's event! It's a chance to ride the track and maybe get some tips on SUP skating technique. It would be great to get some more SUP'ers riding this year!

Get a stall

This year for the 2nd edition of the UK Ultraskate we are offering a limited number of spaces for business and individuals to have stalls throughout the event to promote their products.

So if you are a business looking to promote your products, why not get a stall? Get in touch!

Blog

Join us in the lead up to this years ultraskate with the UK Ultraskates Food For Thought Thursdays, where each week will explore a variety of topic relating to LDP, and Longboarding/Skateboarding.  

Campers

Update: (25th April 2024) - Great news! Following discussions with the site, we have gotten approval to permit campervans into the amphitheatre this year. This has however been agreed with the understanding that campervans will only be permitted to enter the main event site if the weather is permitting - Rain would inevitably result in damage to the grassed amphitheatre and debris being deposited onto the track.

In turn, if you intend on bringing a campervan, please note that if the weather is deemed as being too wet, campervans will be required to be parked within the main parking.

Stay and spectate

To let everyone get in on the fun, we have this year opened up the option for spectators to stay throughout the event. So if you just want to come along spectate for the weekend, take in the vibes, demo some gear, meet some great people from all over the world, and more, then register now for your weekend spectator space! 

Everyone is welcome to spectate for the day for free, during the sites operational hours. (Parking is available within Betteshanger Country Park, however, note site parking will be enforced. So remember to pay for your parking!)

 rubbish 

dispose of it properly.

As a rule of thumb, we ask that you take home your own rubbish. Last year, despite this rule applying, and desperate attempts by our team to separate rubbish generated by participants both throughout and after the event, we were still faced with an enormous amount of rubbish, which led us to paying a fine for the rubbish to be sorted and disposed of appropriately. So please dispose of your rubbish properly! Take it home with you if possible, or use the correct bins provided (recycling, bio, other).

Moreover, we are proud to announce, in support of making our Oceans & Planet cleaner, we have have teamed up with Surfers Against Sewage to help us with the event. With this, in hope of helping raise some money, SUPSkate (Hamboards) have kindly donated some of their new gear to be won at this years Taster Session (18th May 2024). To be in for a chance, simply come along for the day, and enter. We will be asking for a donation to enter, and all proceeds will be given to Surfers Against Sewage.
