The Rebellion and Exodus Ultra Marathons have been assessed by the ITRA (International Trail Running Association) and UTMB® (Ultra Trail Du Mont-Blanc) and have both been allocated the 6 points for 2018. 6 points is the maximum number of points any race can be allocated so highlights how challenging both events are.
In addition the Thwarted Rebellion, which is a new event for 2018, has been allocated 5 points. The Thwarted Rebellion starts at the same time as the main Rebellion Ultra Marathon but goes as far as Machynlleth which is around 75miles (120km).
"Its great to continue are involvement with the ITRA and UTMB® from 2017. We look forward to seeing the athletes again this year. I hope they're ready for some amazing challenges" commented Dave Bateson Up Hill Down Dale Race Director.
