Reserve the date May 4th, 2019
Why not begin the adventure – and sign up for Horsens100.
A 100miles ultra race. Although 100 miles may seem like a long distance and admitted it requires preparation, dedication and willpower to complete that distance. Then I challenge you to attend.
We are a group of ultra runners who have completed a lot of ultra races which with passion has guided us to create this race, which focused on high quality.
A unique race with lasting experiences and high security for all the participants.
A 100 miles 160.9 km. race on a beautifully varied route in and around Horsens. The route goes by beautiful Nørretrand, with Denmark’s most versatile birdlife, around Denmark’s only mountain chain “Owner Mountains” with Yding Skovhøj, Møllehøj and of course a tour of Ejerbavnehøj’s tower. Not to mention the beautiful areas of Torp, Stensballe, Bjerre and Klokkedal.
A delight to the eye and a challenge to the legs. The route will be an 80 km round, which must thus be passed twice for the 100miles participants. With start and pivot point in the clubhouse in Åbjergskoven / Bygholm lake.
If you are adventurous but think that 50miles are more appropriate, that’s also an option.
