UTMB® World Series Index Race
Ultra Marathon Sylt 2023
111 km ultramarathon around Sylt.
Individual or 3-person relay of 37 km.
Around Germany’s most beautiful island!
For the first time with an ultra-run in one day, experience all facets of Sylt from sunrise to sunset.
The opponents? Only you, the wind, and the weather.
Incomparable moments await you: Through the nature reserve around Germany’s northernmost point at Ellenbogen, along the Wadden Sea, accompanied by the tides, through the harbors of List and Hörnum, Sylt life in Keitum, lonely moments at Morsumer Kliff and Rantum Becken and the bustling life in Westerland. All in one race.
And the best: Start and finish in Kampen, Mecca of nature lovers and jet set alike. Be ready for special, for those Sylt moments!
With 20 aid stations, where the municipalities and Sylt businesses present themselves, you are well supplied.
The flat course invites speed, but beware: even a stiff breeze sometimes feels like 1,000 meters of elevation gain. Motivated?
