The ecoGozo ultra

Walking in GozoAfter its successful debut in 2012 the Hellfire Ultra Trail will take place on Saturday the 6th of April on the Island of Gozo, departing Nadur at 8:00 for the ultrarunners and team pairs (run and bike), and 11.00am for the solo mountain bikers and 21k trail.

The Ultra route is over 50km with checkpoints throughout the route. The course is a gorgeous circumnavigation of the island which covers cliff edge single tracks, lush valleys and water courses, seaside salt pans, sandy beaches and rocky terrain - in short, you will experience the whole of the Mediterranean in one race.

The course has a total elevation of circa D1,400m with two steep parts. The rest is undulating gradient that will allow you to enjoy the sights and views while covering distance relatively fast. The bikers will need to carry their bikes over some parts that are too awkward to cycle.

The route is well manned and safe. It is ideal for those starting out or who want to have a fun and fast race. Gozo is a great place to spend a weekend so we are sure you will enjoy your stay. We have special packages of ¬130 for 3 days ex flights including race entry, recovery party and race pack.
