Sikhs In The City Summer Samosa Ultra

Sunday, 26 June 2022

Thanks to the overwhelming success of our Dawn To Dusk races over the last 9 years, we are pleased to announce that the date for our new Summer equivalent of our popular Dawn To Dusk (D2D) Sunlight Ultra friendly race has been set as Sunday 26 June 2022. We are naming it the Sikhs In The City (SITC) Summer Samosa Ultra.

Six years ago, we promised not to raise the entry fee for three years, this will be the last time at the old price the fees remain unchanged. Advance notice that our 10th anniversary of Dawn To Dusk on 11 December will be at £39.

This race will be under the relevant COVID restrictions applicable at the time including your honesty in declaring that you are not affected at the time of applying - if you do have to pull out for any reason, in accordance with our �No Refund Policy� we will offer you a deferred place at our next D2D or similar event such as the Fauja Singh Birthday Challenge or Ultra Summer Samosa Ultra.

We hope to welcome back as many of our loyal regulars as possible, while also encouraging first timers to give us a try. To clear all previous deferrals the number of entries are limited to 280 for the Summer Samosa Ultra race and 95 for the 10km. Entries close on Monday 16 May 2022. (375 in total for both races).

Those of you who have taken part in the (D2D) event will already know but for the first timers here is a summary:

  • The route is an undulating but wheelchair friendly and mostly on good tarmac surface
  • Races start at 10:00 am
  • When you complete 11 laps of a certified 2.014 Km course you will receive a 22km medal
  • Complete 21 laps to receive a Marathon medal
  • Complete at least 25 laps and you will have earned an Ultra medal
  • You can run until 6:00pm
  • Chip timed so you can see how you did each lap later as well as on the big electronic board as you pass the Start/Finish
  • Rewards include a unique/bespoke race medal, event T-shirt, goody bag

There is also an opportunity for those starting out to run a 10 Km race starting at 1:00pm.

There is a bag drop, loos and a feeding station at the Start/Finish of each lap serving usual drinks, chocs, fruit, tea/coffee and samosa/onion bhaji! A separate table for personal drinks too.

  • The event has all the usual support of paramedics, marshals and is fully insured.
  • The course is certified for distance and the Marathon/Ultra will count towards your 100 Marathon Club total.
  • There is also free parking along the route but we ask if you can park at least 100m away from the start/finish which is close to GPS reference IG4 5PS.
