Separately evaluated team categories:

Company team category for 6-12- member teams (Teams must be formed from employees working at the same company and their relatives). Company teams are also evaluated in the overall 6-12-member team relays).

Cycling Tour: As its name suggests, the cycling tour is not a race. Bikers do not compete against time, the tour is an opportunity to experience the atmosphere of Ultrabalaton.

Cut off time: Individual runners and teams have 32 hours from the start time to complete the race.

Start times: Please provide your estimated finish time when you register your team for the race as start times are calculated based on this data. Submitted finish times can be modified until 1 April. Please use the section calculator to help you estimate your lap time. The slowest teams will be assigned to the first wave and the fastest ones to the last wave. Average speed teams will be assigned to waves in between the two in order to prevent congestion and collision. Unfortunately road infrastructure around the lake wasn’t planned with an UB type race in mind. We will need your cooperation in submitting correct lap-times, so that we can plan ahead. A free UB 2017 team registration will be raffled off among those teams who provide us with the most precise finish time.

Sections and relay points: At this year’s Ultrabalaton, the lap will be made up of 37 sections. The shortest section will be only 3 km long, while the longest will be over 10 km. We felt it important to include a comparatively short distance into the route so that first timers or inexperienced runners could also get the hang of the Ultrabalaton race. There will be mobile toilets set up at each relay point.
