Humanity Direct Ultra

Be a part of this unique chance to get a place on an amazing one day ultra simply by donating or fundraising for a Humanity Direct patient instead of paying an entry free!

After a successful Humanity Direct Ultra in 2018, XNRG are partnering with the charity funding vital operations for little children again on 10th March 2018. 2016’s Humanity Direct Ultra raised £8000 and helped fund life saving & life changing operation’s for 34 children.

We recommend a donation of £58 when you sign up, or you can pledge to raise as much as you can instead of paying to enter an ultra marathon - saving & changing the lives of children in developing countries who desperately need surgery.

How does it Work? 
It's simple. Instead of charging an entry fee for the one day ultra marathon, XNRG ask you to donate £58 pounds to fund a vital operation, or if you prefer, you can start a fundraising page instead - and raise the amount that you feel you can. 

100% of donations go to children’s operations in Africa with Humanity Direct

 “The support we’ve had from XNRG has been phenomenal. Thanks to you we’ve rolled out a vital eye-testing programme for children in rural Uganda with over 600 children receiving free glasses so far. Your donations and dedication have also helped us continue to provide lifesaving and life changing surgery for children whose families are live on less then a $1 a day and who would never be able to afford the medical care they need.  XNRG ultras truly do change lives!”

- Nick Swift, Humanity Direct’s Founder
