Designed to provide opportunities for under-represented cyclists to participate in a self-supported ultra race, the Ultra Distance Scholarship is back for 2023. This time around, it’s presented in partnership with the Pan Celtic Race. Learn how to apply here…

With the mission of increasing representation within the world of ultra-cycling events, the Ultra Distance Scholarship (UDS) selects three recipients per year to receive 8-10 months of intensive support to train for and compete in an established, self-supported ultra-race. They’ve already supported six cyclists to date, and applications just opened up for the 2023 scholarship in partnership with the Pan Celtic Race, an ultra-endurance event through the Celtic Nations of Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Brittany.

This year, the successful applicants will receive support in the form of a custom bike from Stayer Cycles, bikepacking bags from Tailfin, cycling apparel from Albion, coaching from Veloqi Cycle Coaching, bike fitting from Foundation Fit, nutrition from Outdoor Provisions, one-on-one mentorship, a bike computer, and more. The scholarship is a registered non-profit based in the UK and is currently only open to UK residents for now. However, it is hoping to expand its reach in the near future.
