A quick look at the 6 Day Races 2021 shows Across the Years 20/21 having been canceled and is offering a virtual 10 day race which started yesterday, December 28th. The first scheduled event of the year will be the 6 Days UMF Winter Edition in Policoro, Italy. Gary Cross has posted the dates of the low key Douglas 6 day so anyone interested in this event in Arizona should get in touch with Gary on his Facebbok page.
There’s no official word yet on the Sri Chinmoy 6 & 10 day races in April but with travel bans still in place, many would-be runners wont be able to get to the event so unless things change significantly in the US, the event may not happen again this year.
The Athens International Ultramarathon Festival is moving back to origin in Loutraki, some 80 km west of Athens and this year it looks like being a more modest program than the 2020 extravaganza.
A new event, the Les 6 Jours du Grand Est (6 Days of the Grand East) takes place in Pont-à-Mousson, north-eastern France coinciding with the Kauhajoki Ultra Running Festival in Finland, two weeks before the 6 Days in the Dome returns to Milwaukee which will no doubt be a star-studded event.
Sweden sees a new 6 day, the Viadal Ultra taking place in Förslöv, about 100km north of Malmo.
Adelaide returns with 72 and 48 hour options and then hopefully, there will be a return of Across The Years in December.
