Tortola Torture ultramarathon 2021

2021 Event Planned To Go Ahead; Format Changes & Protocols Will Be Introduced

We are planning to go ahead with the 2021 FU Covid edition of the KPMG Tortola Torture, subject to any government restrictions and protocols that may be in place at the time, particularly on the limitations for group gatherings.


FU Covid Edition 2021

2020 event rolls over to 2021, to be held on April 17 as the FU Covid edition. We hope that FU Covid will be as successful as the FU Irma edition in 2018!


Event Postponed to later in year; date still to be set

2020 event postponed. We are looking for a suitable new date in the latter part of the year, but while the situation is changing so quickly, we don’t want to fix a new date which may have to change again.  These are extraordinary times.  We will send regular updates until there is more certainty.  All entries will automatically roll over into the new date.

Say What?


Dropping out of the race a couple years ago has been burning a small hole in me since it happened.  I put in the miles and felt like I was trained finally and was able to come back and compete.  I had no real goal, I just planned to go out and walk the ups and run everything else, winning turned out to be a bonus. I really love coming out and making a little vacation out of the race. Richard and everyone does such a great job organizing and making everyone appreciate the achievement of finishing this thing. Huge props to everyone, I look forward to coming back.

What a great day! From the breezes and sunrise in the early morning, to the friendly and helpful aid stations, to the fun finish line party. What a great event that I’ll definitely be back for! I mean, there were moments of pure torture, but the views made it all worth it!

Thanks for a great day! Really fun!

A screaming hot adventure through the winding roads of Tortola Island. The steep ascents and descents combined with the beautiful blue water views will leave you breathless. This is a bucket list race that will be one you will remember for the rest of your life!

If you consider yourself a runner of any distance from 5k to ultra this race needs to be on your radar for next year.  Vacation in Tortola, go on a once in a lifetime run around the island, then spend the rest of the day celebrating at the finish line. A destination race that can’t be topped.

After that easy 10, the race begins a series of relentless, incredibly steep, and constant series of climbs and descents, that systemically squash your soul. And, this goes on until the very last mile.

It was probably the best organised race that I have ever ran anywhere in the world.
