UFC® TO HOST ULTI-MAN™ 5K ON JULY 4 DURING UFC INTERNATIONAL FIGHT WEEK™ 
Las Vegas, Nev. – During UFC International Fight Week™, come run, jog or walk alongside UFC stars as they race throughout the heart of downtown Las Vegas for the Ulti-man™ 5k run, presented by UFC FIT™ and UFC GYM®, starting at 8 a.m. PT on Friday, July 4, rain or shine. Registration starts at 7 a.m. followed by a UFC FIT inspired warm-up at 7:30 a.m. with UFC FIT Coach Mike Dolce, UFC women’s bantamweight Miesha Tate and UFC GYM coaches. 

The event starts and finishes at Hogs & Heifers Saloon (201 N. 3rd Street). The flat, easy 3.1-mile course is designed for fans looking to stay active and runners and walkers of all fitness levels. Participants can expect to visit UFC FIT stations throughout the course where they will be motivated through training techniques by UFC stars. The Ulti-man 5k course runs alongside Fremont Street Experience and passes by legendary casinos, the world famous Viva Vision canopy that spans the length of five football fields, novelty restaurants, shops and sites of historic firsts. 

Participants are encouraged to register in advance. The registration fee is $35 per participant and all participants receive an official Ulti-man race t-shirt and a medal. 

The Ulti-man 5k through the UFC Community Works® program will donate a portion of the entry fee to help support Three Square Food Bank, ONE DROP, The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada and Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada.
