Introducing Dulux Race to the King

Race News


We are VERY excited to announce that Race to the King has just got a lot more colourful and we will also be expecting a very special guest at basecamp…

Having transformed the London Revolution with their family-friendly basecamp takeover and indefatigable cheer squads, Dulux is now turning its attention to the world of Ultras.

Part of the Threshold Trail Series, Dulux Race to the King is an ultraaccessible, Ultra Marathon taking in a route through the beautiful South Downs and stunning Chichester Harbour along the Sussex coast. Over 1500 participants will tackle a newly designed figure of 8 course that starts and finishes at the historic Goodwood Racecourse.   

Dulux Race to the King’s new format is designed to make it the most ultra-accessible Ultra Marathon we have ever put on and Dulux are set to take it to the next level this summer. The course starts and finishes at Goodwood Racecourse Basecamp, making travel logistics easier for participants and supporters alike. Walkers, joggers and runners will be able to choose from a 50km or 100km route, with two equally scenic loops on the fully marked 100km figure of 8.  

Dulux believes in using the power of colour to help transform lives by uplifting communities and making living spaces more fun. They have been working with Threshold Sports since 2014 to support incredible experiences, as Nick Tuppen, CEO – Threshold Sports explains “Dulux has been a fantastic partner of our events since their debut in 2014 riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats as part of Ride Across Britain. Since then, their belief in the power of colour and their irrepressible enthusiasm has transformed the experiences of thousands of runners, walkers and riders. 

For the past 5 years, Dulux has sponsored the iconic cycling challenge, London Revolution and this new partnership continues their commitment to bring together their customers, colleagues and communities in a brilliant memorable event surrounded by colour. John Kourtoulos Sales Director UK & I at Dulux commented, “We have a rich history of working with Threshold to create phenomenal experiences that combine people, businesses, and our customers. These incredible events have now become a big part of our CSR strategy, forming key points in our yearly calendar of events. Having enjoyed 5 brilliant years as partners for the London Revolution we are excited to begin a new chapter and broaden the experience we create.  

Dulux Race to the King promises to be a unique Ultra Marathon experience, and both Threshold Sports and Dulux are looking forward to the continuation of their partnership, Nick continues “The Dulux Race to the King is the perfect way to extend their relationship and they are set to redefine what people can expect from endurance events. Whether taking on the shorter distances or the mighty 100km weekend challenge, people will never have seen the South Downs this colourful!”
