North Downs Way 50

I have run this race in 2014 and 2016. This time around it was as part of the inaugural Centurion 50 Mile Grand Slam. NDW50 is the second race of the series with two more to come later in the year. Centurion as an ultra running events company absolutely nail it every time. Their willingness to t...

Dukeries Ultra

Well organised, well marked and scenic mostly off road ultra. Well worth the money.

Dukeries Ultra

Very well organised event. The course was marked out, with frequent tape and signs and arrows, The route was mostly following the Robin Hood Way, and taking us through parts of Sherwood Forest and Clumber Park. The course wasn't really hilly as such, just a few undulations. Overall a good ultra f...

Dukeries Ultra

Second year for me on the 40 mile Dukeris ultra. A perfect course for a beginner like myself, lots of well stocked checkpoints and a perfectly marked trail. Relatively flat, very scenic and a real good buzz amongst competitors - I shall be back next year.

North Downs Way 50

This was my 2nd running of the NDW50. Having done the SDW50 earlier on this year, I fancied the 'Downs Double' so set off with a hope of getting sub 11 hours on the North Downs. The day was perfect for running, not a cloud in the sky. In my opinion, the NDW50 is a run of 2 halves. The 1st is rela...

Malvern Hills Ultra

I completed this event this year (2016). I really enjoyed the event, found it both scenic and challenging. Extremely well organised - the food at the checkpoints was varied and plentiful. I ran with a pacing group which provided navigation and a way to minimise the blister pain ! Would recommend ...

Dukeries Ultra

I ran the 30 mile route in 2016 as my first run/race over marathon distance. Having previously run the Dukeries 10 twice, I had every confidence that Ronnie would put on a great event, and I was not disappointed. The race briefing was informative and humorous, with Ronnie making it very clear t...

A stunning location, barren and beautiful. The BaM team are experienced race managers and this is a fine addition to the Scottish Ultra series. The link to my full race report is below. https://jamesstewart13.com/2016/05/09/race-report-glen-lyon-ultra/

Footware for Pyrenees

Hi, Has anyone any experience of the Buff Epic Trail Aiguestortes? I'm trying to find recommendation for footwear for the 42Km race? I cant find any race reports which outline the terrain but it looks quite hard packed with streams and steep climbs totaling 6,400m. Alternatively any experience running in the Pyrenees in July? I was thinking of an Inov8 Ultra 270. Thanks.

Thinking about my first ultra

I have a long term goal to run an ultra but have started getting drawn into the world of distance running sooner than I had expected. Was keen to look at the possibility of a beginner friendly 50k later in the summer but not finding anything suitable although I have unfortunately found a 50 mile run in a perfect location at an ideal time, argh. But, I have a horrible feeling that no matter how much I want to do this it might be biting off more than I can chew given personal circumstances at the moment. I am able to run 5 days per week but can only do one 6-7 mile run during the week all others have to be shorter. Would it be possible to train for 50 miles doing most of the runs with back to back long runs at the weekend? (20 weeks to go) Have the feeling that I am being hopelessly unrealistic but would be good to get the thoughts of the people with experience who had to make that decision to start somewhere... Thanks

Marathon du Mont Blanc

Hello, Has anyone signed up for this and looking to swap hints and tips leading up the event? My husband and I entered the marathon with the results of the ballot being released on Monday. Already booked accommodation and lucky enough to arrive the weekend before to acclimatise (live at sea level). We're overdue a holiday so if we're not successful in any of the races we'll still have fun cheering others on.

Tuscany Crossing, April 23, 2016

Are you dreaming to race an ultra-trail in the sweets Tuscany hills? You can do it in some of the most extraordinary UNESCO SITES, one of this unique places is Val d’Orcia with its unbelievable landscapes. The course remembers the journeys of pilgrims that for centuries have traveled in this land that in Roman age connected Rome with the rest of its empire thanks the Romea, Cassia and Francigena roads. Val d’Orcia is rich of castles, fortifications and medieval churches where travelers, pilgrims, warriors and important persons same as Sigerico bishop of Canterbury found refuge. To run the Tuscany Crossing 100 km is as to “DREAM” to be one of these ancients travelers. The race “The dream long 100 km” starts the 26th April 2016 at 5 am. As the ancient travelers you will pass through woods, fords, vineyards treading and white roads. To reach Bagno Vignoni with its water plaza, Pienza the city of Pope Pio II, San Quirico d’Orcia, Montalcino the homeland of Brunello wine you’ll wade across the Orcia river, but it is still not over, now you will be only halfway, Sant’Antimo Abbey, Castelnuovo Abate and the long uphill to the Vivo d’Orcia with its fresh springs and its magical wood will be waiting for you and also the arrival to Castiglione d’Orcia. visite the site: www.tuscanycrossing.com

First Ultra

Hi, I was reading the other post on first ever Ultra and have the same question, what is a good Ultra race to kick things off? I've run the London the past 3 years and train up 90miles/week and run a 2:42 marathon and was hoping this will give me enough of a base to tackle a 50mile. I've no idea if I can even run this long. I'm 50 in 2 years and saw the Comrades mentioned on the other post and would love to try that as a birthday present. Between then and now any advise on a good event to do, I live in the Manchester area but further a field is great too?

Ultra Marathons

Hi all, I am working as part of a team on our Final Year University Project, looking into the feasibility of setting up an Ultra Marathon event within the UK. We would be grateful if you could fill in the attached questionnaire about Ultra-Marathons, it should take no longer than 5 minutes and it would be a huge help for our research. https://qtrial2016q1az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3ISwjdKiIavftE9 Thank you very much!
