Leadville Trail 100 Run

I paced for Leadville this year (2016) and it was an amazing experience! The race is exceptionally well run, with tons of volunteers at each aid station. There are plenty of snack/hydration choices for everyone - they really cater to runners at each station and make sure they have something that ...

Leadville Trail 100 Run

This is one of the legendary 100M races in the States and up in the top 5 hard category. It is very well organized but aid stations are quite far apart (hours later in race) and course markings are also far apart in the forest at night when you can be alone. In 2016 there were 654 toed the line...

Javelina Jundred 100 Mile Endurance Run

This is a grea beginner 100M as it only has 6,250' of climb, sandy smooth trail and is run in 15M loops. It does get hot during the day, a dry heat to 80s and drops down at night to 40/50. Many people volunteer to get their service requirement out of the way for other races, so expect plenty of...

The Bear Chase

I've done the 50M & 62M here, they don't have a 100M. These are really great flat fast courses over 12.5m loops in Bear Creek Lkae Park which is in a suburb of Denver. So they are not high in the Rockies only at 5,300' up. Sandy trail with few rocks & roots. Many aid stations and a great view...

Black Spur Ultra

Great course, really well organized by Brian the RD. I ran the 54k. Leg 1 is technical and lots of climbing, and the course gets easier and easier in leg 2 and 3. Leg 3 is very runnable, if you still have the legs left to run! Kimberley is a lovely town to stay. There are restaurants and caf...

Hell On The Humber

First timer at the 12 hour event in August 2016. Cannot reccomend this highly enough. I'm not an ultra runner, I'm just a runner but this event enabled me to complete something I wouldn't believe possible. The event is very well organised, safety and welfare of the participants second to none. F...

   
 

LATEST REVIEW

La Sportiva Akasha

I reviewed the La Sportiva Helios SR 2.0, earlier this year and was itching to see how the Akashas would perform in comparison. Billed by La Sportiva as being an endurance, mountain running shoe possibly undersells these shoes. I have put in a few hundred kms on these now in just about every condition. Whilst they are not 100% flawless, they did not disgrace themselves in mud, wet and dry rocks or sand.

Running across Malawi: 27 marathons in 27 days

Brendan Rendall, from Manchester in the UK, has just run across the whole of the African country of Malawi. The distance broke down into the equivalent of 27 marathons and it took him 27 days. His motivation was to raise money for a children’s charity, FOMO (Friends of Mulanje Orphans) and so far he has raised £27,000 which has funded a new school building.

Difficulty ratings

Afternoon folks, I'm new here but have a few ultras under my belt. I was wondering what aspects of a course determined the difficult star rating for the races (i.e. intermediate, advanced, expert, ultra, etc.) as it doesn't seem to be distance. Don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Cheers Rik

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.
