Race to the Stones

It was my first 100km race and the longest I've ever done. Everything went smoothly: registration, bag transfer, well stocked stations, very easy navigation!! Loved it!! :-) A bit pricey though but pretty much everything was taken care of for you. :-)

Race to the Stones

It was my 1st 100km and a totally incredible experience. The organization was great, the support fantastic. All the support staff work so hard to make it an unforgettable experience for all the right reasons. If I did have one suggestion to improve one thing,it's the queuing for hot food at base ...

Race to the Stones

My only experience of ultra running so far is with Threshold Sports - the organisers of RTTS and RTTK (Race to the King). I ran RTTS in July BECAUSE I loved RTTK so much in June. Basically, as a first 50km experience RTTS was brilliant. I loved the undulating route, there was some crowding at the...

Race to the Stones

I have run this twice now (the 100k straight through - not brave enough to try and wake up and set out again!) and will be back again next year. Threshold look after you incredibly well (the same at Race to the King), with great medics and crew and the most fabulous array of food and drink. The...

Race to the Stones

Amazing event and my first multi day ultra event. I did the overnight option in preparation for upping my distance to 100km in one go next year (needed to see quite how far 100km actually was before jumping in the deep end!!). The organisation from Threshold Sports was just fantastic. The supp...

Race to the Stones

I took part in the 2016 Race to the Stones. I was running alongside a friend who was unfortunately injured so we walked the 100km non-stop. It was a great experience, loved the different types of scenery and terrain. I'm glad I wore road shoes though! The aid stations were great, there was loads ...

Race to the Stones

My first Ultra and longest distance since Brighton half-marathon in February! I completed the RTTS 100km 2016 over the 2 days with overnight in the glorious basecamp. The whole event was amazingly organised, super mellow, great pit stops, well signed, lovely staff and just totally rad. I started...

UTMB runner stripped of 5th place after doping

Sadly, doping in sport never seems too far away from our daily news feeds. Sadder still is the fact that some sports and countries are now perpetually associated with cases of illegal drug-taking, like European cycling competitions or, currently in this week’s news headlines, alleged State-sanctioned athletics doping in Russia.

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.

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?
