3 Towers Ultra

Great run - some challenging terrain and tricky navigation but all adds to the fun! Spectacular views and very well supported - very friendly feeling to the event with a lovely pub at the end.


Wooler Trail Marathon

I ran this in November 2016. This was the first running of this race and what a beauty it is. Apart from a short tarmac section at the start and finish this race takes you through the Cheviot hills, along the Pennine Way and St Cuthberts Way. As it takes in the summit of the Cheviot itself, this ...


Haría Extreme

There are races and there are races – this is, most certainly, the latter. Haria Extreme is a race I would do year in and year out if it were closer to home and my experience was one of absolute delight, basically you can’t go wrong by entering. It has everything packaged up as a lovely low key ...


Ring of Steall Skyrace™

Toughest (possibly slowest!) 18 miles in my running career. Breathtaking in every sense. We were blessed with stunning weather and no midges! I would definitely score this race closer to 4.5 for difficulty.Not just 3!!! After a half mile of road the race 'proper' opens with pretty much a VK to s...


The Druid Challenge

2016 - ran purely as MdS prep last year but returned again this year to have a proper crack at the race. UK multi-day races simply don't get any better than this. Beautiful and challenging course. Excellent organisation. Fantastic atmosphere. XNRG really look after everyone whether you are an ul...

The Cotswold Way Challenge Multistage Ultra

A great event in beautiful surroundings. The Extreme energy team are a great bunch and took the time to get to know everyone, it has a very family feel about it and I can see why people come back to these events. Plenty of aid stations throughout the day and during the evening you get a talk from...


Wendover Woods 50

I ran this in its first year (2016). I had some reservations about the fact it is five laps as I have previously found laps or out and back routes to be mentally challenging. However, it is fairly local to me and the elevation profile appealed - I like hills and wanted a challenge. I also know th...


The New Forest 50km

Great small event with lapped course on good trails. Friendly marshalls and very good quality tech T-Shirt. Recommended as a well-organised, beginner friendly ultra. Drawback - there were errors in the chip timing results for the 50k. Such things happen, but despite trying several times to cont...



Ronhill hydration vests

I associate Ronhill with no-nonsense, practical gear for the hills and this is very much what you get with these two hydration packs. They are designed for different things, the Pioneer having more features and the Nano being very stripped down and race ready.

How many miles is enough?

Hi, I have just got back into running after a long break, (18 years long!) I am 45 btw. I am following a marathon programme and doing 20-25miles a week and I am finding its all going very well. My plan was to do the Dorchester marathon in May and then I thought well maybe ill do Gloucester in February and now my thoughts have turned to ultras. I live in Warminster Wiltshire and am a couple of miles away from where the Imber Ultra 33m starts in March and now I am keen to do that. I can up my miles to 4 or 5 a week and maybe 30-35 miles a week but no more due to work and family commitments, so the question is will that be enough? Any thoughts would be appreciated and tips on training and kit etc. Dean

Addo Elephant Trail Run

This thread is setup for queries and information regarding the Addo Elephant Trail Run™, presented by Raidlight® The race is ITRA certified, and points for finishing are allocated as follows: 100 Mile - 6 points 76km - 4 points 44km - 2 points If you are looking for a truly wild trail running adventure, then we invite you to take on the 100 Mile, 76km or 44km ultra-trail runs through the vast and beautiful Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run wild and free through true African wilderness? Imagine being surrounded by the animals, sights and sounds of the African bush as you test yourself against the distance & challenges of an ultra trail run? Come and feel the excitement and thrill of running wild through the African bush! Addo is the ONLY national park in the world that can lay claim to having the Big 7 (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, southern right whale and the great white shark). With race routes designed to test you both mentally and physically, the trails track the rugged Zuurberg mountains and beautiful valleys of the park. You will be challenged to run on a wide range of terrain including single track trails, 4x4 tracks and old jeep tracks within the park itself, as well as some stretches of dirt road. You will encounter a large number of river crossings, and will also face some challenging climbs, with expansive views at the top that are simply amazing! You will be running in areas of the park that are home to a variety of wild animals, and you stand a chance of seeing animals such as kudu, impala, baboons, ostriches, bushbuck, black backed jackals, mountain reedbuck, red hartebeest, mountain zebra, warthogs and the largest antelope in the world - the eland! These have all been spotted on our route recces. For safety purposes you are kept away from those areas of the park with lions, elephant, rhino or buffalo, but you are free to explore these areas before or after the race. We are exceptionally privileged to be able to present an ultra trail event in this amazing location, and to provide our athletes with the opportunity to see and experience it from such a unique perspective. If you think you are fit enough to go the distance then click here to enter now, and come and experience a truly wild ultra trail running adventure! Please post any queries you may have regarding the event in this thread, and we will respond.

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.
