Rab Mountain Marathon

This year's RMM was my 2nd mountain marathon (both RMM) and both times it's been fantastic. Friendly atmosphere, like-minded people, great organisation. Because the location changes every year, it never gets old. Due to the huge variety of courses and score formats this event offers, there's some...

Equinox 24

This was my first attempt at endurance running and I loved it. It was a great event, great atmosphere, so many runners encouraging each other and giving each other support, the marshals and crowds were great especially in the campsite which you run the last 1km through. The course itself was fant...

Ladybower 50

A sheer running delight from start to finish. The anxiety about doing laps quickly gave way to appreciation of the benchmark every time Race HQ passed by and I experienced each lap as if it were new. Food and drink a plenty along the route, but with enough challenge for a hard fought 50 mile PB...

Ladybower 50

Ladybower 50 was my first Ultra back in 2014 and I have run it every year since. A great intro to Ultras, you really can't get lost on this one. Most of all, it's a beautiful route. It's simple and always full o nice folk. The organisers keep it simple. Cracking Ultra and a lovely day out running...

Ladybower 50

A fantastic event. As a first timer, I have to say how well organised this event was. A friendly bunch of organisers, and a great event. A hot day meant I didn't prepare enough to complete the full 50 miles, but enjoyed it all the same.

High Peak 40 Mile Challenge

My first-ever attempt at an ultra and I don't think I could have picked a better one. On my doorstep the 40 mile challenge is very well organised, take in some stunning Peak District scenery and is well marked throughout. Mostly ran along trails and fells there are some very steep climbs but your...

Equinox 24

I signed to Equinox24 as a foray into ultra running, to attempt a personal challenge and the fact that this race is on my doorstep. Arriving on the Friday gave me the chance to get camping kit in position, review the course and meet Laura and Jonny, the dynamic duo behind the race. Once people...

Equinox 24

Equinox 24 2016 - I ran as part of a small team of 4 ladies. I covered 60k and as a team we managed 260k. It was such a well organised event and in such stunning grounds of Belvoir Castle. It was a truly character building experience, not only conquering the hills but navigating your way in the d...

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.
