There is no doubt that the quality of blogs this year has been outstanding. After much deliberation, and it was a very daunting task, we have chosen the shortlist for the RunUltra Blogger Award for 2016.
A big thank you to everyone who nominated a blogger. We received a total of 108 bloggers nominated from every corner of the globe.
Interestingly we had a 32% female bloggers and 68% male split for nominations (excluding our couples that blog) and 37% female and 63% male in our final shortlist which is shown in alphabetical order below with a link to their website. Many congratulations to all those who made the list.
The quality, dedication and passion for ultra marathons and trail running shines through brightly in much of the writing from the bloggers that you nominated.
We had a strict scoring criteria in place as explained in our recent forum post and the bloggers were scored out of a total score of 60 on the following criteria.
Quality of Imagery
Quality of Copy
We’ve included social pages as a form of microblogging. Please note this is a ‘blogger' award not a ‘blog' award.
We have a total of 62 names on our shortlist (that’s how difficult it was as we did not want to exclude some great blogs, given the high standard of nominations). Voting is now open until 23.59 on 15th January 2017. The final selection as to who wins the award and fabulous Suunto Spartan Ultra Sports Watch is now in your hands.
We have a special voting logo below to help our shortlisted bloggers with getting their votes.
