What distance should an ultra be?
I am thinking of organising an ultramarathon and wanted some advice. The location is awesome, scenery, history, wildlife all unbeatable. So it has lots of great ingredients already. It is on an island and we will need to charter a plane so it will be a pricey event and we would be away for a week. What do you think would be the best distance? It is hilly (not mountainous) in a temperate climate. I was thinking of offering a single stage 100 miles as the main race with a 50 mile option. Would 100 miles exclude too many people? Is it too far?
Thank you for any advice!
