Ultra Calendar Updated

I’ve finally found some time to update the Ultra Calendar, and the tab to click on has reappeared too – sorry it went missing during the website updates the other week. All the UK ultras we know about are on this calendar, apart from those who haven’t yet announced when their next date is. The […]

2015 Prizegiving and AGM Report

Apologies for the delay in getting this report up, but I’ve had to spend the last week doing urgent non-Runfurther things I’d had to put off while I was getting ready for the AGM & 2016 race launch. All photos were taken by Nick Ham: there are more on Nick’s Flickr site.

We had a […]

We are delighted to be able to announce the races that will make up the Runfurther Ultra Championship 2016. We think we’ve got a great year’s running coming up, although we can’t guarantee we’ll be as lucky with the weather in 2016 as we were this year! Five races have been retained from 2015:

Jedburgh 3 Peaks Ultra 2015

027

This was the 12th and last of the 2015 Runfurther Championship races, and it really was a belter. The start location was in Jedburgh, and the picture above shows the view of the abbey from the race headquarters. Noanie and Angela (the race organisers) put on a great event, so many thanks to them […]

Isle of Man Mountain Ultra 2015 – updated

024

The Isle of Man Mountain Ultra is a race of real quality. If it was on the mainland they’d be turning runners away: every ultra runner who likes the hills should run this race at least once. There are 12 controls in its 31 miles, each one at the top of a hill. It’s […]

Hardmoors 60 2015

010

A beautiful sunny September day made the Hardmoors 60 a delightful experience. Until some of us ran out of steam, that is. There are a lot of ups and downs running along that coast, and I for one wasn’t up to the task and pulled out half way through. Plenty of others were fitter […]

Bullock Smithy 2015

P1010144

Well I wasn’t there, so I can’t talk a lot about the Bullock Smithy. I was running the Across Wales Walk instead. Karen and Nick were there though, and were handing out Giraffe neckwear to those who’ve run 4 counters. Nick seems to have had a very good run, and Karen, unusually for her, had […]

Ken Sutor, Lose Hill

Many thanks to Richard and his team for putting on such a good day at Bradwell for us, and all the other runners as well of course. It was a hot day, and some of us were a bit slower than we’d hoped to have been, […]
