The Runfurther organisation has been running an annual competition based on existing ultra races since 2006. For the 2014 series a new team is in place, and the intention is to reconstitute Runfurther in early 2014 as a Company Limited by Guarantee, owned and controlled by the runners taking part in the series. An acting committee is running things at the moment, with the active help of Mark Hartell, one of the original founders of Runfurther, and the backing of Simon Berry and Karen McDonald, also founders of Runfurther. Runfurther operates on a voluntary basis, to benefit the running community. We’re doing it because we want a good Ultra series to compete in that doesn’t cost too much. We are working to get some commercial sponsorship in place at some point for 2014 to pay for such things as trophies, spot prizes and other unavoidable costs such as paying for this website. You will see us at the races, handing out series registration forms, putting up boards with the series results on, and of course running. The acting committee is:
- Andy Robinson
- Karen Nash
- Nick Ham
- Dick Scroop
If you want to help out then please get in touch – we could be doing more if we had more people involved. No contribution too small!
