The 2021 Races

The 2021 Runfurther Ultra Championship races are listed below.  If you click on the race name that will take you to our page about the race, which then has a link to the official race website.  Most of the races are already open for entries, so don’t wait until it’s too late!  If you want to read the Runfurther race reports for previous years, click on the ‘Category’ for the race you’re interested in – they’re on the right side of most webpages.  All our race reports should still be there, although I can’t guarantee all the links to other websites still work.

You may notice there are currently only 10 races on the list. We’re hoping to make it up to the usual 12, but Covid takes no prisoners. The Haworth Hobble, the Calderdale Hike and the Fellsman have all been cancelled for 2021. Due to the uncertainty this year we are relaxing the rules slightly, just for 2021. Your best Long race will count, and the best three of your other races – these will be no requirement to complete a Short or Medium race this year.
