What you need to know about Ultramarathon Running

An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.

The fourth staging of The Twilight Ultra takes place at the Redbridge Cycle Centre in East London after another successful year in 2017.

The secure, traffic-free, undulating, tarmac route sees runners covering laps of the cycle circuit and finishing on what will, hopefully, be a balmy summers evening.

With good parking and spectating facilities, the event features a choice of three distances with start times varying according to the distance you select. Aim high and select the ultra distance and you can always step down to a shorter distance.

Runners will be able to take advantage of well-stocked aid stations on each lap with the availability of hot and cold food and drink.

Starting on the bank of the Usk river in the market town of Brecon, the Beacons100 ultra marathon will take you on a journey across the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains, an area we absolutely adore due to its beautiful scenery, and unforgiving terrain.

In a similar fashion to our winter event, the Beacons Ultra, you will find very tough terrain, fell in abundance, changeable weather conditions and the finest support to get you to the finish line. Completion = 6 UTMB points for your efforts.

To enter the Beacons100 it is expected that you will have completed a minimum of one 40 mile trail event in the 2017/2018 season and you can navigate effectively. We will host free navigation and footcare seminars leading up the event so if you are unsure about your navigation ability don't let that put you off. We welcome runners and hikers alike. Be aware that this is an incredibly tough adventure!

The Beacons 100 will begin at 20.00hrs on the 17th of August with a cut off time of 18.00hrs on the 19th of August.

The run starts and ends in Silverton, Colorado and travels through the towns of Telluride, Ouray, and the ghost town of Sherman, crossing thirteen major passes in the 12,000' to 13,000' range. Entrants must travel above 12,000 feet (3,700 m) of elevation a total of 13 times, with the highest point on the course being the 14,048' summit of Handies Peak. The run has been held in early July of each year beginning in 1992, except for 1995 (too much snow) and 2002 (nearby forest fires). Each year's run is run in the opposite direction of the previous year's event (2016 was run in the clockwise direction, 2017 will be counter-clockwise). In order to complete the event, instead of crossing a finish line, runners are required to "kiss the Hardrock", a picture of a ram's head painted on a large block of stone mining debris.

This course offers a graduate level challenge for endurance runs. The course is designed to provide extreme challenges in altitude, steepness, and remoteness. Mountaineering, wilderness survival and wilderness navigation skills are as important in this event as your endurance.
