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 Two Moors Ultra Marathon Exmoor to Dartmoor:
This epic Two Moors Ultra Exmoor to Dartmoor passes through classically Devon countryside, starting in Lynmouth and finishing in Ivybridge. You will run through the night and anyone who finishes inside 24 hours will receive a special prize!

This is a very challenging self navigation ultra, crossing two national parks: Exmoor in the north of Devon, Mid Devon and Dartmoor National Park, following the recently relaunched Two Moors Way. Despite the minimal ascent, only experienced ultra runners or participants with good navigation skills will be accepted. Even in September, good weather can not be assured and parts of the route can become boggy. We think you will wonder why you have never done this before.

Castle 2 Coast:
Dont be fooled, this is no baby ultra! Its a fully fledged Dartmoor Crossing, following the Two Moors Way, which will require self navigation skills.

Lynmouth Marathon:
This follows the Two Moors Way from Lynmouth seafront to the village of Knowstone in Mid Devon. Along the way you will cross Exmoor and Mid Devon on the original Two Moors Way and will probably wonder why youve never done this before!

Drogo Ultra (35 miles):
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September but finishes in Ivybrdge instead of Wembury.

Castle Drogo Half Marathon:
Starts alongside the Castle To Coast Ultra on Sunday 30th September

Exmoor to Drogo (60 miles):
Starts alongside the TMU on Saturday September 29th and ends at Drogo Castle. Camping and parking is provided.

Ultra Runners South Australia with Sarah Barnett and in conjunction with Campbelltown City Council is proud to announce the Adelaide 6 Day event taking place in picturesque Thorndon Park Reserve. Starting on September 30, 2018, this is going to be a great race for all of the multi-day runners out there!

The main race is 6 days but there is also a 48 hour and 72 hour race for those who feel 6 days might be too much of a jump for this year.

Thorndon Park is a great location for running. The certified 1430m cement track, with 10m elevation per lap, is perhaps one of the most scenic going around. And with the world-class timing technology, coupled with the great support from the event suppliers such as First In Sports First Aid, this event is set to be incredibly well-rounded and professionally presented.
