For some of us the New Year signals the start of training for the London Marathon (or Brighton, or Manchester, wherever you have chosen to race) but for some people 26.2 miles just isn’t enough!
Last year over a dozen of our supporters decided to go loooong and take on an ultra marathon.
An Ultra is any race/walk over 26.2 miles in length, usually (but not exclusively) on trails and paths, such as the Ridgeway, the Thames Path, London to Brighton, or even the Race to the King (South Downs) usually from 30 miles (50k’ish) up to 100 miles!
Some people run, some people walk, some races offer the opportunity to do it over 2 days (The Race to the Stones or the Race to the King) with camping overnight.
Over the Summer David Moss was one of those intrepid adventurers who took on the challenge of an ultra marathon for Sobell House, the 100km Race to the Stones, click the button below to read his story.
