Wanting In!

With the ever-increasing interest in the sport of ultrarunning has come an explosion of prospective entrants for certain races. This popularity has race directors resorting to lotteries, wait lists and other measures, in some cases just short of asking entrants for their firstborn for entry into their events.

69 Miles/Two Days Across The British Countryside

The idea of doing this iconic event sprang up a few weeks after the Trans Rockies multi-day run in 2013 – after the brain had suppressed the pain of that undertaking.
