London Ultra Marathon

with 4 comments

This was just an awesome event.  But more importantly I believe it will stand out and grow into one of those like the London Marathon. The run had everything; it was challenging – long, hills, sights of London, parks, navigation but all doable as well as many fun participants.

If you are looking for a challenge in your life or even a life changing experience then perhaps this is for you in the future. A marathon or more is a huge decision for most people.  Running a mile is often big enough but to train your body to cope with the pounding it will take and believe that it will be able to make it is in itself life changing. The London Ultra is a distance that is very achievable.  It offers beautiful scenery (if you are able to take it in) and will certainly challenge you without taking over schedule as might those multi day events.

Training should start soon for next year so maybe this is the one for you…  It will be a lot bigger in 2011!

  2. This event had it all. Brilliant route, amazing competitors and extremely good organisation. This event will only go from strength to strength and I for one will come back in 2011. Well done guys you certainly got it right.

      • Only my 2nd Ultra and I absolutely loved it, the point to point route is great, and knowing you were going to see so much of the “greener” side of London and new sights just added to the experience, I’ll be back next year!
