So what is Ultramarathon all about?
Ultramarathon was set up to put the 'fun' into fun running and along the way, it is our intention to raise money for some good causes.
All entries to the runs organised at Stanwick Lakes include a percentage donation to Rockingham Forest Trust which goes towards the maintenance and protection of the Stanwick Lakes environment and we also encourage all entrants to raise sponsorship for The Richard Hunt Foundation, The Roald Dahl Foundation and Action for Kids. Alternatively, you may wish to raise funds for a charity of your choosing.
And don't forget that 5k and 10k races are a great way of maintaining your fitness or forming a basis of your training towards longer events such as half or full marathons. Both The Roald Dahl Foundation and Action for Kids have entries available to running events ranging from 10k to full marathon distance both at home and abroad; we would be happy to provide details upon request or you may wish to contact the charities direct.
Above all, stay active, get fit and keep on running. And remember, you don't stop running because you get old, you get old because you stop running. Whether you are a budding Paula Radcliffe or a back of the pack runner, we hope you will enjoy running with Ultramarathon but please, unlike Paula, ensure that you use the official toilet facilities!
Ultramarathon are pleased to support the Pilgrim Bandits; log onto the Pilgrim Bandit website for full details of the excellent causes they raise funding for and details of some amazing challenges.
