2. If you've run trails and are considering an Ultra race, then planetFear are sponsoring the SBU35 Ultra Trail race in August and the organisers have set up a Recce Weekend. The event takes place on 30th May/1st June and completes the entire race route of 35 miles over two days, with accommodation included. It's a great opportunity to learn the fantastic route and to get at flavour from the other runners of what it's like to run an ultra. Last years race winners are planning to attend and it promises to be a laid back, fun filled weekend. Full details are here.
3. SBU35 2014 - Sat. 30th August: If you've always wanted to run an ultra then this is the event for you! It's a stunning, 35 mile point to point route offers some fantastic scenery and has the right mix of fast flat tracks and challenging climbs. It's a route for those starting out in the world of ultra running and for experienced distance runners looking for a fast route. Details here and the event website can be found here.
