Let's bust the myth that Ultra Marathons are for elite athletes only
Naturally, some people think Ultra Marathons are only for elite endurance runners, experienced in sprinting up snow-topped mountains and crossing vast, barren deserts.
But try telling that to our participants! They are mums and dads, nurses and teachers, grandparents and students. They are weekend hikers, post-work yoga masters and two-wheeled commuters. One thing they all share is the belief that more is in them, and with the support of each other, they will make it to the finish!
This challenge will not be easy and it will require a commitment from you to train and prepare for the event, but we believe with enough focus and support, anything is possible.
Our events are designed to challenge, whatever your fitness level. More serious runners aim for a specific time while for others completing the distance is the goal. Whichever you are, with the right preparation, you can do it!
Our aim is for all walkers and runners to cross the finish line with an unimaginable sense of achievement and a lifetime of amazing memories.
We won’t lie, training isn’t easy! Juggling family and social life and work is no walk in the park, however, we strive to make your journey as smooth as possible. Above all, you will have an incredible crew and the most incredible community to share the experience and keep you motivated from sign-up to start line.
Check out our blog to see real stories of how people juggle family, work and social life with their training.
