I just wanted to drop a quick link to our latest event, 48 Hours in Clumber.  a 10k mixed trail route, see how far you can go in 48 hours!

Free camping, on site refreshments, a great atmosphere, and I'm sure some great memories for everyone.  Open to solo runners, pairs, teams.  We also have a 24 or 12 hour option for anyone who wants a slightly shorter distance!!

What state is the course in ?  What is the latest I can enter?

Be interested to know if anyone has heard from these guys in a while? I emailed them asking a few questions as was thinking of entering but email address on website returned a delivery failure.

Also asked a question via message to the facebook page and no response - that was over a week ago. Can't help thinking it's maybe not going ahead...

I get that feeling too.

I have a friend entered in the 48h, I mentioned this thread to her she emailed them about something yesterday and got a reply this evening! 

Seems perfectly fine.

i have been in contact with them last week and every thing was ok. also left a message on a mobile number and they got back to me

Does anyone have more information about this event yet?   Is Clumber Park a fairly flat area? Do the tracks tend to get muddy?  Any idea of the number of entries - is it likely to be a small low-key event like most ultras tend to be, or a large event with lots of runners, along the lines of the Thunder Run?

I entered the 48hour event some months ago.

Hummmm... Someone on facebook just said they heard it had been cancelled... Hate to spread unsubstantiated comments... But doesn't look good.

Cancellation will be a disappointment as I quite liked their proposed format, and I can't think of a suitable alternative in England or Wales - is there one?

12/02/2014 at 20:46

Woops!! Just read an email from the Clumber organisers - it is cancelled, although they don't give the reasons. 

Anyone any idea about a suitable alternative??????

Are you getting your money back? 

12/02/2014 at 21:57

They are reimbursing entry fees but it is really annoying cancelling the event only 3 weeks before. Reading between the lines they haven't been able to agree a route with Clumber Park - which isn't great, given that entries have been open for nearly 9 months. 

This was going to be my first 24 hour relay race. We had 3 teams as well individual runners entered and people have bought sleeping bags and kit specifically for the event, so disappointed is an understatement.

Little Miss Blister, I've just had a look ultra marathon website and there seem to be a few 24 hour events scattered around the country, so you might be lucky and find a suitable alternative for your teams. 

Sadly, I can't spot another 48 hour event for myself.

Thanks Preston, I'll have a look.

Sorry that there isn't a suitable 48 hour event for you.

There will be a 48 hour event as part of the 6 Day Celtic Ultra Fest in September in Weston Super Mare. It will be on the promenade, not quite a trail... but there will be camping in a field if thats worth anything.

Everything from 100 km events up. If there's enough interest perhaps we can consider a team event too.
