U.S. runner looking for hilly marathons & ultras in Uk, Europe
Here's a hilly marathon..
a list of ultras...
and a list of European marathons. sadly (for you) the really hilly one (Swiss alpine) is not until July
heres a list of some more Scottish ultras, some more hilly than others;
unfortunetly not many at the start of the year, but you could always run some of those routes yourself
langdale marathon. Ron Hill said it was the toughest road marathon in the world....quite a bg claim.
It is a toughie though.
Hi Laura - I'll be doing Haworth Hobble myself - I've not done it before, but it's a typical LDWA Challenge event - you have to carry a map, but are supplied with a detailed written description and you (should be!) sticking to recognised paths (trails)
another good one is Trollers Trot on March 5th (Yorkshire Dales)
or if you fancy the awesome scenery of the Lake District there's the Four Lakeland Passes on March 19th - that's "only" 18 miles, but you could always go out again the next day on your own - I'd be happy to suggest some good routes...
there are some "proper" long fell races in Feb/Mar - Kielder Borderer, Wadsworth Trog and Edale Skyline spring to mind - but the organisers would probably want proof of relevant experience before accepting entry...
Snowdonia Marathon is a must-do classic! Mostly road with a couple of off-road sections- including a dodgy descent to the finish over grass on tired legs!
Well, I keep going back anyway
