Just wanted to let you know about a new race in North Yorkshire based around Rosedale 13 and 27 mile route options. We are raising money for the Royal Marines Charitable trust fund http://www.yorkshireultra.co.uk
Hope you can make it
Lirish, We hadnt even thought about combining the two, It is feasible and a great idea. I will include it within the options and make changes on the site.
The route map will be published just as soon as we get the hang of the new software I am using.
Hope to see you there.
In all honesty Trev the charity is one I'd be more than happy to support, my workplace is inaundated with ex booties and we train with the special sailors fairly often. I wouldn't consider a 27 mile run an ultra though even though I know technically it is, I think, strange as it may seem, you may be more of an uptake combining the two.
Indeed! Great to chat and hope to see you on the "Lirish 40" as its now known in Rosedale. Changes to the site made already.
The just giving donations page for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, is now live, can you also help us to spread the word out by clicking on this link and "liking" the site on facebook. We are also promoting the Royal Marines Charitable trust through our Adventure Racing Club in Yorkshire

Update for the Yorkshire Ultra in Rosedale 13-30--40 Mile options
Just a quick update on progress for the race in Rosedale on the 19th November. Entries are looking really good, we have hit the 80 mark already, despite some online booking difficulties. I know that plenty of you tried to book online but couldn't sorry for that. The IT guy's tried to fix the bug but resorted to re-building the whole site instead. The new Race Adventure site is now live and hopefully without the bugs...The site content is still being added to but includes videos, a learning centre, blog/news section as well as race bookings.
Night Trail Series Update
As the nights draw in we thought that we would introduce a series of night trail races to keep your motivation and drive right up there. The first of these races is on the 1st of October in East Yorkshire just outside of Pocklington over the Yorkshire Wolds. There are 10 and 20 mile options available. Night Trail racing is a very different aspect of trail running, exciting and great fun. For more information go to Night Trail
