27 miles? Seems like an odd choice?

That's exactly what I was thinking Seren, I'm very much an ultra newbie and I haven't gone beyond 50 yet but even I'd be a little embarrassed saying I was an ultra runner if I'd done this. Would maybe made more sense to tack on another 5 and call it a 50k do you think?

You could just do both really fast and call it a 40 miler?

In all honesty Vertor that may not be a bad idea, I haven't looked at the site so I don't know if it's feasible but that would tempt me far more than a 27.

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.

Looking like it's going to be a good turnout for this first race.  This is just a reminder that the early bird discount for the race finishes on the 31st of August.

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
