A couple of noteworthy events for 2015 are the Hope 24 in May and the Ramathon in June
was created in 2013 by Danny Slay, a fireman from Plymouth with a dream of a local ultra event and in the process raise money for charity.
Based at Newnham Park, the location offers hills, mud, streams, woodland and trail but in a peaceful location despite being 10 minutes drive from the City.
Like the Endure 24 that the club took part in last year, there are options of solo runners and teams running for 24 hours. Mark Willcocks is co-ordinating the UKnr entry and takes up the story:
'Team UKnetrunner are booked in for 2015 and after our performance at Endure24 in 2014 we have a target to chase....
The solo winner clocked over 130 miles in 2014 and I've heard the chase is on to beat that in 2015.
The event is filling up well and offers the chance for soloist and pairs and is priced very fair as once again charity is the main winner.
Watch the forum for updates and information, I can't promise rain and as much mud as Endure but mummy makes great meat patties and I'm sure I can get her to make proper janner handbags...(pasties to the grockles..) a superb, well marshalled and organised event, and good clean Devon air....'
After the NTRIX the next handicap event will be the Ramathon on the 7th June.
Based in Derby the event is a flat, yet scenic half marathon with a stadium start and finish making it ideal for spectators too. Entries are now open here
