RunUltra needs YOU

Last updated: 19-Jul-18

We are very happy and honoured to announce that we have been nominated as best online community  in the 2017 Running Awards. Now, we just need your vote

The whole team has been working really hard to build up our online community through our website, facebook page and twitter feed. We pride ourselves on having the most comprehensive list of ultras on the planet, great reviews, training programmes, nutrition tips, how to’s and how not to’s, news of runners and races and a few jokes here and there.

But YOU, the ultra running community, are by far and away the most important part of the equation. By sharing your reviews and your news on www.runultra.co.uk  we can broadcast an independent critique of hundreds of races worldwide. We are the platform and you guys are the trains…

The Running Awards were set up by Reality Awards Ltd because they wanted to fill a gap.

There were many ‘running awards’ out there, but not one was adjudicated by truly independent voting. From the running public’s nominations and votes we create the definitive lists for all runners to consult for their every need – Races, Shoes, Technology, Literature, Clothes, Nutrition, Communities, Charities and more.

The first round of voting ends on November 30th. Help us make it onto the shortlist.

We are truly delighted that we have been nominated as best online community and really hope you will show your support for us by taking two minutes to vote

Don’t make us use our “We didn’t want the award anyway” Oscar faces on the night.

Thanks for your support!
