A big thank you to everyone who nominated a blogger for our Blogger Award. After much deliberation, and it was a very daunting task, we have chosen the shortlist for the RunUltra Blogger Award for 2018.  Please use the hashtag #RunUltraBlog18 to spread the word.

We received over a hundred  bloggers nominated from every corner of the globe. Many congratulations to all those who made the list.

The quality, dedication and passion for ultra marathons and trail running shines through brightly in much of the writing from the bloggers that you nominated.

Consistency
Quality of Imagery
Quality of Copy
Creativity

We have a total of 64 names on our shortlist (that’s how difficult it was, as we did not want to exclude some great blogs), given the very high standard of nominations.
