Since this section is a shambles and hasn't been updated for
nearly a year, I recomend checking out either the front page of multidays.com
or the blog on multiday running for ultra and multiday news and also
the 24 hour pages for relevant news in that field.

So if you want to meet with him, run a stage, help crew or can give
him a bed for the night... Please call that number. Between 8 AM and

The Arrowhead Ultra is taking place at the moment and last weekend
saw two events, The Paul Selby 12/24 in South Africa and the Houston

To Be A Runner
Try to be a runner, and try all the time to surpass and go beyond all
that is bothering you and standing in your way. Be a real runner so
that ignorance, limitation and imperfection will all drop far behind
you in the race.
People have always been running around. If it wasnt chasing down locomotive
food then running after thieves has been an option to man since he first
mastered the two legged position. Very little has changed in the last
20,000 years except footware and speed and of course reasons why we
run. It is generally agreed that exercise can promote a healthier body
if care and understanding are utilised. Just as a tool gets worn in
to the job at hand so eventually does the body quit whining and begin
to enjoy the freedom and the fresh air though its true in our security
conscious world, more and more people turn to the treadmill to get their
miles in. Recently a new world record for 24 hour treadmill run has
been set by Tony Mangan 216.37 kms. It wasnt until the 1800's that long
distance running or walking began to attract the eyes of serious athletes.
