ULTRA is the longest-running printed magazine in Europe dedicated to the sport of ultrarunning. Established in 2015, it has served the UK’s ultra community ever since.
In Issue 18 ultrarunning historian Andy Milroy continues his series of articles about our sport’s legacy with a fascinating look at the first female winner of the Comrades Marathon, a Brit who hailed from Trowbridge over 100 years ago.
Elsewhere Scandinavian runner Pernilla Otto talks about her recent six-day treadmill world record, while ULTRA regular Kevin Webber takes in The Last Secret of Bhutan.
Another regular, outdoor gear expert Mike Parsons (Karrimor, founder of OMM) takes a look at the sustainable journey of our clothing, while the Secret Ultrarunner has some strong opinions about declining race numbers particularly for smaller low-key races.
The amazing Eoin Keith shows us what a Spine-winning (amongst other gongs) backpack looks like, along with its contents and his favourite must-carry gear, while new regular columnist Tim Laney looks at the pitfalls in relying on technology to get you through a race.
For more inspiration we have features on both Cape Wrath Ultra and Dragon’s Back Race, Emma Harrison running the Dolomites, Jo Kemp running all the Dartmoor Tors, and Lily Canter takes on Ultra-X Tanzania. All in all, a must-have for ultrarunners everywhere.
Created, printed and bound in the UK. We think it’s the best ultrarunning magazine in the world. Why not find out for yourself?
