The Montane Spine race is a 268 mile race along the Pennine Way and although originally a Winter event now also takes place in the Summer. Sharon Gayter, perhaps Britain’s top women’s multiday runner at the moment, shares her experience in the Spine race earlier this year.
Adam Rykala lives in South Wales with the Brecon Beacons on his doorstep. Adam wrote about his race in the Black Mountains coming out of Lockdown.
Just across the Channel in South Limburg in the Netherlands Willem Mucher invites us to his event, the Helipad Ultra which has a range of different distance options fromm 55k to 200km in the beautiful Dutch countryside.
We feature the second part of Harmony Waite‘s epic tale of running the Irrational S.O.U.T.H. 200 Mile Race in Australia, one of a series of 200 miler’s that introduce ultrarunners to multidays.

Cat Roberts ran the Mendip Marauder, 50 miles through the Mendip Hills in Somerset, organised by Albion Running, one of a series of challenging events in the West Country.

Cath Wallis is another Australian inspiration who encourages everyone to discover what they are actually capable of and practices her philosophy in the field of deeds.

We bring the magazine to a close with an article filled with essential ideas for crews or handlers from Sarah Smith, the Capital Backyard Ultra RD and crew to her record setting partner, Olivier Leblond. Crewing is underrated until you have one or need one and then it becomes clear how much extra mileage a runner can find with the perfect support. Many thanks to Sarah for sharing this article and thanks to all the contributors who continue to help us in our own Self-Transcendence.
