Ultra Great Britain 200 Mile Ultramarathon has been run from Southport

THE Ultra Great Britain 200 Mile Ultra-Marathon set off from Southport, at 6am, on Saturday 20 August 2016. Well forget the Olympic Marathon, this is a Unique 200+ mile Ultra-Marathon that follows the Trans-Pennine Trail. It covers a variety of terrain over the Pennines and combines a mixture of natural trail and urban trail. The event uses Live Online GPS Tracking of all taking part, to ensure no cheating takes place; plus check points along the way. In the past between 100 to 249 runners took part in the race. This year the number of participants was capped at 200. The event attracted huge attention in the running world, with participants, both male and female, some coming from as far as Singapore to take part! Sadly, many locals, despite the press publication, did not realise this event was being started from Southport, but the early start probably did not help either. These are a few photographs taken of them setting up on Friday Night. To find out more about these international Ultramarathons visit:- UltraMarathonRunning.Com  and for this race go to:- RunUltra.Co.UK or follow them on both:- Facebook and Twitter.  Congratulations to all who took part in this years event!
