As many of you know, in addition to running Marathons (26.2 miles) I also run Ultra Marathons which is any distance longer than a Marathon. My main love has been the 24 hour track race around a 400 metre athletic track. I have in fact taken part on fifteen of these races and, up to 2017, organised two such events.
Following the continued success of the Crawley A.I.M. charity 6 and 12 hour race I decided to incorporate a 24 hour race for 2017 so renamed the event the Freedom Leisure British Ultrafest.
It took place on the 1st and 2nd of April and was a great success with 10 runners completing over 100 miles in the inaugural 24 hour race.
As in previous years I was able, thanks to the generosity of the sponsors, to donate £1000 to Advance International Ministries.
