Ultra Distance Challenges
If you're looking for inspiration and information for your next ultra challenge then this is the place to be. This page contains details of ultra challenges completed by CFR members - mostly the kind you organise yourself and do solo or with friends, plus some ultra races. So if you need any further information or advice, you'll know who to ask!

If you complete one of these ultras or even one not listed then it would be great if you could provide the details so they can be added.
