New Multiday and Ultramarathon Calendar

By Abichal @Multidays

New Multiday and Ultramarathon CalendarWe are very happy to announce a new feature on the Multidays.com – The Multiday and Ultramarathon Calendar. This comes as a sortable table that contains all the previously separate categories into one easy to see list. This will enable site editors to update the table quicker.

Currently we are at the beta stage of testing…

The calendar does not contain races whose dates have not been published yet. (Its hard to distinguish those entries from entries that I have yet to include or those that I am unaware of…)

The list is not a comprehensive list of every ultra. Every day I start exploring I discover new races and have new ideas. Today for example I decided to start including the UTMB qualifying points awarded by various races and that will be a more complete list as time goes by.

Its interesting to discover how many ultras are currently taking place in the world and I have to thank various resources that I have used in compiling this list.

In particular Keith Godden’s www.ultramarathonrunning.com is a great place for new races and as I speak he has just added a new race – the Mogollon Monster 100 “More Bigfoot folklore?  You bet it is but certainly makes you think a little at 3am in the dark, deep forest not quite sure if that was a herd of elk or…something else…”

The D.U.V. is also a great resource and with Google translation tools it opens up hitherto inaccessible realms. Thank God for the internets.

Anyway, you can see the new feature at: The Multiday and Ultramarathon Calendar 2012

Whilst I’m here I have to admit the magazine has been on hold whilst I got to grips with the calendar and other personal circumstances, so now hopefully I will make progress on the much delayed Issue 6 of Ultrarunning World.

Best wishes,

Abichal
