Be inspired by reports on recent races by our intrepid runners: we go the distance!



The first UTMB in Oman was a challenge for every participant, including the intrepid Kerry Sutton

Oman by UTMB, a race of 134 kms with 7,800m elevation was dubbed ‘the beast’ and, as many ultras claim to be, the ‘world’s toughest ultra’. The fact that of the 326 who started, only 135 reached the finish in Al Hamra before the 44- hour cut off is testament to this. It’s certainly one of the toughest races any of our Women’s Running tribe have ever undertaken – and that’s saying something.

The original UTMB in the Alps, and from where this race has its origins, leads competitors over peaks and through valleys along welltrodden paths shaped by years of use. By contrast, Oman by UTMB runners traverse exposed ridges, run through ancient villages and ascend the 2,200m Jebel Al Akhdar “the Green Mountain”. The entire route is steeped in natural beauty.

About Women’s Running

We’ve taken a running jump into spring with our March issue, which is packed with inspirational ideas on how to go further, get fitter and run faster now that the worst of the cold weather is behind us. We’ve been out on the trails discovering new ways we can inject a bit of wild into our running: from fastpacking to swimruns there are plenty of ways to embrace your inner child and find new ways to love our beloved running. And if that wan’t enough to inspire you to leave the tarmac behind, read our interview with Emily Scott: last summer she climbed 282 Munros (that’s a mountain to the non-Scottish among you) unsupported, in one continuous round. And she’s on the lookout for her next adventure! We’ve also included the Big One: your training guide to getting round a marathon in tip top shape – whether it’s your first marathon, or simply your latest stab at a PB, we’ve got the plan to give you a strong finish. Our extended workout this issue focuses on arms: strong arms are vital for a strong stride, so we’re working on getting rock-hard triceps and biceps to pump our legs. And while we know that running is good for ourselves, did you know you could help others by putting one foot in front of the other? We investigate England Athletic’s Mental Health Champions campaign to support good mental wellbeing through running, and find out how we can get involved at a local level.
