ISSUE 09

 

In ULTRA Issue 09 legendary ultra runner Mimi Anderson describes her journey across North America in an attempt to break the world record for the crossing, a wonderful and frank account of adversity, triumph, success and failure, and how she dealt with each.

We remain in the US with terminal cancer sufferer Mark Thornberry as he takes on yet another phenomenal challenge with the Javelina Jundred, before crossing the Pyrénées with ULTRA regular Guillaume Arthus. Back at home we reveal the best ultra runners and performances of 2017 with the new-look ULTRA awards, and travel from Scotland through to the midlands with three runners on the inaugural Deadwater race before running the canals and mountains of the UK with some of our brightest runners and our finest races.
