The Running Bug Ultra

The Running Bug, home of my ‘Aim High, Anything Is Possible‘ blog, are turning their hand to putting on events. Entry is now open for ‘The Running Bug European Ultra‘ on 20th September 2013 in the Algarve, Portugal.

Covering 127km in 3 stages in temperatures of up to 35 degrees, the race offers a great opportunity for people to step up to ultra distance and/or to step up to multi day events, the latter of which being something that I myself have yet to do.

The race starts near the old Moorish capital of the Algarve, summits the highest point in the Algarve (2970ft) and then finishes at Europe’s most South Westerly point.

Sounds like I really need to convince The Running Bug that they need to send one of their bloggers on an all expenses paid trip to participate in and cover the event. I wonder who that should be – ahem!
