HAd never heard of Eleanor Adams...what a star, amazing.
Not heard of 5, 6 and 7 before... but can't argue with the others from what I know of them.
Nice to see the media-whore Dean Karnazes not in the list, far greater runners than him across the years
I dont know how you define 'ultra' in this case, but one of the greatest endurance/ultra runners has to Joss Naylor surely?
Or is fell-running a bit too-off-the-wall???
Joss Naylor was the name that sprang to my mind before I looked at the list. I guess you are right and fell running is a bit to off the wall. 70 peaks at the age of 70 is one mean achievement in itself.
An inspiration for my (failed) foray into ultra running.
Must ask her next time I see her, where did I go wrong??
I will always remember Gran (with understatement) saying she knew a young lady from the chapel who "does a bit of running."
very good muzzy.
i think globally joss loses out a little.. would be interesting to construct a UK list.
or maybe a RW one.. then i might actually feature!
of to look now
I see your point fat buddah
