I'm looking for recommendations for a "short" Ultra say 30 to 40 miles ish, trail rather than real off road ideally and suited for beginners. I reckon a bit of walking will be needed to keep us together as want to enter as a family event. Mid year sometime. Pretty relaxed with location but I'm Lancashire and fellow runner is South Midlands.
Separately I'd like to dip my toe into multi day, 2 or 3 days, A bit more on the wild side. Not one of these 25 miles a day over 2 days with entertainment at a Butlins type mid race stopover. More the bivvy bag in the hills. A mini Cape Wrath Ultra?
