Ultra Clubs and Ultra Resources
April 22, 2011 by Bryon Powell · 7 Comments
This is a calm before the storm, folks. I’ve spent the day (and a few years) setting up next week’s content and, man, is it gonna be awesome. For the moment, I want to highlight another two additions I’ve made to iRunFar ahead of the book launch.
Ultrarunning Resources Page
First off, there’s a new ultrarunning resources page. This page highlights a few of the very best ultramarathon resources. If you’ve been running ultras, chances are you know most of the listed websites and have heard of the listed magazines. That’s good, as this first portion of the page is intended to introduce newbies to the classics as well as a few of iRunFar’s best ultra-related articles.
The second portion of the ultrarunning resources page is dedicated to supplementing Relentless Forward Progress. There were numerous places in the book where I wanted to include more information, but where it was inappropriate to do so. In such cases, I included a note that more information could be found on this new page. In addition, I made such book-to-website references for constantly changing subjects, such as ultrarunning blogs and ultrarunning clubs, that would be otherwise impossible to update in a book.
Ultrarunning Clubs Page
Speaking of ultrarunning clubs, I created an entirely new ultrarunning clubs page to support the book. I rounded up a solid list of clubs from numerous resources here on iRunFar. Some of the clubs are specifically ultrarunning clubs, while I included other clubs that I believed have solid ultrarunning contingents. Please take a look at the list with the ultra-friendly clubs you know in mind and drop a comment here if you’ve got a club you think should be added.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoy what I’ve been working on and are looking forward to next week!
