What ultrarunners had to say about the 2017 season

Here are just some of the reviews of our races, by those that have done them.


Alex Nancolas: 5* Great no fuss ultras run just north of Leeds with great routes and scenery

Euan Clark: 5* The Welcome Ultra was my first Ultra and the bar has been set really high by Ryk and Bev, the course was really good (although ive never seen so much mud in all my life!), would love to do it again in drier conditions! The organisation was absolutely perfect, course was really well taped, marshals were all fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us at each stop. We’ll be keeping an eye on Punk Panthers other events and we’ll definitely be back to do more. First Class event thank you!

Ged Futter:  5* A fantastic ultra, amazing route, very well marked and great marshals. Next up A Bridge too Far!

Vanessa Ford: 5* Brilliant event, well organised, excellent marshalling and great route marking/instructions. Amazing course, a real challenge! Lots of food at the end and well looked after! A lot of work clearly went into the event, well done all.

Louise Clark: 5* Fantastic well organised event, course marking superb, challenging route, plenty of aid stations, encouraging marshals and a hot meal at the end. Transport back to the start too. What more could you want.

Mal Dunn: 5* Brilliant ! Well organised and well marked route! .. the marshals were outstanding !

Paul Hamer: 5* Great initial run to the series yesterday ~ Welcome Ultra. Not for the faint hearted with some pretty tough mud to get through. Top tip, have the correct footwear!

Well organised, great marshalls and venues. Lovely RD’s ~ Ryk & Bev.

Highly recommended to the novice and the elite runners alike. Looking forward to the next race in the series ���

High Life Ultra to be part of Todmorden Harriers Ultra Championship 2018.

Hi Ryk,
I’m thrilled that we have included the High Life Ultra as one of the seven races in our 2018 Todmorden Harriers Ultra Championship. I really wanted to put one of your races in this time, and The High Life fitted the bill perfectly as it has a choice of distances and falls at the perfect time of the year to compliment the other races, and doesn’t clash with any of the British or English Championship races.
I hope very much I will be able to do the race myself as I will be defending my title!
Look forward to meeting you
