Hi

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?

cheers

The Nomad near Long Eaton has a 50k and a 50 mile option, and seems very friendly.

Sandstone Trail - Whitchurch to Frodsham (Cheshire), 33 miles, options for walkers as well as runners. Sold out for this year, and sells out very very rapidly (all 125 runner places were gone by 9:30am on the day it went live), but in terms of where you are located it's spot on between Lancs and S Mids. Very friendly, coach from the finish to the start, pie and peas at the finsh, nice route and not overly taxing.
