Welcome everyone to the new Google-Maps driven Beyond Marathon website. The site features 190 (and growing daily) ultra distance events all over the world. This site contains facts, and figures which will help you decide which event is right for you. Key to the site is it’s Facebook page, where new additions to the site will be announced. Be sure to ”like” us, and ensure you are kept up to date with the latest news.
You are welcome to post event reviews under each event, and also to send in any photo’s. A new feature that we are including, are event route maps which you can view on this website, or download to view in Google Earth.
If you are a GPS user, can convert Google Earth files for use on your GPS device using free utilities such as GPSU. We have put up as many event maps that we have right now. If you have a route map for an event we feature, and you don’t see it on the events’ page, then please submit it and we’ll get it included. If you are a race organiser and you don’t see your event, then please email us and we’ll do our best to get it included as soon as possible.
The site features a really useful day by day, month by month calendar, where you can (see and browse to) every event that is featured on the site. If you can also find events by name (even by typing just a word or too) in the search bar.
Many more events, news-features and more website functionality are going to be added, as well as some competitions and giveaways. Keep checking back.

26 miles just isn’t enough is it?
