Ultra Marathons are distance events which are even longer than the marathon distance of 26.2. Two of the most common distances for ultra marathons are 50 miles and 100 miles. Training for these events can be a grueling process. However, despite the difficulty of this training process there are many new runners who opt to compete in ultra marathon events each year and the number of participants in these races continue to grow at a rapid pace.

We pride ourselves in putting on premiere Ultra Marathon Events in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Our Bluffton, Hilton Head and Beaufort based race calendar consist of 50K, 50 Mile and 24 Hour Events.   We continue to grow the sport of Ultra Running in the Lowcountry through the increased availability of races and exposure of longer events here in the Lowcountry.


We are thrilled to announce our 2014 Ultra Sponsor as The Foot Store located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, has a new approach to foot care. It is more than a traditional retail shoe store.Combining 30 years experience in physical therapy, athletic training, pedorthics and retail, Carolyn and staff offer their expertise in providing the best service to each customer.


                                             


The skilled staff at The Foot Store offer expert personal assistance for each customer. Our goal is to educate each customer about shoes, anatomy, prevention of foot pain and associated problems while providing excellent service. Based on sound professional advice, customers are then able to make intelligent decisions concerning footwear and orthotics.
 
The draw to ultra marathon events may be difficult for many to understand. Even runners who run for exercise, fun and even compete in shorter distance events often have a difficult time understanding why runners would be drawn to the extreme events which require the runner to complete distance in excess of 26.2 miles. Participating and completing these events give runners a great sense of accomplishment.

Other runners are drawn to ultra marathon events to break out of what they consider to be a training rut. Training for an ultra marathon is certainly a unique situation and regardless of the type of events the runner was participating in already, he will likely have to alter his training regimen significantly to properly prepare for an ultra marathon.

We will continue to grow the sport of ultra marathon running in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and look forward to seeing you cross the finish line!!!


See you on trail-
