ULTRA is a list dedicated to the sport of ultrarunning. By
"ultrarunning" we mean running of a distance longer than a
marathon in distance or time.
The list will concentrate on matters related to ultrarunning.
However, we recognize that the members of the ultrarunning
community cover a wide spectrum. Some are interested solely
in training and racing information, techniques and experiences.
Others enjoy the more 'peripheral' areas of the sport, from
ultra prose or poetry to descriptions of interesting people or
scenery seen during a run or race. All those people, and all
those ultra topics and many others, are welcome here.
The list will NOT be moderated, however flaming, SPAM and
advertising (other than race announcements) are not allowed.
