Just a quick blog to let you know about a couple of exciting new events that we are soon going to confirm on the website!

Firstly, as part of a Festival of Running taking place at Whirlow Hall Farm, Sheffield on the 25th and 26th August 2012. Eight Point Two are putting on (in conjunction  with Accelerate) a 12 mile and 55 mile trail race. The course is currently being approved and when we have the green light we will let you know.

The 55 mile Ultra which we are going to call (something like) the Ultra Tour de la Peak District will have both individuals and relay options on the 55 mile course! Watch this space for details.

Secondly, as well as the 5 races we are putting on for Marie Curie in May we have just had the go ahead for a new race on behalf of the Ronald Mc Donald Housing Charity to put on a new race on the 20th May 2012. The race will be held in and around the grounds of Alton Towers. For those of you who remember we put on a race here about 4 years ago and its a tough course being suprisingly hilly. Again, watch this space for details!
