I’m considering doing an ultramarathon – has anyone here ever done one? If so how tough was it?

Are these the ones that are 100km? If so my friend did a couple of them in NZ - he managed to complete it but his knees were wrecked for some time afterwards!

Yeah, they can be anything above a standard marathon. The Marathon Des Sables is 156 miles and the Badwater Ultramarathon is 126 miles (across Death Valley!). Some are even longer!

Wow! Let us know how it goes if you decide to do it.
