Multiday Running

Multidays is a resource that supports multiday and ultrarunning projects.

What is a multiday race

A multiday race is an ultramarathon that takes place over several days. Multiday races are a test of a runners' endurance, skill with pacing, and ability to recover from the stress of constantly moving. The competitors run with minimal sleep, all the while trying to accumulate as many miles as possible. These events stretch upwards from 24 (like the Self-Transcendence 12/24 Basel race) and 48 hour races such as the Surgères 48 hour race.

Multidays By Time

The standard time-frame is the six day race, the most famous being Colac Six Day Race in Australia and the Sri Chinmoy Six-Day Race in New York and of course the Marathon des Sables. Other race time-frames exist as well as do events based on distance, the longest certified race being the Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race in New York.

Multidays By Distance

Trans-national events exist like the Trans-Am, Deutschlandlauf and the Transe Gaule as well as point to point and stage events and there is a TransEurope footrace planned for 2012.

Since the 1980's multiday running has enjoyed a rennaissance as has ultrarunning as a whole. Despite the amount of time required to complete these events, these races are a tremendous opportunity to discover one's capacity, to test one's limits and to transcend perceived difficulties and learn to operate most efficiently within a given environment.
