The organiser of the Erkrath 6 day, Sigi Bullig said that the race will be taking a rest for a while whilst they have other adventures including a 48 hour race in 2010. There are very few 48 hour races taking place in the world at this time so this will be a great opportunity for those not fortunate enough to get invited to Surgeres.
The 1st International 48-hour in Cologne will be run by the community of the Deutsch Ultramarathon Vereinigung eV (LG DUV) headed by Wolfgang Olbrich and Siegfried Bullig.
Is a 400 m Tartan track at Netcologne Stadium in the Sports University Cologne, Carl-Diem-Weg 4, 50933 Cologne, Germany. The route is closed during the entire period of the race and is lit at night.
Event is limited to 50 runners and is filling fast and will be sold out long before the deadline of June 2010.
Details of the event which will take place 23-25th July next year are available on the DUV website:
