Centurion Running Events are organised by James Elson & Alex Black. Our objective is to put on runner orientated trail races. We have taken the things we liked from races we have been fortunate enough to run ourselves and added them to the national trails we love. Our aim is to provide the maximum level of support we can for runners over race weekend on the resources we have available.
Our races all contain the same basic elements. 50 or 100 miles non-stop and on foot. 14 - 16 fully stocked aid stations over 100 miles (7 over 50), friendly and hugely enthusiastic volunteers and staff and unparalleled levels of medical support on hand at all times throughout the race.
We held our first event in August 2011 on the North Downs Way and after some wonderful feedback, we set about designing courses and events that gave runners the opportunity to run some of the most scenic and challenging trails in the UK in a fully supported race format where both racing and finishing are encouraged in equal measures. Out of those elements were borne the 4 x 100 milers comprising the Grand Slam, the 2 x 50 milers and the Piece of String Fun Run, on which James Adams another UK based ultrarunner has been involved in equal measure.
The coaching services we provide are suited to runners of all abilities. The store is steadily growing to include more of the products we trust in and use ourselves. Check back regularly as things are evolving all the time.
Most of all we pride ourselves on conveying the information runners need in order to adequately prepare for and eventually to race to the best of their ability and in the safest possible way. Please email us with any feedback or queries and we will always come back to you.
