Joanne Lucking pops in to chat about her love of ultra running. Since taking up long distance running in 2019 she has tackled some seriously long events that really are remarkable.

From 1 day events, virtual, multi-day and even some volunteering at major ultra events, Joanne really is on another level completely. Running, run-walking, 35miles to 268 miles - it doesn't matter - at these distances it's all about getting the job job. Have you got what it takes? There's an ultra race for everyone!
