Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned veteran wanting a fun group to train with, we welcome you to the UltraLadies' runs and best of all, the runs are free! We are a come-and-go-as-you-wish ultra running group under the guidance of Ultra-Mama Nancy Shura-Dervin. We've been together since 1995. We are primarily a women's training group, but also welcome UltraLadies'Men. We are especially supportive of new ultra runners who are welcome from April to August each year to train for the Bulldog 50K as their first ultra running experience. Many of our runners have gone on to complete 50-mile and 100-mile endurance events. The UltraLadies also provide a resource of experienced pacers/crew for our longer distance ultra running members.
