The 2012 UK Ultra Runners of the Year are now official. The Winners are listed below and full results can be found on Runners of the Year tab on the top of this page. Votes had been placed by the Ultra Community via the poll page, email and facebook over the last 7weeks. Head over to http://www.facebook.com/ukUROC to view the discussion board page. For 2013 this will move to a stand alone website dedicated to highlighting the incredible performances that home based UK athletes continuously turn in week after week. More categories will be added to make sure the incredible stories and performances from the non-elite end of the field are recognised. The draw to win Compressport Gear for a lucky voter will take a place on the 25th November after CenturionRunning's Winter 100 race.
A special thanks goes out to all the sponsors that supported the event in its first year. Without the commitment from them, a legitimate poll could have been made. With them we have seen over 1000 unique votes- beyond expectations. Lets make this 2000 next year!
