Pictures from British Ultra on Islay and Jura

Back in November I wrote about the British Ultra (Official British Ultra website), which took place on Islay and Jura over the last week. I found a few bloggers who were planning to participate and already back then was hoping to see a few pictures and reports from the event. Early in May I noticed a Flickr discussion by Duncan, mentioning he was off to Islay (and Jura) soon to take pictures of the event. Today he posted his pictures from Islay and Jura, some really amazing pictures among them:

For a small selection you might want to start with the British Ultra Flickr set. I really like this view Loch Tarbert on Jura over to Colonsay and this sunset from Feolin on Jura with Caol Ila in the distance. The orange glow of the tents looks interesting as well. For action shots how about this one of some runners with the Paps of Jura behind them? Now those 27 pictures are far from all he took. For many many many more head over to Tri-Photos. On this site you'll find Pre Race pictures followed by pictures from every single day: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5 and Day 6. As of writing this pictures from the awards dinner are still to follow.

Doing a bit of searching on the interweb I also found a few blog entries and other sites mentioning the British Ultra:

Graham Kelly went to Jura for the Jura Hill Race, but in his entry Jura ...and a whisky kiss also mentions the British Ultra.

James has only written about the British Ultra - Admin Day in his blog so far, I guess he'll write an update once he has recovered. I'll be watching James MDS blog over the next few days for an update.

SleepMonster has some race reports as well as a picture gallery. Some of it looks incomplete as of writing this, I guess further updates will follow.

And finally the results: Assuming they are complete and I read the race results correctly Stuart Crispin won the race in 23 hours and 50 minutes with Tatty Mackenzie-Clarke the best female runner at 31h 58m. Congratulations!
