Some exciting news: I've got a lovely new sponsor in the form of ULTRAmarathonRunningStore.com. 

It's the retail division of the very successful online resource centre ultramarathonrunning.com and - as you may have worked out - specialises in ultra running products, clothing, gear and equipment.  Everything has been designed with the long distance athlete in mind and focuses on the specific needs and requirements of trail and ultra runners.

The products include running backpacks, race vests, waist bags, waist belts, hydration bottles, waist packs, handheld bottles and running shorts with patented mesh pockets.  The ULTRAmarathonRunningStore is the exclusive UK supplier/distributor of ultra-specific products from  innovative manufacturers UltrAspire and RaceReady.

Sonic spent months trying to find a pair of shorts with two pockets - and here's whole range of them!

Current West Highland Way record-holder, Terry Conway wore the UltrAspire SPRY pack and carried two RACE handhelds when he smashed the course record on Saturday.  How's that for celebrity endoresement?

I will be reviewing some of the products over the next couple of months, but please visit ULTRAmarathonRunningStore in the meantime. You also find (and "like") them on Facebook

Love that shop - had a look t'other day and was drooling over various things! Lucky you - another fab sponsor - although luck has nothing to do with it - you work ruddy hard at your running and it's only what you deserve!

Been using the Race Ready shorts for a couple of years now and would recommend them.
