About Cockbain Events Ltd

 

Having completed ultramarathons all over the world www.markcockbain.com and I wanted to create some 'extremely hard to achieve' challenges here in the UK. Low key, tough, back to basics events designed for the 'hardened' experienced ultra runner, or those willing to push that bit further.............Mark Cockbain.
