About Cockbain Events

Having completed ultramarathons all over the world www.markcockbain.com 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 ultrarunner, or those willing to push that bit further......Mark Cockbain
