About Us

About Us: Welcome to Ultramarathon Central

Welcome to Ultramarathon Central, your ultimate resource for all things ultra running. Our founder, Mathew Stuckey, started this platform with a simple mission: to create a community for ultra runners who share his passion for pushing the limits of what’s possible.

Meet Our Founder: Mathew Stuckey

As a seasoned runner and cyclist, Mathew has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. He has taken on some of the most challenging ultra running events, including 50km and 100km races, timed and endurance events, and even the UK’s longest triathlon. Through his journey, he has learned the importance of mental and physical preparation, the value of proper gear, and the power of community support.

Our Mission: Empowering Your Ultra Running Journey

At Ultramarathon Central, we strive to bring all of these elements together to support and inspire others on their ultra running journey. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, our goal is to provide you with the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals and have fun in the process.

What We Offer: Resources and Community

Our website features training tips, gear reviews, race information, and a community where you can hear from like-minded individuals from all over the world. We believe that through sharing our experiences and supporting each other, we can all achieve more and reach new levels of personal fulfilment.
