Are you an aspiring ultramarathoner and have visions of competing on the world stage, or even gaining points to become a national series winner? The only way you can do this is through becoming a member of the ACU, then all those ultra events you enter and place in will allow you to have those points tallied and it then becomes official.

The next World Championships that will be coming up is the World Trail in Portugal in June. Team selection is taking place as we speak and will be announced shortly.

Don’t miss your chance at that type of representation ... join the ACU (if you haven’t done so already) and don't forget to renew if expired.

There are many events in Canada that allow you to gain those points. Simply visit and look at the “National Championships” calendar to see the different events listed.
