Product Description

As you read this, something big is taking place. It's happening throughout the world, in places as different as the outback of Australia, the Himalayas of Nepal, and the South Pole. It's happending in oceans, lakes and rivers. It's happening in the mountains, the desert, and the plains. It's probably even happening in your own backyard. What is it? Well, if you've ever pushed yourself to the limit - gone faster, farther, longer, or harder than you ever thought possible - you know exactly what it is. It has nothing to do with money. It has nothing to do with fame. It's all about breaking boundaries - going that extra mile, so to speak. In moder-day lingo, it's all about "ultra". Take what is ordinary say, a 10 mile run and make it extremely unordinary, ading to the run a 30 mile bike ride, 6 miles of cross-country skiing, and 4 miles of snowshoeing, all at an elevation of 10,000 feet. They turn a simple mountain bike race into a twenty-four hour test of endurance to see who can ride the farthest.
