Be it doping in sport, hot topics like Caster Semenya or Oscar Pistorius, or the dehydration myth, we try to translate the science behind sports and sports performance.

Planet Ultramarathon blog

We're always on the lookout for blogs that relate to what we write about, whether it be the front-end (news, events), the back-end (the science and training) or the off-the-wall humour (like Half-Fast).

And this blog, Planet Ultramarathon (the name tells you everything!), is a goodie for anything ultra-marathon related. Run by Phil from the greatly named "Wagga Wagga" in Australia, it's a pretty comprehensive offering for the Ultra-Marathon world, so check it out. And Phil gave us a bit of a boost, so we're happy to return the favour!
