Web Resources for Centurions
There are a number of key web based statistics sites available to the ultra walking community. These include
AURA Results website
Ultra Marathon Walk Stats website from Deutsche Ultramarathon Vereinigung, the ultimate ultra run stats website.This branch contains walk results - still in early stages of development but looks promising.
My Australian Walk Result website which contains all local racewalking and ultra walking results
The wonderful British results website – search on any athlete and find their profile, PBs, race results, etc
The recently formed Belgian Walking Assn website contains ranking lists for many different ultra walk distances and lots more besides
The Dutch Walking Database for all things ultradistance walking in Europe. What a site!
I am sure most readers have used wikipedia at one time or another. But did you know this site contains quite a bit of ultra distance walking information.
Firsly, there are the links to pedestianism of the nineteenth century and to Capt Robert Barclay, the most famous of the early pedestrians.
Then moving into the twentieth century, there is the dedicated page to Centurion walking and the page on Tommy Hammond, one of the founding members of the centurion movement
Then there are lots of links on more recent famous ultradistance walkers (and runners), including one for Sandra Brown
And that is probably just the tip of the iceberg. Let me know of others. It would be good to build up a more extensive picture of what is out there.
