Ultrarunning World was conceived as a UK and Ireland news and events website by Abichal Sherrington in 2007 when the first version of Issue 1 of Ultrarunning World Magazine was produced. Subsequent issues were published starting in 20210. A re-launch in 2017 saw the magazine published on average bi-monthly and free online.
The articles featured in the magazine, mainly race recaps, come from a wide variety of international sources, mostly by ultrarunners, race directors and crew and occasional features by writers and sports journalists. The magazine now has its own website.
