February 2, 2002: Ultramarathon World Back Online

The following Press Release was issued by David Blaikie, editor of the ULTRAMARATHON WORLD website, on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2002.

ULTRAMARATHON WORLD is the leading global information website for Ultra Distance Footracing.  The website recently disappeared without explanation by the website host.

*           *            *              *           *

Ultramarathon World is back with a new and better web site.

Effective immediately, please change your 'personal bookmarks' and 'any web page links' you may have to the following:

Eliminate ALL LINKs to the old address. The original site was destroyed (without explanation) by my former web provider on Dec. 20.

Also, please ignore any internet search engine references to the old site. None of the old files exist at that address any longer.


Original Ultramarathon World files are gradually being transferred to the new site.


My e-mail address will also change shortly, although this one will remain valid for several weeks. Look for a new e-mail address in the new site in the next few days.

My thanks to all readers who expressed their support and and appreciation during the period when Ultramarathon World was down. The new site has many improvements, including a search engine, and more will be added as I get time.

Please be patient while I get it all up to speed, and please continue to send news and contributions as always.

Best wishes to all,
David Blaikie
