There is always a lot of good discussion on all matters to do with Australian Ultramarathons on the CoolRunning website eg races, training, diets, news etc. It is a good resource to ask questions and opinions.
It is worthwhile pointing out that linking to them from the AURA website does not mean that any information you read there is correct or authorised by AURA. There are many opinions and not all of them are correct!
