I've entered this one and am looking forward to it. Can anyone tell me what it's like to navigate? Are there plenty of way marks?
Never run an event where i've needed to navigate but i'm not bad with a map. Just a bit concerned because I don't know the route at all.
Dill, not hard to navigate at all. You get a comprehensive guide book given to you at the start and each page covers about a 3-5 mile section of the route. The guide book is more than sufficient!
Cracking event, im doing it again this year! Are you local Dill?
Hi Mr F
No i'm not local at all! I'm from Maidstone so the North Downs are my training ground. I just liked the look of this one. Good reviews, good price and a chance to take in a different part of the country.
Good to hear it's pretty easy to get round. Some of trails round my way are really poorly marked so I often get lost.
I take it you enjoyed it last year? What sort of time did you do? I'm guessing i'll take about 8 hours.
Loved it. A few sections not too scenic, but on the whole its all over fields and through woodland.
I was more around 9hrs last year, but we were going slow! Intend putting my feet down a bit this year, so more likely to be around the 8hr mark too!
Any typical times for Walkers ?
Just curious for next year.
a real variety, im sure the website will give last years results.
hardly done any training for this years but its such a relaxed event im not in the least bit bothered, will just be a cracking day out!
unless we get a clear dry week.. expect a fair bit of mud.
ive done it in road shoes on dryer years but you might want something with a bit more grip / protection.
Looks like i migth have to give this a go.
Will be a good test of the achilles recovery, and a nice last long run for London
You running it this year Ed?
*goes looking for the online entry*
maybe.... maybe not
ran part of the bretford to brinklow section last thursday as part of my long run, the previous week i'd cut it out due to the muddiness of the other trails i'd been on. it's still very very muddy, hopefully this weekend will have helped.
(ask me again on thursday)
