Looking at doing this next year as my first ultra, how undulating is the course? and any tips on training etc for it.

thinking about doing this as well as my first ultra bit concerned about the weather in feb as well

I can put up with most weather, just don't like snow or ice. Think i might just bite the bullet and enter

I did this as my first Ultra this year, the course was along coastal roads on the Llanelli waterfront for the first maybe 12 miles then an uphill section to around 17, the turnaround was at 21 miles then back to the coastal route. Support was really good with bag drops etc, and bike Marshalls, the course was very well marked. The uphill turns into a very welcome downhill from about 23 - 30,  I'd recommend it, I signed up again as soon as I possibly could despite the extra three miles and the 300 mile trip

Good, I will be doing Liverbird this year in Dec/Jan hopefully the double and then will do Gloucester in late Jan - enjoyed that one last year, and if there's a 50k I might be tempted

I'm not thinking about times at all this year, just concentrating on staying injury free and getting around, 50k would take me 5:20ish right now

thanks EG, have gone and entered. Will probably be back for advice on food other than gels!

Thanks for selling the race EG, will be even better next year, shame I have to do it in February but am going to be busy in March

Hi Matt looking forward to it, have a couple more under the belt so far this year, and after March I will avoid the 4 hour drive home after the run, and maybe stay a second night next time, did the Wall last week and enjoying the longer challenge now, here's to staying injury free

Hi Shades, you will get an email as soons as your entry is confirmed. Who did you book through?

EG definitely stay around for the post race high jinks  I would try to get in the travel inn rather than Miramar though....

mattoo - I booked through madeyarun.

Your RW online entry has unaffiliated entries cheaper than affiliated entries, which I found confusing (I'm easily confused) so I used the link from your website.

Oh dear how did that happen

06/07/2012 at 08:16

I thought you were perhaps making a stand against UKA

06/07/2012 at 10:49

Yes that is right Shades, in memory of John Tarrant

06/07/2012 at 13:00

Well I'll support you on that subject

 You should have an email...
