Ive got an OS map of the area and got a compass. Been a long time since I have done any poroper navigation so will get them out tomorrow for a brush up.
Really do not know what to expect with this so it should be fun/

Are Mudroc ok? I have heard lots of people complain about blisters.
So there's a question then, assuming everyone's seen the latest e-mail......,
Walking or running start (0800 or 0930)?
I think I'd like to have the company of the walkers on the later stages of the run rather than just leave them all at the start and not see them for the rest of the day.
I just wonder what sort of fitness level do you require for this event? I am tempted to take part, but i am a regular road runner and a complete novis to trail and fell running, do you think i can handle this? Also do you think it is a good idea to do this event 4 weeks before London marathon?
Many thanks in advance for your advice.
Isn't it three weeks before London?
It's a very different proposition with the combination of conditions underfoot and all the climb. I don't hink it's a good idea. Having said that, someone in my club is doing both.
Please could I have the route too.Thank you

Ok, I'm in, should be a nice treat after the flatness of Blackpool @Clwydian, don't suppose you could DM me the GPX route too could you?!
yep as TR40 said we've done a recce in two sections, not so sure my legs are looking forward to doing it all in one go, but I am
In feet - 5130
One error in the plot adds I about 30 I think.
It's definitely hilly and a bit deceptive to think of the whole number as the real climbs don't come until the second half of the route after the Kinmel Arms (CP7). From that point on you are either climbing or descending quite steeply.
4 weeks to go!
I off to do a big chunk of it now.
Yes you are right, it is three weeks away from London marathon. I will stick to road running for this time. I hope they will organise it again for next year.
Good luck to you all. I would be very interested to read any feedback from the race.
