It is undulating, most of the time will be taken up reading the directions and keeping tabs on whether you have gone wrong so don't think of PBs or anything. Enjoy the day. Take plently of water and electrolyte, particularly if it is hot. Enjoy the bread pudding at the checkpoints, make friends and come for a cider afterwards!

 Spoons, don't worry about the taper, I'm rubbish at that too. And a marker is dropped here. Double bank holiday for Jubilee next June. 100 miler from olympic Park round the Green Belt to Windsor......bring it on!

See you all sunday and am really looking forward to this

Hi UB, up and running again? What's this about a 100 miler then?

Next June for the Jubilee, I'll chat to you tomorrow about it.

No chance of avoiding the rain I suspect - Boo. Feeling a bit lethargic tonight so I suspect it'll be a slow poodle round the course tomorrow. Happily I can't remember much from last year so it will feel like a mew race.

great to see you Helen. Fantastic work after the SDW 100 last week. You should have your feet up! I think we got split up over the last 10 miles or so. I got lost again but less so than at mile 16! feels great to be back.

well done all. the 50k is a much better run than the marathon

Feet up, beer in hand. Didn't get lost again though knees a bit sore. Good to see you're back to being ultra again.. The route felt more scenic than the marathon last year, not sure how this year's marathon compares.

That was great

Had a really good day and didn't get lost once
