I'm doing Neolithic Trail marathon Sunday. Which is why I am now drunk. I don't even know if Salisbury Plain has hills.

Whats with all this hills stuff ...Goldie was only joking ... wasn't he ?

I hope so. I think it's a flat 5k right.

04/05/2013 at 13:49

Mouse, is 5k of it flat? So just 37k-ish up and down then?


04/05/2013 at 19:55

26.46 miles??? Does that make it an Ultra

09/05/2013 at 12:10

Oh then I saw the elevation tab

09/05/2013 at 13:55

I have just looked at the elevation....please tell me that 2nd half isn't really like that...
At least the last mile or two are downhill

09/05/2013 at 16:02

Yeah about the last mile......Fu Man and I were loking at it and we havd to add a little bit to help us with sign posting because theres the risk of getting lost. 

the good news is you will now not get lost

the bad news is.......well how can i put this.....erm

Im sorry ok

09/05/2013 at 16:13

Don't tell me you're taking us up more bloody hills? Maybe have a chat to Mel Ross about signalling. Her runs are superb! 

09/05/2013 at 16:19

26.1 miles we hav....

I mean you have a very slight incline

before the plummet gentle glide into Sydling

So all good nothing to worry about. 

i will ensure we fill in the rabbit holes and get rid of the slippery sheep droppings 

09/05/2013 at 16:20

So basically its still 10 big hills and couple of little mole hill type affairs 

09/05/2013 at 16:39

How many Big Hills are there in the 10K... erm... hill race?

09/05/2013 at 17:06

Well theres a hill at 1 mile then 2.5 miles then a mole hill at 5.5



TBH the two in the 10k are tough but you dont have a further 23 miles and 8 major climbs  to run afterwards so all good

Markymark the photographer will be at 3 miles to get you in all your glory climbing to Jackmans cross whch is about 500 feet 

09/05/2013 at 17:20

I'm getting more and more scared of this run every time i look at it. The love point at Mile 20 better be good!

It will be amazing tables chairs food cakes etc cider
