The clues in the title
It's in the Meon Valley, and it's a bit of a plod. Well it certainly is up the last hill, along with several others.
One of the highlights for me last year was the Pink Ladies who could be heard for several miles both before and after them.
What was your highlight?
Love this race but haven't done it for a couple of years. Heard today that it doesn't go up Butser anymore.
Is there anyone coming down from London with room in their car for a small one? Happy to pay petrol.
Hi Helly d,
can't help with the lift but can say I've seen the route and this does still go up Butser Hill, so you and your quads wont be disappointed!
hi , Helly D
please let me have your details and i'll try find you a lift from one of the london entrants

folow the event on twitter @meonvalleyplod
Yes it still goes UP Butser Hill and a few other places as well
I did move but only about 2 miles across Clapham Common. Where do you want picking up from? I was aiming to leave around 8.
And the cold is fine. It will freeze the mud.
its not really nippy. thats just the Air Con i ordered to keep you all from overheating during the event
can your teeth manage frozen cake and jelly babies ?
i have not put the course map on the website as we cant have runners over the private land other than race day . if anyone wants a copy email /forum/smilies/tongue_out_smiley.gif[/img]firstname.lastname@example.org]email@example.com and i'll send one.
Anyone got a guess to the total vertical for the course ?
I dont normally do anything over a half-m (21km) but have been doing fell-race type training (eg box hill @ 505m in 11.5km) so could be up for the challenge if the vertical is in that range.
20.95 miles 909m of ascent
pure pleasure ...............................
