Usual question ... who else is in for this year's race, and can anyone who's done it before add anything reassuring to the comments on the ratings page?
This will be the longest race I've done (did 50k six years ago) and I'm banking on my endurance training for last month's marathon (4 weeks prior to NU35) to see me round. I'm looking forward to the pace of the ultra, if not the distance, as it should feel fairly comfortable after marathon training! (I hope!!)
My goal is just to finish within the 9-hour limit, but if I could do it under 8 hours then the battery on my watch should hold out for that long!!
Hey Shazza, a few of us over on the 'wannabe ultra runners' thread are doing this one, and they're a pretty friendly bunch.
If you post this in the Ultra Running section you might get more hits.
Getting close now, I'm looking forward to it.

See you on Sunday
Many thanks for that, Simon, that's more like what I was after!
See you Sunday ... on what looks to be a fairly sunny and warm day!
