I didn't know what I was letting myself in for when I signed up for this, and have been having second thoughts - but the comments from all of you guys have made it sounds like so much fun, that I will definitely be there - although I am still a little worried about the spiders.......
Never done anything like this before, so just hope I make it back in one piece!
I am in the same boat as you. I am also taking the advice of mdunn77 and forgetting about the time - I am just going to (hopefully) enjoy it for what it is. Its good to know that I am not the only novice at this.
Jumping in the mud sounds like a good strategy to me
I spoke to a friend and he advised pretty much the same - he also said that all the mud etc. takes your mind off how far you are running and makes it more fun!!
It's nice to know I'm not the only novice Leisa! Best of luck!
Does anyone know if I will get away with road trainers as my trail ones are on there way out the laces are breaking the eyelets might try and and tape them on as well. just don't want to end up running bare foot .
The final route is going to be on the longer side of the range - that's all I'm allowed to say as the mystery is all part of the experience
Great, nice easy 12 miles then. Any ideas on whether or not i will need my snorkel???
Good news - my colleague has owned up that the route is 17km give or take a bit for Garmins not reading properly under trees.
If you haven't got a didgy tummy before you will have after - who knows what is at the bottom of the primeval bogs
