how well are the check points stocked , do they have food or just drinks ?
Coming down from Fleetwood to do the 50k. Is it advisable to do it in road or trail shoes?
Thank you Millsy1977.Just what I needed to hear. I love running in my trail shoes especailly over a marathon distance and like yours they are lightweight and grippy.
Not keen on the 40% on road but the trail sections sound nice.
I'll be in lightweight road shoes.
40% road sounds good to me, but looking forward to being off road too!
This is one of the best organised events I've ever done - from the comprehensive information sent out beforehand, including maps, to the way runners and walkers are looked after on the day, including the option of having a post-event massage.
I've run it a few times and, apart from the unavoidable road sections that I don't like, the only downside is the magnificant cathedral spire that never seems to get any closer over the last few miles!
See you all there - I will be wearing my 100 marathon vest for the first time.
Was going to be my first Ultra but with so many injuries I knocked it down to the 30k. I just couldn't live with myself if I chose to do the Marathon and had something left in the tank to have completed the 50k. SO 30k it is Still a bit hit and miss but it will be my furthest event to date and it seems to get many good reviews so well looking forward to it
Competing the 21K in preparation for the Wightlink challenge next month. Anyone know if it is the same course as last year? Will aim for higher finish than 33rd although running with suspected shin splints! Cure??
