After bailing this year due to a suspect right knee that turned out to be nothing, nothing is gonna stop me from Stingering next year. Entry in the post.

Entry in the post for me too. Anyone know why the good races are only open to online entry for RW subscribers... Guess I just answered my own question

la la la I can't hear you...

Still on my to do list but i don't know when.

Might run the half again but will be running the Brighton marathon next year so I think to do the full marathon may be a bit foolish....

Since running the half last year I have joined Steyning AC so there is always a chance I will be marshalling instead

I don't really want to do the half when I want to do the full but I'm still avoiding marathons so I may do the half. There are quite a few off road hilly hals that would make a good year.

Steyning, 3 Forts, Seaford, South Downs, Milland, Firle - then there's Eridge 10, Lewes 10 and Bewl 15. We'll see.

How quickly does this fill up?

I'm in.  Using it as part of my training for my first ultra in May.  I'm getting a cold sweat just typing the word ultra.

Wow - ultra is impressive! I'm doing the half now - downgraded after picking up an injury (typical). My first go at a half marathon so probably good I'm not doing the full......

good luck to all in this

Just entered, third year in a row for me. But as this is the first marathon I have done in 9 months I am feeling very nervous! I haven't ran longer than 10 miles in one session since October.

TCP which ultra are you doing?
03/01/2012 at 15:39
Mr Guy - Hi.  Malvern Hills Ultra.  53 miles in May.
05/01/2012 at 12:19
53 miles, nice! I would like to do a long Ultra at some point, the furtherest I have gone before is 33 miles. That being said I think I am going to struggle with 26 in March!

What was 33 like?  Which race was it?
06/01/2012 at 15:59
The Marlborough downs challenge I have done it twice now and a couple of other short ultras as well. 33 miles was fine, not significantly more difficult than a marathon. Marlborough downs is a bit flatter than Stenying and in the run up to it I was running marathons every month so I was used to doing 26.2. The mistake I made/ always make is setting off too fast.
What sort of triaing have you being doing, back to back long runs or really long runs?
06/01/2012 at 18:49

Is 'short ultra' an oxymoron?  33 is impressive in my book.

I've gone for the back to back option.  9 and 16 is my longest so far.  10 and 18 this weekend.  Got 3 marathons booked so far and I'll do at least 10 the day before.

I'm in.....Love this event and am using as a bit of a recce for the SDW100 in which it goes through

Just entered this as a change from boring road runs, planning on treating it as a long training run. Course looks a bit of a b*gger, but the breakfast at the end sealed it for me  Hope it's really cold and frosty rather than muddy as despite years of trying I can't find a comfortable pair of trail shoes

Last time I did it Old Gwasshopper it was frosty on the North facing slopes, and muddy on the South facing!

Thanks Bob, look forward to struggling up and sliding down then, basically
