Anyone considering doing this one? Looking to do a biggie next year as I sadly hit 40  , but have only run marathon distance up to now. Obviously looks a bit ambitious but I reckon it could be worth a years hard work??!!

Have run a couple of Ultras but nothing like this, very tempting!

Hmm... interesting. I've not done longer than mara either. Are you thinking of doing the whole lot ? I was going to do my own ultra - round the London Capital Ring 78 miles, but a bit of cammeraderie might be nicer.

Am a bit confused from the description how long this one is. They talk about five marathons in five days, but when I add up the total stages, I get 216 miles =  8 marathons !

Hi Sleek,  the reference to the five marathons means that the '7' race actually qualifies for five completed marathons, one each day.  i.e. each day goes over a marathon distance. This is then acceptable for organisations such as the hundred marathon club counting as five completed marathons.

e.g. if you ran a race of say 100 mile you only get one qualifying marathon out of it.

I'm in.

I've done one stage race before, but nothing of this distance; should be a lot of fun!

I'm in!! I did the Trans Britain last year, so I've done a long multistage. Nothing with 50+ mile stages though! Need to start upping the mileage on the long runs I think.

Does anyone know if this will be on in 2013? Im doing my first half marathon in 5 weeks then plan to a marathon later in the year think the one day or 53 miles event could be a brilliant aim for next year
