Bare with me on this, 30 years ago I neet a chap from west Wales who ran 100miles in 24hours and that entitled him to join the 100 miler club. My question is, is that club still going?

I have not heard of it since , or anybody else doing it.

Not sure about an official club , but there are plenty of 100 mile races in the UK you can do.

Andrew DuBois,

                         The chap who ran it spent 3 days in bed, his heart rate was so low everyone thought that he was dead [ he was in a army camp at the time ] and a doctor was called who put him on a drip.

After the third day he got up as if nothing had happened. but he was never the same runner again.

 I dont think I would put myself through that,  just wondered if the club was still going.

This chap also called Roy, died about 5/6 years ago but I always admired for what he did.

Have a look in the Ultra/Adventure Racing section, Roy. Lots of century races in there, one this weekend along the Thames path. I managed a 50 last month, and am looking to attempt a 100 next year.

There is a club called the Centurions of people who have covered 100 miles in under 24 hours,but they appear to be walkers rather than runners.

Fast walkers, for sure!

Thanks one and all .

Seren nos, to be honest with myself I dont think that I have the apptitude for that distance. Mind you I have done a few 50/40/30 milers over the years.

Helvetica Bold, will look that up, once again thanks.
