Soupy.

 I haven't sorted out accomodation yet...seemed to think it was about 20 for the electric hook up a night..i was thinking on asking how much their rooms were...........I'm staying friday, sat, sunday night......

did you want to look at sharing tents or rooms if its cheaper

Seren - quick look at the website, it would appear you need to book a room for 3 nights min stay which is £124 per person!

Camping is £7 pppn, or you could get a tipi for 50 quid!

Prices here

Yep - it does talking about booking the camp site. I was planning to come down Friday to Sunday to shout abuse at you  lot and drink beer....if that's OK

the £124 must include all the meals........

 £7 a night sounds good.i thought i paid a lot more........maybe because i originally booked for 4 of us and with electric hookup .i will phone..would rather have my own food....

The 7 quid is for normal camping, with no electric to keep madam's wine cool

just phoned and booked........no point in sharing tents when its £7 per person .....the electric hook up was £4 a night so in total just £33 for the three nights.and i can keep the bacon, sausage and beer/wine cool

 

she said I'm in the filed  not the normal electric hookup place in the forest....though i might of misunderstood her as I didn't think they had any electric hookup in the main field.......would rather be in the big field .less chance of flooding

Just to let you guys know - the "rat run" - the lane that runs down to the turn circle has been retarmaced and is silky smooth.

Was down there this weekend - brought back some memories!

I'd better get booking a tent slot I think then.

just booked my tent space, same as you seren, in a field next to the lake as the other area has no more leccy hook ups left. 

24 days and its getting a bit too real, really need to shift some lard now and do some training

I know a few of the names in the frame for a couple of weeks time as in Seren and Doner but is anyone else doing any of the events to look out for in the results??

Hows it going Doner??

going pretty well tbh chilli , i got in a few long rides, topped out at 130 - it was a hard 130 though, running is pretty solid even if it is a lot slower than what i used to train for, can blame the ultras for that, but on the upside i can run for fecking miles, maybe not after a 232mile bike though. all good endurance.Biked though the night a couple of times,

i ran in the night loads last year and still a few times this year for it to be comfortable/normalised. My swimming is the usual controlled drowning so im not expecting anything too quick there. I have realistically changed what i think im capable of in light of the lack of focused training and will be happy with a 34ish time. A single ironman has a 17 hour cutoff so if i can do double that for double the distance i will chuffed, anything over 36 i wont be so glad.

im quite looking forward to the weeks following tbh, my first 100 miler is a huge milestone for me and to revisit the outlaw will be cool and the thunder run will be an attempt to improve on 100 miles in 24 hours but weather is going to play a hand in that. Next year is going to be mental

oh chilli if you can hang around for a bit my brother might need a few hours kip if you could stand in for him - nothing too demanding, a bloke that was meant to be crewing for my 100 miler was also meant to be helping with this but he was a waste of time.

is anyone else coming to support/throw food at me ?
