Tough crowd round here.   Like this forum better than TT though if you can use rude words.

 

My thanks to Mr Funkin.

 

While I'm here Re: crewing - the post about someone who knows you well a few pages back - if you can get someone like that it will be invaluable.  Can't emphasise that enough.

Occasionally, on these therads are some absolute gold nuggets of info.  Invaluable advice that every endurance athlete should save somewhere or commit to memeory and follow religiously.  Your post was one such.

Unfortunately for every incredible and essential insight there are those who speak with forked tongue of impure untruths.

DK I have to agree with you that I didn't find much of a challenge at Outlaw, yes its a long day and yes I didn't push that hard but the next day I thought I could do that again today. Ultra running is probably more rewarding, but at my advanced age far less kind on the body.

JOGLE with Deloitte Ride across Britain is UKP 1800 for 9 days, which whilst more than you could do it solo for does provide accommodation, food and luggage transportation, it where I will be in 2013 As to running LEJOG I have two friends who tried it both very experienced ultra runners and both winners / podium placed in some of the big ones and neither of them finished which tell you what running 50 miles a day for three weeks can do to you.

Ah gawd, dont tell her that

Oi Big Ted

 

Get back where you belong. I've trawled the whole bloody forum looking for you on a running thread - how stupid of me was that !

 

I have the offer of crew but unfortunately will clash with family holiday, unless I can get the wife sectioned before next June

Was told there was lots of tri-talkers two timing (Big - now a runner - Ted, you know who you are ) on here so just thought i'd drop in.

I've never competed at Enduroman but i've crewed on a double, a quin and a deca at both Lichfield and Avon Tyrell so i've seen quite alot of what goes on. As regards the double being for slow plodders this just isnt the case when there are top athletes such as Ghislain Marechal, Paul Thompson and Hywel Davies racing. The double is in fact relatively short and raceable compared to the triple, quin or deca which generally need a different strategy based more around food and sleep than just racing.

Also bear in mind the AT course isnt a normal course people who could easily do sub 11 at the outlaw would probably do 12.5 to 13 hours at AT. At the other end of the field finishing AT in 18-20 hours is probably a far bigger ask than completing the outlaw just inside the cut off.

I would also second everything that has been said about Enduromans great organisation. Everyone is one happy family with Pirates supporting and lending TTers food and vice versa. Never had this experience crewing/supporting on any other race. It almost became known as the great Pirate/TT alliance but that was maybe going a bit far.

only two of us so far ??

I think we need to start a recruitment campaign 

There is something for everyone: A Double ; A Single; A Half....or if you don't fancy that, a 100 mile run

Think I might be trying to take 30 seconds off my sprint time instead, as that seems to be harder, or so I'm told

Family holiday very unlikely due to other half's work commitments

So I should be there, either Double or 100
