I have done a couple of team 24 hr MTB events many moons ago but never a running one.  Its looks superb.  I'm no ultra runner though but don't mind running in the black of night.  I could manage a few laps over the course of 24hrs.

Did you see that the solo winner did 20 laps, so over 120 miles last year!!!

Would have to be a not too serious team for me - road 10k time about 43 mins.

As I know I couldn't do 24 hours alone or as a pair, but with 8 people you would only get to go round a maximum of 3 times, I recon a team of 5 or 6 is best.

Sounds perfect to me to get about 5 or 6 laps in each.

I did this solo a couple of years back. Was going really well until I decided to eat 2 burgers from the very good burger tent, then thought I'd have a quick 30 minute snooze before getting back out there.... Woke up about 6 hours later. Danger of not having any support...! It is a fantastic event, really well organised, amazing atmosphere. If it didnt clash with Lakeland 100 I'd do it again.

I'm a possible, but I can't commit at the moment.  Put me on the reserve list until I can work out what I am doing.  I'm also a slow runner - 60 min for 10k at the best of times, but I can't pass up the oportunity of a weekend with Cake

Im still in.  Haven't disucssed with my good lady wife yet but she is very understanding about my events.

Let me know where to send my share of the entry fee etc.

Looking forward to it - but I repeat - I'm no ultra runner!

This sounds fun but I need to get there somehow...
