Well i've gone and done it now & signed up for the race.   Are there any training plans or is it a matter of just putting a lot of miles in?

I ran the MB marathon last year so i know this will be a lot tougher.

How do you train for this kind of event?

It's not necessarily miles you'll need it's vertical, depending on where you live find your nearest mountain and get used to doing reps on it

Lirish - thanks for the advice.   Live not too far from the purbecks and there are plenty of hills there.

No worries, if you did the mont Blanc marathon last year you know exactly how tough it'll be, get your head around climbs lasting hours rather than minutes and you'll go a long way towards being prepared.
I think it's telling that the say the time limit for the race is 24 hours, I imagine you're in for a fantastic race
