New trail race
I'll see you next year, and the year after until I get the 100
I saw Dave the Irishman - looked out on his feet at around 12.30pm. We also ran together at around 6 pm as he didn`t take his torch.My blog for those who haven`t read it http://abloggerstalebymrk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/whats-point-if-you-cannot-push-yourself.html
Hope everyone`s recovery is coming along well.
I`ll be back next year
Word of advice - Henk does not like his course details put up on the internet (ie Garmin routes etc) as it spoils the surprise, especially for the 30 milers who only get to see it in the dark
Hey Mr. K. Here's my carbon copy of your report.
Good meeting you if only briefly and in a bit of a bad place, just at the end.
Matt nice report and cheers for the link... well done on your run. I must have seen you near the end of your 4th lap?! I was in the white/blue vest with black arm warmers on.
I think you were going too fast for me to see you. Amazing run and you got it mostly done in daylight and all in the dry.
Hello Matt, I wondered who those carrots were for I ate & drunk very little really - 330ml flat coke, 3 cups of orange, 2 gels, 1 Muller Rice, 3 coffees, a couple of sweets & a jelly. veggieboy - Thanks for tip of - I`ll click private on the Garmin settings later. (Sorry Henk)
I ate 30 shot bloks and drank about 2 litres of water with elete electrolyte in. Oh and a coke at the midway checkpoint on the last lap I think.
It started raining shortly after I finished Matt. The course was already bad for the last 2 - 3 laps out the back of the course but the rain must have made it even worse.
WIB - your work rate was a lot higher than mine esp when you flew past me. I need to try out those shot blocks.
Mark - as long as he wants...brave or silly person to ask him directly.
Mr K - I think they are good. I can stomach them a lot better than gels. Well, the gels I have tried anyway. The only problem is you have to take about 3 of them to make the equivelent of a gel so I was taking about 6 a lap.
No idea on the results Jay and can't remember from last year. I have just checked and nothing on the site yet...
No results up, but provisional date for next year 19/20 Oct
Entries open 1 March 2013
Might go back to the 100 next year. i could get around that. I couldnt get around the 50
I was thinking of the 100 Daz... I know I can run a faster 50 so not sure which to go for.
If I was you I'd do the 50, get that time down even more to put off anyone else having a go. I havn't decided what distance yet.
50 is most likely as it would be much easier to fit in than a 100, plus I am not sure I fancy 10 laps! Either way, hopefully see a few of you there again.
Ladies, I hope to have the results up before the end of November. Work pressures are currently taking much of my spare time.
Please be patient, it will happen, it's not an easy job.
