I am organising a brand new event for October this year.
A 50/100 run on, all on trail on Caesars Camp, Aldershot, Hampshire.

do we have to run in in a toga, or a tutu?

Depends on your gender really...
Naked is fine by me as if you're female and goodlooking...

This looks interesting and could be a good alternative to the London to Brighton.

do you think it would be REALLY stupid to do 4 maras and this in October?
just the 50

Hi Hippo,
The 100 is going to be fairly harsh so if you had a high workload already this year you might wanna stay at 50.

The loop I am designing does not have any real long climbs like you will get in US 100's, but it is going to be a rollercoaster type of affair. Some very steep, short up and downhills and lots of 'em. The aim is roundabout 1400ft of climb per loop, so 14,000ft for the total race if you do the full enchilada.

Stoney uphill struggles, lots of treeroots and other ankletwisters, some nice sandy uphills, deep rutted tank tracks.....

One thing I think is useful is to let you make your mind up as you go along, so if you feel good, feel free to keep running.
If you had enough, you can stick at 50.

Hope to see you there, follow Caesars Centurions!

Knew I'd catch you on here Hippo :) I like the way you describe marathons as short races.

I am aiming for the weekend of 7-9 October.
The limitation is what the MoD allows me to do depending on whether they plan any major troop excercises around that time.

They said, it's mine if I want on that date.
Summers are out, English Landscape does not allow any events on that plod of land between Feb and October.

See ya there,

Oh dear... I'm only up at this time of the morning cause I'm still starving hungry after doing T2T on Saturday..... I must have clicked on the wrong thread!

30/01/2006 at 10:26
You're right Hippo - I've done the ultra thing so so can return to normal life!
