30 or 40 miles around Sherwood Forest
Will be doing the 40 again , after finishing with a bad knee last year Ive got a score to settle,have already been training on the route,
I cam away with a very favourable impression of this event.
Certainly might talk myself into doing it again.
I'll be back looking to go faster!
In on the 40. Managed 62 miles this week & i'm still just about in one peice. My first ultra event & hopefully it will not put me off.
Good weeks running that Rosko, see you there!
Thinking about having another go.
It is a bit close to the Manchester Marathon, bu I would likely be OK.
Are there any rules for this event regarding drop bags & outside help like pacers?
Ben Davies - It's earier this year so much less likely to be quite so SCORCHIO, hopefuly see you there.
We will see.
It is just two weeks before Hardmoors, so I have a tough decision to make.
will there be route markings this year? i seem to remember some last year but did it mainly on the instructions
This is Roger from the Dukeries Ultra. We are in the final stages of getting everything organised and have been let down by two groups who where supposed to be manning aid stations for us.
As I'm sure you all appreciate, the volunteers on aid stations are probably the most important people at a race. Due to the people who have let us down, we are now not going to be able to give timing splits as we feel looking after the runners is more important.
One aid station currently remains uncovered. This would be the A614 near the Clumber Park Hotel. We need 2 or 3 volunteers to be there between 11:45 and 16:30 next Saturday afternoon. You would get the usual packed lunch, t-shirt and a free entry to next years race all for being out in Sherwood Forest passing water and Jelly Babies to tired runners.
If you can help please get in touch either on here or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Roger, if you post the message above on your facebook page, then I'll share it, as I'm sure others will, may be able to drum up a bit of checkpoint support
It's been on the Dukeries Ultra facebook page a couple of times and on my personal one as well.
But please share as much as you can )
Roger are you still after helpers, I'll ask around at my club session tonight, a few were interested in running so the free entry to next year will most likley pursuade them.
Hoping it cools down a little for the weekend!!
Thanks John, that would be great
Another 2 or 3 wouldn't go amiss
