One for wall, and wall for one...
Have fun everyone
Afternoon, late at joining in here... I am down to do the one day event and it will be my first Ultra.
Hey Steve - better late than never Welcome aboard - it's really worth going back to the beginning and reading the thread if you haven't done so already - there is some awesome info between our banterings! Plus there are photos of what we're letting ourselves in for.... personally I can't wait - 17 weeks to go folks
Hi Steve - all the cool kids turn up late to parties. What made you decide to enter?
Didn't get across to look at the Vindolanda to Hexham section today. Was snowing fairly steadily when I woke up, so I let out a long stream of naughty words and went to the gym instead. I'll probably try again on Friday if anyone fancies joining.
17 weeks? Eek
One dayAlasdair Fowler, Alick, Amster and Mr Amster, Benjamin Kissel, Blakester, Checkmate, EKGO, Gramck +1, Ian78, John MacKenzie, Keith Jones +1, Magnus McGillivray, Mr X, Paulkrunner, Richard Langton, Rockhopper Penguin. Steve Orton, The Foon+3. Tim Lister.
Two daysCraney, Crash Bang Wallop, Edinburghemma +Ashley. Flatfoot+1, Louise Hall, Marcus Nichols +2, Oscarr, Pinkbug, Pursued by Angry Bees +1, RunningRaRa, Sleepy Bear, Weedy.
You're not wrong RaRa - planning longer routes is becoming increasingly complicated - ran round most the moain roads in the borough the other day.
Still, moving house in March, instead of 3 miles from work, I'll now be 19 miles from work. Funny how running can make things seem like an advantage, eh? Reckon I can get a lift in and run back a day or two each week - the last three or four miles are up constant steep hills, hurrah!
Hi,I have a team entry to the Wallrun 2013 (one day) which I would like to sell. I have recently acquired a stress fracture in my ankle and so would be unable to run it. It has a face value of £280 but I am willing to take £200, and for this you will receive 2 entries into the race.
I am running The Wall this year but want to ask anyone about a place to stay at the half way spot. I dont fancy taking a tent and I have heard of a youth hostel and a pub with rooms to let not too far away.
Is it within walking (hobbling) distance at all please?
That's great blakester and EKGO. And sensibly run too. I'm jealous. I've managed to hurt my hip, my knee feels funny and my chest is full of nasties. Popping vits like there's no tomorrow. Spirulina shake anyone?
Hi Chris. The Twice Brewed pub's about 1km from Vindolanda http://www.twicebrewedinn.co.uk/home.html Me, Sleepy Bear and Oscar have booked in there, maybe a few others as well. Not all the rooms are en-suite tho, so I'd get sorted quick. There might be a few farm B&B's in hobbling distance if you hunt about.
Great going EKGO and Blakester.
Emma - just googled spirulina shake - looks yack. Hope the hip and knee are just a minor niggle.
Two daysChris Kiteman, Craney, Crash Bang Wallop, Edinburghemma +Ashley. Flatfoot+1, Louise Hall, Marcus Nichols +2, Oscarr, Pinkbug, Pursued by Angry Bees +1, RunningRaRa, Sleepy Bear, Weedy.
Been reading the forum for a while now and finally signed up for the 2day event, 1st time at this distance but have run a couple of marathons, mixture of excitment and fear still at this stage.
What do people think about trainers for the course I usually run in Asics 1170 but am wondering if I'll need to look into Trail shoes.
Weather dependent, if it's dry it'll be gel kayano for me all the way, second half in particular has a lot of track and tarmac
