I'am toying with the idea of going for the one dayer


28/06/2013 at 06:13

Oh go on then, one dayer again


28/06/2013 at 07:03

Hahaha... knew it wouldn't be long.

FFS, on one hand I don't want to do it, I'd like to try another race, on the other hand, now that I have ran the route I'm sure I could run it faster and finish in the top 100. Decisions decisions.

Can't be many who'll have done all three Runnin Man.

Know what you mean Pinkbug. I'd love to try it in one day, but just don't think I'd have the time to do the long runs needed.

John, plenty of time to decide. Can you do this as well as something else?

One-dayer: Runnin Man.

Two-dayer: Weedy.

I've got the braking strain of a wet paper bag, put my name down for the 1 dayer again!


Got the grim reaper on the 2-3rd of August.

Found the below for September, just got to convince the wife now


28/06/2013 at 17:23

I'm in - just need to decide one dayer or two...

28/06/2013 at 18:18

Definitely not doing it!... Well, probably not.... well I'll think about it... ok, i might....


Aargh, stop it!  


I think if I trained this time I could go from 17hrs44mins to under 15hrs.

been following the thread for the 2013 event in complete envy and am so glad someone has already started this one cos I'm in! I shall go for the 2 day, I will be slower than you guys but I will succeed.....

Been dreaming about it and was with you all in spirit last weekend, wishing it was me! Well next year barring any accidents it will be. Though not sure I fancy that flamin' hill out of Vindolanda - or the one in, or the stile.....

Hi grumpycow. Don't worry about times at all, I never came across anyone who was racing to beat other people. Maybe the winners were, but I found the rest of us were all just there for a laugh.

John - You lasted 3 hours 53 mins before you caved by my reckoning  You looking at the 24-hour thing as a solo or as a team?

Forgot to add Richard and Emma to the list as well. You two out there? How's it going?

One-dayer: John MacKenzie, Richard Langton, Runnin Man.

Two-dayer: Edinburgh Emma, Weedy.

Definitely: Jack Kirtley.

Definitely Maybe: Alasdair Fowler.

I feel like I've conquered the wall...looking for a new challenge for next year. Saying that I reckon I could shave a chunk off my time...but who knows...weather could make it a different experience.... 

Prob be Back but not next time I don't think...

I'll be going solo, off to Mexico for two weeks now so will work on the wife and convince her that running another ultra this year is a good idea

30/06/2013 at 12:01

Check out this www.broadmeadowrun.co.uk just entered the back to back marathons in December .

30/06/2013 at 20:50

Weedy you tease! 

A week a go I would have said deffo not - today I'm thinking "hmmmmm".

Give it another week... and promise you'll run as a Mexican.

At the same time, looking (very vaguely) at this for end of August:

Tyne Ultra

They just ran a North East 100/60/40 this weekend - checked in on the live GPS tracking a few times - felt envious.

01/07/2013 at 21:56

Mexico sounds good John - have a good one.

Pinkbug - link doesn't work


Bees - Haha, it's a deal. Been looking at the Avidrunner one myself. Got Wolves Marathon that weekend sadly.

Hi all .. hope to get out tonight to do a slow 6 after the wall I was knocked down with a stinking cold which went straight down to my chest ended up with chest infection feel better now. Got the cheddar marathon in august and hope to do a 50k ultra in north devon in September. Have entered into the thames trot 50 ultra in feb.


02/07/2013 at 10:55

Forgot to say wont be running the wall next year.think 2 times is enough ..

02/07/2013 at 13:58

 Blakester which one in Devon, is it Bideford? I'm doing that, it'll be my first run in two months. I did Coombe Abbey marathon at weekend and wished I'd never bothered, 1 week after the Wall it was too much of a hard slog

02/07/2013 at 19:36

Yes runnin man the sbideford 50k ultra looking forward to it going to run steady and enjoy it.its only down the m5 for me.hope to do the endurancelife cts ultras as well.
