Doesn't seem to be a thread for this year's event so shall we carry on with this one? Shouldn't really clutter up the forum with too many Fling threads.
Looking forward to it.
Is there baggage transport from the start to the finish?
Don't think so Trex. You're supposed to have a support crew to carry your stuff.
Been training for thie for a few months now. First big ultra - I hope to do the WHW next year if I can get around this in decent enough shape..
Sorry for duff info TRex. I've just discovered that you don't need back-up and they are having drop off bags. See here:
How's your training coming along?
A bit erratic, Scream. Trying to make sure the long runs are not missed though. Done one 25-miler in local hills recently and had a PB for a road 50K at end of Jan.
Going out for possibly my toughest ever training run on Monday - about 32 miles over some very hilly country. Enough time for perhaps a couple more of these in March, and doing a road 39-miler at beginning of April. Hope that's enough to get by. (Shorter stuff in between of course, although I'm a low mileage runner.)
First 50 so not quite doing the number of long runs you've listed. Done a few 20s with 10-12s the next day and planning two 30-35 milers, one later this month and one in April. Training going reasonably well at the moment.
I'm looking forward to the lights nights when I can get some trail/hill sessions in during the weeks.
Keep your eye on the fling website folks it appears there will be a return bus from Tyndrum and they will be taking names soon.
Ah, fellrunner, you're here already!
What's with this cottage for finishers? Going to be a little cosy with 119 runners already entered. No showers specifically mentioned.
Scream - a bit of military precision with your plans, by the looks of it.
Scream no support crew for me i find them to be an additional pressure especially if they are not where you expect them and when, but good luck.
Trex i don`t know about showers however it may be woprth asking Ellen the question via the Forum on the FLING website, last year after the finish i grabed my change of clothes and went back to the final river crossing and had a good sluice down in there far more sanitary than a heavily used shower (just dont use soap in the river though pollution you understand) .
I have 1 suport driver who will drive my van as practice for WHW race.
Will get a wash at Fort William sat night before hiting the pub and geting some food down me so ready for Lochaber Marathon on the Sunday. You still on for the double also Fellrunner.
BTW FR shame you cant make that 64 miler so far only 5 entries.
