Don’t worry Ultralan. 

The course is very well marked, and you will not have problems with navigation unless the markings are tampered with.  I would suggest that you might want to acquire the Harveys map of the North   Downs Way as a security blanket.

A map is part of the compulsory kit, if you dont have one you won't be allowed to start the race

Thanks for the info chaps. I had in fact already bought the 2 maps (East and West NDW) I've also since discussed the navigation with two other NDW runners since my earlier post who also assure me that the navigation markers are top notch.

Really looking forward to this, although I note that some friends who were also successful at GUCR didn't nail the Lakeland 100 today, which I view as a wake up call, given the massively different terrain of the GUCR/TR250 and NDW. I'm taking absolutely nothing for granted!

The NDW100 is a kitten compared to the Lakeland 100, but it is still a tough 100 mile event, that has to be treated with respect.

Ran from Wye to Bluebell Hill today. Trail was In cracking condition all stingers cut back and very runnable.

Really jealous of those racing..

I ran the L50 at the weekend in 13.21, now counting down the hours till the NDW100. 

Will be my first 100 and course runs pretty much through my back garden so the second half, especially from Wrotham to Bluebell Hill I know really well which I am hoping will help me out! Also means that members of my running club have been recruited to pace me as much as poss! 

Saying that I am still bloody nervous and hope to god I get round, and within the cutoff

Hi Emily - Lakeland 50 was fun, wasn't it? See you at Knockholt Pound.

Anyone got any special requests for food? Can't promise, but I'll try to make sure we have it.

Good luck Emily, I'm crewing and 'pacing' (I use that word loosely)  so will look out for you.

A smlie and words of encouragement and water melon debra would be good

01/08/2013 at 19:01

Watermelon. Okay - I'm going to be going and buying the fruit etc. so I'll make sure that's included.

After two years managing a parkrun, smiles and words of encouragement come as standard. I have to stop myself from shouting encouragement when I pass a runner when I'm on my bike or in the car...

Eeek, that's it, I've gone and entered! No going back now...!

Is anyone driving down on the morning of the race from London? Having paid the entry I'm not sure my budget will allow for Hotel & taxi but I'm happy to pay petrol.

How's everyone's preparations going? Tapering nicely I hope

Not long now!!!

I'm afraid I will be heading down on the Friday Shzza but you are welcome to jump in the car then.

Good luck to all runners this weekend

08/08/2013 at 20:30

The race preview is up so that means its really not long now!

Thanks Wacky, I found somewhere to stay Friday night so I'm happy to make my own way, but if you've got room and want to catch up on the way down that would be cool - pm me

Otherwise see you all there! I'm 178 if anyone wants to say hi, you might or might not get a response depending how far into the race we are! Hopefully I'll still be smiling

08/08/2013 at 21:10

Good luck to everyone doing this one, I hope you all have a sweet new belt buckle when Sunday comes around.

 

08/08/2013 at 21:34

Everyone ready ?

08/08/2013 at 21:56

Yes, good luck everyone - see you at Knockholt Pound.

09/08/2013 at 06:35

Well less than 24 hours to go and feeling more nervous about this race than the previous two. I'm race no 50 so say hi. See ya at knockhalt debra about 3 o'clock give or take a minute or two

09/08/2013 at 07:56

Good luck everyone. I'm 120. 3 at knockholt Lingster?.... I've got a feeling that I won't see much of you after the start

I'll see you at registration in my usual place, then again at St Marthas and probably a couple of other stations before I take up pacing duties later in the evening
