Just completed this two day event (2 x 30 miles), & had a great time running in the New Forest. Organisation was brilliant with superb support & cameraderie...cannot believe that until the Around the Isle of Wight Ultra last June that I had never thought I was capable at aged 55 of multi day marathon/ultra running.
Now after a number of 2- day events & 2 x 3- day events (Atlantic & Jurassic Challenges), I'm totally hooked on pushing back those self-perceived boundaries!
If I can give them a go, anyone can!
I am slower than slow (a sub 5 mara in my dreams ). Neil and crew are very kind about cut off times. Last year on day 1 of Pilgrims' - due to a lot probs got to penutimate cut off at 6.45p.m - instead of supposed 5.30 - was still allowed to continue to finish and arrived just before 10pm.
Day 2 and 3 might be a bit less accomodating as have to be bussed to overnight stay from end of Day 2 and on Day 3 they need to pack up and return vans etc. to base. Go for it!! (Be you ever so slow there will - probably - be a Bear Behind you).
