This looks a great event. Not cheap, but could be a lovely weekend. Anyone else thinking about this?
Considered if briefly, then spotted that it's more to do it all in one than to split it over two days, makes for an expensive 100k.
Looking at it as a weekend activity, seems better value..
Two things for me:
2) Middle of summer = hot.
Call me a wimp, but it might be something you lot also want to consider.
The cheaper 2 day option does not include camping fees. I've been on the Ridgeway at various times of year and hot and dry is much better than cold wet and muddy. The worst irritant for me is the oil seed rape flowers, but these tend to bloom early May - when the Ridgeway 40 is held. I would love to do this, but things a bit 'up in the air' at the moment and not sure if I can commit myself.
I like the look of this but I'm doing my first ultra a few weeks before. Depending on any positive feedback, I'll think about it for next year.
£120 for 100k?!!? Yet only £95 if you take 2 days to do it. Just train a bit more and enter the Ridgeway 85, 4 weeks later.
Ironically my first marathon begins where this ultra ends (at Avebury) and finishes at another set of stones (I think they are called Stonehenge or something like that)
Is that really ironic? or coincidence? or just a peice of information that may be neither?
Hope you are set for Reading, there are high hopes for you. 75 mins or bust.
Actually youre right, there is nothing ironic....... it is more co-incidental. Doh!
Ummm, yeah 1:15'ish ......sure ..... no probs!
We are allowing 30 minutes +/- right though???
ha ha ha WIB!
I looked at this one too, looks really nice but it costs way to much!
Any idea how feasible it would be to just do it on your own? Water stops, shops maybe near the trail?
Was thinking of doing this with my brother in law just on our own with a gps but was a little unsure about water
