Too much Stella last night and then some late night internet surfing has somehow resulted in me entered in the SDW100 in June 2013. (guess it could have been worse )

It'll be a big jump from what I've previously done, but how hard can it be

Anyone else entered?

Oh yes... can't wait

I've entered just so that I have a confirmed place. It will then be a toss up between that and something at Avon Tyrell depending on family commitments

Pretty much done the same thing with the ULTRArace.100. Won't do the same as I done for my first ultra and keep postponing training, getting started tomorrow

I'm in again once this ultra bug gets you you just can't say no !

Current idea for me is from Jan 2013, once a month a long day in the hills somewhere.

A couple of these will probably be reccying the 2nd half of the course.

Nearer the time I'll post some details / invites if anyone is interested in joining me.

Me too...I live just outside Brighton so am always happy to help with that end of the course. Devils Dyke, Saddlescombe, Ditchling Beacon etc.

My max to date is 100k so this is one step beyond for me   If anyone is free next Sunday, there is the Jog Shop 20 'race' which although doesn't take you over very much of the SDW it is in the area and gives you a feel for the terrain and 'undulations'

Im in too - great race by a great organiser.

It is fairly tough but not as hard as the NDW - I will be targetting a time on it.

You say not as hard, but actually SDW has a greater climb than NDW and can be more exposed to a headwind...

That's true but most of the SDW roll constantly some of the climbs in the NDW especially towards the end are very long and steep. I ran checkpoints in in both races and know the race organiser and lots who have done both and most say thatthe NDW feels harder even though the accumilative elevation is less.
Just an opinion of course!

DV - The beauty of the direction of the race is you are far more likely to get a tail wind. I run 75% of my training on the South Downs and the wind will nearly always be West to East.

Too true Fireman NDW was way harder than the SDW.

I have resisted entering as i really must do some different events in 2013 but this is a fantastic race and i envy you all.

I've offered to sweep the first 50, May jog to the end would be a good training run.

PS66 - I swept the sports ground through to Washington this year. Its good fun and enjoyable run... I set off just before 10:00 and caught up the runners at about mile 40. So you can afford to set off a while afterwards if you want a good run. The first couple of aid stations were gone when I arrived but there were a couple of taps and there's a cafe at QECP so can fill up bottles if you need to.
