South Downs Way 50 thread
How do you fuel your way around this length of race? I occasionally have an energy gel or something on a Marathon. Do you stop and eat something halfway? Or eat anything more substantial during the race?
Personally, I would stick to gels for the whole race. It depends how hard you are working really.
No stopping for pasties half way round then? Shame.
I carry (and consume) Kendal mint cake, fig rolls and malt loaf on my long runs. Really enjoyed savory stuff such as cheese wraps on NDW50 last year and I've started eating some sandwiches, pasties etc. on some of my long runs (e.g. sandwich on recent recce of the second half of Thames Trot 50). Should be a variety of edibles available along SDW50, at the aid stations.
All of my favourite things. Thanks!
I'm in, I've entered. Gulp!
I've entered this too. Will (probably) be my first ultra. Up to 37M in training and looking forward to it!Also entered NDW50 and NDW100.
Latter. Yeah, probably won't do any further other than running my age (41) on my birthday next month. Main goal is the NDW100 so the 50s will be building me up to that.
The answer would have been the former had it been asked of me. Ahh well, plenty of time to increase the distance ahead of April- starting with a planned run from Southease to Eastbourne on Saturday along the route...
I've just entered this one.
Anyone know of any decent accomodation near the start?
I'm a diva.

Pantman do you mean 37m per week of 37 mile runs? If its the latter you're already an ultra runner and you certainly don't need to go any further in your training runs
Lirish - Pantman is "rather good" btw when he gets his mojo together. I suspect he will be in the top 5 and I won't be surprised if he wins it.....
Cheers Snap. I'll look into it. Thanks for the help.
