Maybe one of the hardmoors will fit in next year.

Hardmoors 60, if I can shift the beer gut I am hastily growing on my hols, then head down arse on the trails super discipline no distractions to West Highland Way 2013.

Those aspiring to the UTMB might have more chance of getting in than they think.  The entry requirement has been increased to seven points this year, which means less competition if you have the seven points. 

I have had a pretty good 2012 campaign so far.  I am signed up for Hardmoors 60, Leicestershire round ultra, and plan to round the year off with the Winter 100.  Next year I have unfinished business with the Viking Way Ultra, and will try for a slot in UTMB through the lottery.

 my main aim is Rocky Raccoon so wont do Winter100 if it will affect that.

i seem to remember you telling me about TP100 early this yearand suggesting i pop down and see the end, and me offering to marshall at oxford end in 2013 and to give you  a boot up the ar$e if you were flagging....

TP100 is in March Lou... my little mind doesn't work that far ahead!

19/08/2012 at 14:54

Spen71: which Croydon parkrun? I'm ED at Lloyd parkrun - come see us sometime!

I'm booked for Beachy Head Marathon end of October (so long as I can find someone to RD my parkrun that day) and various cross-country races for the club. Next year I have a GFA place for London Mara - thought I'd get that done. Main goal Lakeland 50 (wanting to run that is what got me started on ultra). Thinking of Winter Tanners (LDWA challenge) in January, tempted to enter Comrades. Thinking that Ridegeway 5 will be a full month after Lakeland 50 so I could try that...

Need to find at least one for Nov/Dec and ditto for Feb/March.

Suggestions? Remembering I'm based SE London/Kent (although I can travel) and can't do too many Saturdays.

Considering Dunstable 20 or marathon - trail, self-navigated, 9th September. Might be very good as a warm-up for Beachy Head- practice running faster on the trails than I have been doing while training for/running NDW50. Could get up at 6, leave the house at 7 am - not too bad. Maybe visit Whipsnade Zoo afterwards.

The NDW thread has sadly ended on a very sour note - much as it began, in fact.  I have the Enigma Gold Ultra on BH Monday then various marathons over the next few months.  I eventually decided to treat myself to a sleeping bag and mat to celebrate finishing the NDW, so I can do some multi-day events.  I am planning on the Pony Express and am also very tempted to do the Wall.   The Vanguard looks great too, as it covers NDW and SDW.  I'd love to do a multi-day this year, but I don't have enough holiday days left.

22/08/2012 at 21:41

rosemary, really? has it? why?....i too like the look of vanguard, really did love the NDW trail route and am going back very soon for training run are you feeling after your fab run at NDW

22/08/2012 at 21:47

ah. ok ive read it now Rosemary. a shame..and did the person complaining about the rubbish actually crew or run? im sure the aid station crew did everything they could with the rubbish and i certainly didnt see mess anywhere! i think maybe the person complaining needs to remember that it wasnt just people in NDW that were present on the downs that day. it was good weather and a lot of families , dog walkers and horsey people out too.

I thought that I might get in a cheeky ultra at the end of August, but I have thought better of it.  I have managed one five weeks after every previous 100 miler I have done, but the Lakeland 100 has really kebabed me.  It has probably done me a favour, because I had got back into that silly cycle where you do an ultra, then recover in time to taper for the next one, then repeat. 

23/08/2012 at 07:52

For me it is the HM60 at the end of September.

For 2013 I want to complete the Hardmoors Grandslam this 4 race series  will see me run my first 100 miler, as well as as 35, 55 and 60. 

My other goal is run go to Boston and run a PB at the marathon on roads. I intend this to be last attempt at PBing on road marathons. But Boston is such an iconic race I want to give it a try above even London.

Still thinking about Vanguard Way - temping with the start so local -  but not sure about recovering & getting a bit of speed back for Beach Head, and it's another Saturday to get covered for parkrun.

23/08/2012 at 09:32

I am thinking of just doing day 2 of the Vanguard Way as it starts pretty to close to home and would be a good long training run before Caesars Camp.
