Rosemary i love Newforest , we went there in May and i ran everyday in the week before the ultra i did at northants-i couldnt help myself! agree totally on running trail a lot and offroad makes running a flat tarac race a lot easier. ive noticed in the last 4 months since ive been off road how much stronger i am ON road.

sdw50???? yes id LOVE that to be an event. i think centurion did a brilliant job of NDW and i think rule of thumb is £1 per mile? so i didnt think £50 for that was much really  when you think some 10k or HM events can easily be £20-£25 and you dont get half the support/food or first aid.

we are doing Abingdon as Eckytump over on littlebitfurther thread has a charity dedicated to a disease her son sadly passed away with . its called Histio disease and is a rare blood disorder. we will all be meeting there and wearing tops with 'camerons smile' to raise funds.

with regards to London marathon i dont really agree with the idea of 'it should be exerienced once'...why? someone could tell you that dangling upside down over the Grand Canyon should be expereinced once...but would you do it?????erm.no.

That's very sad, I hope you all do really well and good luck with the fund-raising.  Have you all got a sponsorship page?

VLM - no thanks - never ever....not even if I get GFA...

The more I run in the wilds, the less I want to run in crowds... I'm doing Abingdon with the group for a reason...and it's that reason that will keep me going, not a bunch of cheering people saying "not far now" when we've only covered 5 miles!

There's only 50 odd entries at UTPD - perfect... solitude, me against the course....if I run with somebody for a while - great, if I don't - also great.

My happiest runs have been me and one other, through fields, away from "life" - that's why I run...

Rosemary here is the sponsoship page.. the group running are made up of myself, Rocker, and the others are from littlebitfurther page...Ecky is such a lovely wonderful  lady and does tireless work for her sons charity that she is patron of now...Cameron was born 2006 and in 2007 they discovered he had HLH a rare life threatning blood disorder, he was admitted the next day and began treatment. his older brother (only 5years old then) donated bone marrow to help save him but after  only 6 months he lost his fight...we wat to raise as much as we can from Abingdons run for them

Wow. I can't imagine having that discussion with a 5 year old child, or being the child.

What next?

Well I've got High Peak 40 in a couple of weeks. Third go at this one so might get my pacing right this year. And after UTLD50 feeling good to get closer to 7 hours. Then the Red Bull Steeplechase at the beginning of October.

The small matter of organising The Dukeries Dusk into Dark in October.....

Probably a quiet couple of months then start the year well with Hardmoors 30 on New Years day.

Next year I'm thinking of getting back to triathlons, but nothing above middle distance. A couple of trail ultras. Would like to go faster at the Lakeland 50. Maybe a small road marathon.

And I may even drag myself out of bed on a Saturday and finally get to some parkruns!

Lou, that's heart breaking and what a very special brother Cameron had.  I can't get the link to work at the moment, possibly the site is down for maintenance, but I will certainly keep trying.  If I wasn't doing the Great Yarmouth mara that day, I'd come along and join you.
