at the risk of getting told off again....does anyone know roughly when NDW 2013 entries open...
I would imagine they open at some point loulabell. Not sure when that point is. SDW enties open soon!!!
same time then maybe...
Lou, likewise I wish we'd been able to chat properly, but we should be able to rectify that at the Christmas Fatass! Not sure about doing NDW again next year. I really enjoyed it, but I also quite fancy doing The Wall and a couple of multi-day events.
Me again, Lou. I am still trying to get that link to Cakerunners working, with no joy - would you mind posting the full thing please, in case I am entering something wrong? Have tried adding UK prefix with no luck.
If you just copy and paste exactly what Lou wrote into a Google search box it brings up the exact place to goto as the first search result
I suppose I ought to post my what's next - even though I didn't actually run it!
Most pressingly it's helping out at Lakeland Trails this weekend, then meeting up with Lou for a nice run on the Ridgeway next weekend. After that it's Abingdon Marathon as part of the group, then Lou and I are doing the Druid's Day 1, Winter Tanners and Thames Trot...oh, and NDW - we'll fill in the rest of the blanks later!
Must admit Fellsman is tempting though... and I quite fancy trying to improve my time for a solo Yorkshire 3 Peaks... UTPD next year will be too close to NDW50 but i'll probably head up there and help out for the weekend instead...
Sounds good dude!... Fellsman is a bit of a beast from what I understand but looks brilliant!
Was UTPD self navigating?
yes Rosemary, the christmas fatass(not mine i hope)...where are we planning on???
Got the Ladybower 50 at the end of Sept,Dukeries dusk to dark in Oct,After that not sure,but next year looking at do some of the Hardmoors series [30,55],Have also thought of doing the Fellsman,Mighnt also go back to doing a couple of Triathlons,as i go up a age group,and want to do the Outlaw Ironman.
Outlaw is a good one, daytekker, I can recommend it.
I've not got much planned so far. Just a couple of trail marathons then I'll start to plan for next year. Thames Trot in February, and possibly the SDW 100 if I think I'm up to it. Plus Dave wants to do a two day version of a BG round, so that would be good.
Tiago - If you are thinking of a 100 then the SDW is a great one to do. The trail is one of my favourites. The 2 day BGR sounds like fun, the lakes are fantastic for running and the BGR route takes in some great parts of it. I have only have the pleasure of running the first 2 legs and some of the 3rd.
Plus I am always looking for people to join me on recce runs of the SDW
At last! I finally managed to get that link to work. My PC at home has some damn pop-up blocker that prevents all sorts of things working, this must be one of them.
Lou, yes that's a very good question about where the Christmas FA will take place. Maybe it is worth just like for a reasonably central trail event that's happening in December and us entering that? Not an FA, I know, but might be the simplest solution.
I'd be up for that, WiB, if you need some practice at going slow.
Or we could take 10 gels each before we set off and light it up!... A steady recce sounds good to me. I know a lot of the course but will be going over it at least twice more in total before the race to confirm it in my mind.
Cool. My nephew is going to uni in Brighton, so it's a good excuse to make a visit. It's all down that way, right?
Yeah you could even detour to the Uni easily enough from the SDW without much extra running involved.
Rosemary, i think us all entering a Dec event is probably easiest way yes.
