I will be in the Arthur Newton 100, assuming I am still in any sort of fit state.

The MCN40 sounds good, but a few logistical queries:

1.  Is it reachable by train or do we need to drive?
2.  If the accommodation fills up is there anything else nearby?
3.  Are we likely to need headtorches etc?  I don't have one yet, as I haven't done any night events.

Good man Spen, right that's at least three of of, four if WiB comes along too.

Rosemary its not reachable by train but I'm
Icing up a friend of mine from a station nearby on the night, no reason I can't come get you too. The accommodation is a hostel at the start line, there's usually space there but there's also plenty of b&bs in the village. You will need a head torch but if you don't have one yet I'd be happy to lend you one for the race.

300 entries and counting for the Lakeland 50 - and mine is one of them!

01/09/2012 at 18:13

Ah well will do Hardmoors instead!

I am in for the 50 this time...

O crap I really don't know what to do now!

I'm entering GUCR, WSER and UTMB for next year with my fingers crossed at getting in one of them. Lakeland 100 was going to be my reserve choice but at the rate it's selling out i've got to decide now..

 Might have to enter and stomach the 50% fee if i have to pull out.

Well I'm definitely in for UTMB next year, I'll stick in an application for States just for a shot with the intention of doing the Laverdo Ultra Trail if I don't get in so Lakeland just doesn't fit in for me

*Dill*... you could always wait until entries are full and get yourself top of the reserve list. You will get asked about April time and by then you shoudl know if you want to reject it?!

Lirish - I am going to put my name in the big hat for CCC so am only in for the 50 at lakeland.

Hmm, now there's a thought WiB, Laverdo and States are in June so potentially UTLD 50 could be done

You know it makes sense! Go for it!

Have you got a definite UTMB entry next year from missing out on the lottery for this year?

WiB

The rate at which Lakeland places are selling should not necessarily alarm people.  The usualy re-open entries around May, to replace  people who have been eliminated due to injury.  This is how I got my place this year.

Yeah, this year was a bit of a washout for me ballot wise, missed out on GUCR, UTMB and Tor de Geants as well as being too late with my entry for wasatch, will need to be a little more organised this year

As for the CCC WiB I say go for it, if I could convince every runner to do one of the UTMB series I would, absolutely incredible atmosphere in chamonix for the week preceeding the race, the race itself was like lathing I've ever done in terms of support, when you get into one of the checkpoints at the top of the big climbs and they're playing the conquest of paradise by Vangelis you can't help but be moved

Dill

What if you ended up being selected for all of them?

02/09/2012 at 13:14

Ha that would be nice Ben but i have thought of it and i would drop GUCR and run WS and UTMB.

As for lakeland I think i'll leave it for now. Plenty of other stuff out there. Like you say WiB might get my name on the waiting list instead.
