New ultra in Essex and qualifier for Spartathlon
I'm the organiser Lirish, to prevent any confusion.
Hope you like the look of the website anyway Lirish. It should be a great race through some really beautiful parts of East Anglia. Would be great if you could join us. Cheers
I have got my eye on this event.
Think it would keep me out of mischief for the day.
This looks like an awesome race and looks like a pretty fast 100k. Hope to be there supporting, a bit too close to the spartathlon for me..
Just had confirmation from The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® that the race is worth 2 points towards all their races
Looks fun, is navigation likely to be tricky?
The footpath is pretty well sign posted all the way round, plus we have provided a gpx file of the whole route on the race website for download. The route is also marked on O.S. maps and we will probably try and mark any parts of the route that might be tricky / confusing. We want to make sure that this is a fast 100km race!
Pretty much the answer I was hoping for! Will most likely drop and entry in soon.
Nic and I tried to recce the whole route over the weekend, but were cut short after 45 miles when we ran out of pork scratchings and water...oh, and the mud had made it tough going. It should be much better running conditions under foot by September!

Just checked out your website, looks fantastic, I will get the London 2 Brighton out the way first then sign up for this!
I am in now.
It starts on my sisters doorstep, so I will take that as an invitation to visit.
Hopefully see you there Ben. What is next for you mate?
Will keep an eye on enties but a little way off the 200 limit yet.
Viking Way up next.
Helicopter tour of the route can now be found under http://www.svp100.co.uk/helicopter-tour/ It looks very flat on the website tour, but if you upload the kmz file into Google Earth and set the elevation exaggeration to 3, you can get a true sense of the hills towards the latter stages of the run. Enjoy!
Ran the last 20 miles of the route last Saturday and was kept entertained by a very varied run. There were one or two challenging hills but pretty villages, churches and a very flat finish past the National Trust's Flatford Mill made it all worthwhile. Am sure it would be just as pleasant if I had also ran the first 30 miles!
