I'm in again !!
JeremyG yes & yes excellent
Now I'm looking forward to 26 weeks of training .................
First training run today!!! Back in the zone, but still can't feel some toes from the UTSW 2 weeks ago :-/
Already signed up for the TT50 again as the warm up for this.
Less than 50 places left now.
Havin done both i would say this was harder than the SDW for a few good reasons.
(a) Running on the flat for all that time using the same muscle groups is a killer on the legs.
(b) The temptation to go off too fast is hard to resist as the trail at the beginning is so runable.
(c) The night section is bleak and a total head f**k
(d) The last 15/20 mile is a horrible rutted trail.
All adds to the fun tho and i can't wait.
Did it last year, I surprisingly enjoyed the night section, but found the run (haha!) in from Abingdon very hard work in the rain. I'm not doing it next year, but am likely to offer my services as a marshal/helper so I can sit there and laugh at all of you
I'm in again too .
I loved the night section, it was the best part of the run for me. However, Sunday morning sliding around in the mud and trying not to come down with hypothermia was bleak as f**k .
I'm back to see to some unfinished business with that last 9miles .
Hi Jeremy - I'm in too. Technically my first 100, but I'm doing the Ring o'Fire at the end of August - 130 miles, but cheating by spreading it over 3 days. And ditto the comment above about having to plan ahead - RoF only has a field of 100 and they were already accepting 2013 entrants several months before the 2012 event. I want to try my hand at a lottery place for one of the big events, but if I don't get through (which is very likely), I'll probably be too late to get back in the RoF. Hmmmmm.....
Obviously there is no such thing as an easy 100, and any characteristic can turn into an aggravating factor over that distance.
The important thing for your first 100, is probably to pick one that is well supported and well marked, so that all you have to worry about is getting across the finish line.
In that sense, the TP100 is as good as any.
My first 100 and really looking forward to it. Step up from a couple of Comrades to what I know will be a very different experience.
Only 12 places left...
...and SOLD OUT!
Is anyone doing / or done in previous years, the toad challenge to recee the route? I'm guessing it's the same thames path route (just in reverse and not quite as far?). I'm tempted... can anyone recommend it?
