Is this event going to be on in 2013?

Looks like it - call for marshals has gone out from the TRA.

Has anybody here done this event?

I would be interested to know a bit about how you prepare for and execute it!

I've done it......or better to say its done me !

Sleep deprivation biggest problem. and you certainly get the impression that this is a little different than the usual 100mile + Ultra.

Footcare of course is of utmost importance and I wouldn't recommend this race for non-Swimmers.

Hi Ben

I did the race in 2011 and wrote a pre-race as well as race reports for my club website.  Link to pre-race below, race reports are further down in the archive.

As you'll see my preparation was probably a lot less than many others, if not everyone else in the race, but I did finish! Would do it again in 2013 (having said "never again" of course) but as it coincides with my 25th wedding anniversary, I think I'd better be elsewhere!

Cheers for that!

I'm told its planned for early July

Entries are now open, if you are into that sort of thing!

Entry forms now been released. July 3rd has been confirmed for the event giving us 100hrs to complete 250 miles.

Now let loose the sloths of war !

Bring it on

Had to pull out at check point 2 - 52 miles ? witha groin strain in 2011 and stayed on and helped out at the check points.

Will be back for another shot.

Good to have you on board, ND. That makes two of us sloths so far
