84 Miles, 3 Day, Multistage Ultra November 9th -11th
hi all, i did a little 8 miles earlier off road -short because im dropping to minimals - i think i will have serious calf and arse ache after 30miles at druids in them but hey ho , gotta wear em further at some point
james...you shouldnt tell them you snore, you cant blame anyone else now
Hi Sian, welcome to the thread - and to your first ultra! Plodding is perfectly acceptable in an ultra, and, unless you're looking to win, positively encouraged!
I'm only doing day 1, but i'm travelling a bit further! Coming from Cambridgeshire, via Oxford to pick Loulabell up LOL. Still, really looking forward to the race, although i've covered about half the Ridgeway, this start section is new to me.
See you there
Hi all, welcome Sian,
Getting excited now. Currently looking at the 'essentials' I need to take - may need a bigger bag!!
Anyone know how soon before the start we need to be there?
hi sian, see you there-blimey charlotte, you are prepping early!!! ive had a vague thought about what to wear if the weather stays as it is-but thats as far as ive got
Crawlers at 7......
Sian - thanks for that, just had a look, getting nervous/excited now.
do we have to register at 8am? or can it be later? i have a child to get to school first!!
Onlyl just found this thread too!
I also have to get kids to school, so don't expect to get to registration until about 10.
No idea how to train for this as am new to ultra. Did 9 miles yesterday on flat, 15 on ridgeway today and probably will try 15 again tomorrow. Not sure if that's enough, but it'll have to do!
Will hobble for three days if it isn't!
Don't panic - the registration cannot be at 8a.m as the pick up from Tring station is not until 8.30! As I understand it the walkers' briefing is at 9.30a.m. with their start at 10a.m., the faster ones have later briefings commensurate with their later starts.
