The Idle Banter non specific race ultra thread
I still swear by the Aldi socks and CORNFLOUR
I wish you hadn`t mentioned the Paddy Buckley because seeing JOSS at Coniston last Friday stirred an interest in a certain other Lakeland challenge which I keep thinking would make a Cracking follow up, off of the Back of the Lakeland 100, see already my focus is shifting from one prime goal to two, I must be more Disciplined
SZ From what little I know of you and what I read into your posts you a are Damned good at what you do, and now is your big chance to advertise and sell the one thing that you have ever truly beleived in GOOD LUCK with the future.
enjoyed watching mo Farah and Chris Thompson getting 1st and 2nd in the 10,000 mtrs last night.
Great to see Chris thompson pulling off the second place after his running carreer was all but written off through injury, just goes to show that with the help and support of folk that beleive in you and a bit of commtment fro yourself that anything is possible.
Now can they pull off the 5000 mtrs?
Just maybe Britain at long last has some class distance runners .
mo farah made it look sooooooooo easy
im a big fan of jessica e too...for obvious reasons
think eagles dare is bob on timing / distance fr..ahead of hp40
just about to enter and read this...

Tis a cracking event CD and you get to Visit Haweswater again, but you go over Nan Bield as opposed to Gatescarth TBH it is a real Gem.
Although you will visit Sadgill again on the outward journey then up throgh Longsleddale to the foot of Gatescarth Pass, where you turn right and head for Mosedale.
Think I will leave the route description otherwise I might spoil the suprise for you, Fair to say though there is some good ascending to do and that it is extremly runner friendly .
Sally Has been awarded two certificates on that one but she will not be joining me on it this year.
Must get my entry in
see you there .
entry in..thanks for that fr
yes..you;re name isnt on the list yet
ive asked for a route description but if you have an e-mailable one could you send it to me by any chance? cheers
Twill look it out and send it you if I have one but I have a felling It`s in my head and that ain`t emailiable yet.
I think you will find the route will be posted on there web site a couple of weeks prior to the Event., but I will see what I have at home.
I'm doing a LDWA event called Where Ravens Dare in October which is possibly not the same one as the one you're talking about, Fellrunner. I'm also up for the LDWA 100 next May.
Not sure about this Lakeland job - it sounds very punishing.
Punishing is one word to describe it, T Rex. I have just finished updating my account, which might just confirm your perception. The 50 might be a safer bet.
You can't go wrong with an LDWA 100 as your first (it is your first?). The support will not be bettered anywhere.
Hi seren nos, Pumlumon Challenge may only be 26 miles but the terrain is tough, with off-path tussock-bashing to contend with and some serious ascent.. Times will be slower than you'd expect and you may finish feeling wasted, even on a warm, dry, sunny day like it's been for the past 3 years. Treat it with respect.
Thanks Brit nic............from looking at the ascent.it seems to be comparable to the lakeland 50 but half the distance...........would you agree with that...is it simialr type of ascents and surfaces..........
My son did the walk across wales with me in June and managed the 42 miles but had to walk the last 16 as he was getting a pain in his leg.......I've been telling him that the hills on this one will be a lot more than the walk across wales.............but thats just a hunch as i'm useless at sussing out whats hard............
he also did a 27 miler with me around the beacons witha backpac on and we took in penyfan and tor - y foel.so hopefully he's not as unfit as some 15 year olds
T rex.........I might do the Raven dare one............I was gutted tat they have dropped the caerphily summits one as i was looking forward to giving it a go as it is my area and I had managed to recce most of teh route............
the raven dare one is the day before Abingdion marathon so if I do it we will have to travel up there later on in the day....
hey all- just dropping in for quick question for Fellrunneror anyone else.
Doing Beacons Ultra and Snod, this year......but off to Lakes for a few days on Tuesday. Prob do a long run before I leave. Staying in Glenridding and doing Hellvelyn and then easy walk round Ulls. the following day. Fancy running for a bit, but I tend to do out and back on the roads when I'm in a new location. Any suggestion on decent routes of 8-10m from there.
Cheers in advance
