Hadrian's Wall Race Carlisle:Newcastle
Pity about the photos, it is always nice to have a pic to remember a good day out, and thankfully the ones available are good but quite cheap, others can cost the earth (£29 for a JPG from manchester 10k)
Next for me is Isle of Man marathon Jul, Gin Pit marathon Aug, Loch Ness Sep, Chester Oct, Rutland Water Nov, Liverbird Dec, Gloucester Jan, and then Born to Run Ultra Feb, did this earlier this year and really enjoyed it, next Feb it is up to 40 miles.
Depending upon how I feel further on will do a lakeland 50 or poss 100
Wye Valley marathon iin September and Kielder in October for me. Having my first proper rest for a couple of years first. Not sure about the next challenge. Anyone else got the number 100 floating around the back of their minds?
Yes, but it floated even closer to the back after the recent event, I'm sure it will come forward again soon.
Check out Born to Run in Feb 2013, 40 miler in Llanelli and a good out and back course
Tiago, yes - I'm going run the Thames Path 100 in March 2013
The rain, the mud made it even more adventurous. My brother and I were never bothered by it.
Spend a nice two days on this beautifull roads and hills.
special fact: never before I did a guided museumtour while in the mids of an ultramarathon.
special regards to the Manchesterman we helped to conquier the steep hill on the second day; hopefully you made it.
Also best regards to our fellow runners who passed us and afterwards where passed by us so that again they could pass us and so on , and so on
Many thanks to the rat race people
We had a great time

I was considering that one, stefkirl, but may be a bit too soon for me. Am tentatively eyeing next year's SDW.
Well done, Geert.
The Thames path - Stefkirl, I recall reading that was quite a flat course do you know if it is?
The Thames Path 100 is a pretty flat course, except for a couple of short sections where the route departs from the river.
I would hesitate to call it an easy 100 miler, but it is probably as good a one to start with as any.
Thanks Ben, and if you do ever find an easy 100 miler! well I would certainly like to see that, depending upon dates I might have a go
Any characteristic becomes an agrevating factor in a 100!
If it is hilly, then you work harder and make slower progress.
If it is flat, then you use the same muscles and your legs seize up.
If it is on roads, then it beats your muscles to pulp.
If it is off road, then you work, harder and move slower.
You get the idea!
I was marshalling the 50 mile check point at the SDW100 yesterday, it was brilliant and I'm defo doing it next year. My legs are still a little sore from last weekend, will probably go for my first run mid week.Graham, TP100 looks flat from what I've read on the various reviews (compaired to the SDW & NDW)
I've done the Thames Trot, which is the last 50 miles of the TP 100, in the opposite direction. It is very flat, except for some unexpected lumps in the middle, but I doubt you'd find a much flatter course in general.
I am seriously considering the sdw for next year.
Do SDW Tiago... DO IT! DOOO IIITTT!!!
Do you live nearby? I am running it next year so will be doing even more training up there.
Not really, WiB, I'm one of the Oxfordshire mob.
