Just read the response you gave it a good go! Oh well as you say it was a good day out - I think this was my only gripe. What's next for everyone?

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?

29/06/2012 at 09:11

Yes, but it floated even closer to the back after the recent event, I'm sure it will come forward again soon.

Tiago, yes - I'm going run the Thames Path 100 in March 2013

Great race

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.

Looking at the winter 100 myself. I'm worried if I don't get it done sooner I might not have the motivation to do it later!

The Thames path - Stefkirl, I recall reading that was quite a flat course do you know if it is?

29/06/2012 at 20:42

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. 


29/06/2012 at 21:48

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

29/06/2012 at 22:25

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'm happy with my general energy and muscle recovery from last week and could well do my usual runs, blisters were my big issue and I need to resolve this if I'm going further

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.

02/07/2012 at 11:16

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.
