Well I'll tell you what, if you stop posting links to bigger and more exciting races I'll stop behaving like a dribbling eejit and thinking ' I wanna do that'  

     As an aside I had a nice chat with Mimi after the Likeys run about the 6633 and my wife has provisionally given me permission to look into it seriously for 2013, well either that or the YAK.

 Next year pretty much everything depends on the UTMB and you can take full responsibility for that one, if I get in it's that and the SDW100 which are my main focuses for the year, if I don't then the Glencoe 24 around the same time looks good

tell you what LI - I'll be your bookings agent and take 50% of your winning fees....

hang on - summat wrong there.....

20 years ago, I'd have gone for the 6633 like a shot but I'm too frigging old now to start on the nutty ones - I like my home comforts too much I guess

Did you hear the one about last year's winner who was disqualified after taking the wrong path from the last checkpoint to the finish line. He'd only been running for four days non-stop

Seems a little harsh!

Not sure I'd be taking any path at that stage

I read that the other day Dan but to be fair, the bloke admitted the error, and agreed that the DQ decision was correct under the circumstance - he missed a checkpoint taking the wrong trail. I wonder how many others would agree a DQ was right after 4 days on their pins??

story here

Ok UTMB entry is in but if I'm not successful I'm pretty sure I'll go in for this.
Has anyone from here done it or know anyone who has?

Wanted to do the TDG but failed to get the leave from work, so it will have to be 2013 now! the video on the website looks great.

Sadly yes, probably foolishly but I'm a sucker for a challenge
