100 mile race through the Cotswolds
What's the website for this, Mike?
What I'd like to do is run the Cotswold Way (101 miles), but I don't know if such an event exists. Races using National Trails are increasing in number.

If you like road running then its one for you.
The scenery is fantastic its the Cotswolds after all, the hills are Brutal and frequent, especially 30miles - 40miles and a nasty one at the 80mile point.
The support is good with cp's every 10miles, but I would suggest if you can get someone willing taking your own support crew. Having them meet you more frequently is a massive benifit as you wont need to carry so much kit up the hills.
It was my first 100mile race in 2010 and one in which I will never forget, I am hoping to be back this year to have another crack at it, I feel I can race it this year now I know the course.
The course is fully marked, I did not have a problem finding any of the signs, I had a map as back up anyway.
I have heard some complaints on the course markings, but to be fair to expect a 100mile course to be fully marked is asking a lot. I was surprised that it was marked an added bonus so to speak.
