Hi all

Got a place in the 2013 UTMB (guaranteed from last year).

Many others got a place and running?

First year out there, have done the Lakeland 100 before so have a general idea what I am in for but was looking for some general kit tips from the more experienced and any general tips re: travel and accommodation.

Then more specifically I was wondering which waterproof gloves to go for and what type of top layer I should go for to cover off on the 180g mandatory kit requirement?

Gav there's already a fairly comprehensive thread further along the forum, if there's anything unanswered there feel free to come back and ask again

Couldn't find this in the UTMB thread, so apologies if this has already been answered!

But re: travel :-

1) If I arrive Wed evening will that give me enough time to acclimatise given that the race starts Friday evening


2) If I fly back Monday evening late and return to work on Tuesday will that give me enough time to recover? Working on the worst case scenario that I could end up taking the full 46 hours?

Trying to work out how much time I will need to take off work and it is looking unlikely that I can get the Wed before or the following Tuesday off work!
