SDW will be a great race Snap!.

Centurion events are well run and very well supported. 50 miles of trail run is never easy but is always fun

My spelling is usually worse than this so there must be something wrong somewhere

WiB - that's very encouraging. You doing it yourself? I liive nearby so I regularly run 20 miles or so around Shoreham, Lancing, Steyning, Henfield. It's a lovely part of the world.

Hehe I feel naughty now slane! I have a Nathan pack and it is great, really comfy, but wish it had the same storage as the salomon! Now if I could put them together I'd have found the perfect pack

I will be there Snap but not sure if I am running the race or not yet.

I live not too far from the SDW, nearest point for me is Ditchling Beacon so run from there a lot. I love running on the downs although it is really muddy at the moment, much like most of our trails in the winter though. Especially where the cows gather

please dont ignore me, sorry if i upset you all with my talk of backpacks.

SDW, ugh, always seems to have a permanent raincloud above it when I run 

Interesting about the storage. My feeling is that the more storage you have, the more likely you are to fill it with things that obey Sods Law. Would prefer a bit more front storage but I can customise this thing quite happily (and my mapcase holder carries quite a bit too)
