I did it a couple of years ago, as is my way I didn't even look at the course profile before I turned up, I was chatting to one of the organisers before the race, as you do, when she asked what kind of time I was looking for.
I said training hadn't been great so I'd be happy with eight hours. She looked at me like I was some kind of idiot and said the course record was 8 hours twenty something.......

What time did you do it in?

Took me ten and a half hours and that included getting massively lost on the return route. As CC said they're fantastic, really well organised, just don't do what I did and wing it, you'll have a long long day

NDW 50 CR is 09:20. You are entered... Away you go

That record is very beatable, Alice Hector smashed it and went through 50 miles in 08:23 during the 100 last year.

Really? That seems incredibly soft for a CR.
Sounds ideal for you or Daz to have a crack to be honest, I'm running a 40 ish in the Brecons the week before so all I need from the NDW is sub 10.30 for western qualification and I'll be happy

09:20 is the women's CR mate, but yes it is still very beatable as shown last year in the 100!

Men's is about 07:20. Daz ran it last year and came 2nd. Under the old CR by a few mins but about 5 mins or so from the winner.

I have my WS qualifier already, going to stick my name in the lottery for that too.

Exmoor ultra, good luck with that! Not done the race but the area is local to me, lovely place, a few hills though.
What are the odds off getting in WS? I will hopefully have a qualifier this year so was thinking I may as well put the name in.

The chances of getting a place a very low.

Yep... the other 9 sections of the forum is full of them. You should know, you started most of them!

Ah that makes more sense, I though a course record that I could break didn't sound right
