Transvulcania looks awesome. I would be tempted depending on cost as I want to go out to the states again.

28/02/2013 at 15:06

well, theres a year to look into it. im up for it.

28/02/2013 at 15:07

entry to either isnt much.

28/02/2013 at 15:07

im only doing it for the tan

28/02/2013 at 15:37

I will ask someone who goes over this year about it and see what they say... I want another US buckle so will save some cash for that next year.

get lots on info from them

28/02/2013 at 17:06

I quite fancy the Dragons Back actually ... I have also got a great suntan on many occasions in Wales ... I guess if you go somewhere enough times and all that

cragc, i have a stripey kind of tan and wind tan all year round- i think thats maybe how you can spot an ultra runner..either that or the tan thats actually dirt/dust from the trail

came back from Ridgeway last summer with various marks and tan lines so yes indeed you can get a running tan in uk -but i could achieve a better one in gran canaria lol

Crag that was rust!

28/02/2013 at 20:14

nope - definitely tan , but also plenty of rust!

and yes, I have that wind/weather/sun tan from the neck up too   We get lots of sun up here, it just ain't that warm

touie!!! nooooooooooooooooooo

Physio thinks ill be fine for the 100 in June as long as im good, but I'm going to miss a lot of training and probably both my march ultras and maybe my April marathon
02/03/2013 at 09:38
Rest up Touie. The 100 is surely more important so good news you will be back for that. Which races did you have lined up?
02/03/2013 at 09:41
I had the new forest 50k on march 10th but have transferred my entry to a friend for that

Cts Sussex ultra on 23rd march, not sure what to do about that yet

And Blackpool marathon on 7th April I'm hoping ill be ok for this, no uneven ground or mud to slide on!

i fancy the pony express 3 day ultra - its in Brockenhurst where we have stayed in a cottage 3 years running-lovely there and i ran every day there last year the week before my first ultra

02/03/2013 at 18:03
Pony express xnrg? It's only 2 days and only 30 per day. I'm doing it as have never been there and sounds like a nice run through the woods.
02/03/2013 at 19:33

is it 2 days? my apologies jeremy, i half read thingsthats how i end up doing these runs!  30 per day is good, same as the Druids set up i guess as with same peeps. they seem pretty good at their organising.

its lovely there but everyday i ran i could be sure i had to navigate around the ponies, and rather large horned cows

I fancied the pony express too but not sure I can justify the cost at the moment with everything else I've entered
