Thanks T Rex - not planning to run the whole thing, the event seems more geared towards walkers so will be confident implementing a run/walk strategy.

That was my plan for training, essentially a marathon training plan (and a bit) but with walk breaks.

Did 30 miles on Sunday split as a half marathon in the morning and a 16 mile trail race in the afternoon (the extra mile was back to the car after the half)

Had to run rather faster in half than I wanted to, so I could make the 2nd race. Ran that relatively hard too as when my legs are knackered I just want to get it over with.

Overall 30 miles in about 4:10.

Compton 40 on Saturday which will be a very steady plod aiming for about 7:15
