Hello All,

 Just to let you know that entries will be open very soon, later than we planned but we had to find another HQ for round 1 which could cope with the numbers (it was a bit tight last year).

Will post when everything is live.

 Cheers

Same route Frenchys or something different this year? The thirty was a fantastic route but a little short according to my garmin

Hi Lirish, how is the training going, is the injury behind you?

 The 30 will be based at a different, bigger HQ this year, the route will remain largely unchanged but will involve a few extra K to ensure it hits the 30 mark approx.

The second half of the Ultra Brecon (UB40) - COLD will be all different (very little canal).

The Wye One Way 50 will remain largely the same (some road sections removed).

The Ultra Brecon (UB40) - WARM-ish will remain the same.

Hope to open entries this week, here is a photo collection which hopefully brings back good memories?

Cheers for now....

Thanks to everyone who supported the event, was it warm enough for you?

Thanks for a great event frenchy

A great route and really friendly atmosphere, especially sitting around at the finish drinking beer in the sun!

Doubt we'll be doing that in December though, but can't wait for round 2

Hello All,

Matt has put the final tweaks to the kit list and map which along with the entry list are all now on the site......

http://www.mightcontainnuts.com/events/welsh_one_day_ultra_series/round_2.html

Please note that the course does not always follow official footpaths (we have permission from local farmers to cross their land on the day) if you intend to reece the course you will need to use an alternative official option at these points, please don't abuse their trust it has taken a long time for us to get them on-side, thanks

Temp. was - 3.5 c when I left the house this morning, will it be another extreme one???

We are down to the under 20 places remaining, so if you want to be there, don't hang around....

Cheers

Hi frenchy.  Are there still places for Round 4?  Giving it some serious thought at the moment.

T Rex I'm planning on seeing how I feel on the Likeys 45 this weekend before I commit to going this if there's still places, ran it last year in up to 18 inches of snow and it was incredible, fantastic route, one of the best races I've done so far

Loved this race last year and looking forward to this year. I bet we don't get the same conditions tho.

Round 1 has been my highlight of 2011 so far. Just a shame I can't do the series. Round 3 clashes with TP100 but might try to make the final round.

Roll on December 3rd!!

Thanks Guys,

 Lirish hope the 45 went well, we have filled up the official 150 places but are taking a few more to allow for drop outs, not sure how long they will last but hope your legs recover well

 Cheers,

 Barry.

Sorry T-Rex, yes there are, rounds 1 & 2 have both sold out a few weeks in advance, we find interest grows round by round so you should be fine for a while but don't leave it until the last min.

Cheers...

Cheers for the heads up Barry, yesterday went ok, first lap went really well then I discovered I'd left my Zero tablets in my room so had to borrow some Nuun off a kindly scotsman on the course, unfortunately my stomach didn't enjoy them quite so much.

 Legs are fine today, fitness isn't what I was before injury but that'll come back in time.

 Anyway all that means I've gotten one of the last places for the 40 this morning so I'll see you in two weeks. I may even mean I get to meet *Dill after he's avoided me for the past couple of years
