Can anyone recommend one?
From memory Jans you can do a 50 as a qualifier as long as you finish in under 12 hours, was that or a 100 what you'd prefer?
Apologies, just had a look at the list of qualifiers and they say any race that's not on their list won't qualify. For what it's worth the coastal ultra is perfectly runnable with only a few miles on shingle beach to slow you down.
It says on the site of the NDW Ultra and SDW Ultra (both 100-milers with a 50 mile option on the NDW) that they are Western States Qualifiers. SDW is end of June and NDW is mid-August. http://www.centurionrunning.com/
For 2012, the qualification period has ended. For 2013 there are a few races that are official qualifiers in the UK. All of the qualifiers are listed here http://www.WS100.com/QualifyingRuns2013.htm
West Highland Way Race http://www.westhighlandwayrace.org/
South Downs Way 100 http://www.centurionrunning.com/
North Downs 50 and 100 http://www.centurionrunning.com/
Our two (centurion races) are listed as being around milton keynes but obviously that is incorrect. James.
I'm a friend of the Hardmoors series of races and would like our 110 mile (with 22000ft of ascent ) through the north yorks moors and down the Yorkshire coast to qualify for WS100 . Do we just e-mail the WS100 RD ?
