No idea, I'd rather kick myself in the head repeatedly whilst singing a medley of One Direction hits than run dozens of laps around a featureless course.

Seems a long long loooong way to go for a 100k!

 

And it doesnt have to be featureless - last time I did laps I saw unicorns and pink pussy cats and marmalade trees

well it's just under a two hour drive for me, down the very picturesque A9, but even so, it is definitely not for me. I guess if I was to do a lapped race it would be Glenmore 24 (even closer) but laps just do not do it for me ... even with 'interesting' visualisations

I think I'd like to do this, the course looks lovely

I might even drive up, 504 miles each way

Thanks for all your varied comments  As always, there are many varied challenges out there wating for us whether we are runners cyclists swimmers mountaineers etc and we all pick our own. Happy to see any of you at Perth for the 100k/50k races,where the loop course creates a great atmosphere and  which is always a highlight of the scottish and uk ultra calender. Good luck to whatever challenges you find and  await you in 2013

 I also meant to say, that for those of you that think Perth is a long way to travel, it's only 1.5 hours from Edinburgh/Glasgow airports, and perhaps 2 hours from Inverness and a beautiful area to explore if you make a weekend of it!

I looked at the logistics of flying up and hiring a car and the costs are probably slightly cheaper if I drive.   Advantage of being Easter weekend I can drive up leisurely over Friday and Saturday and maybe get a bit of time to sightsee as well.

I used to drive up to do the Two Bridges Road Race

Last day today to sign up for earlybird entries for the Self Transcendence 100k/50k races  at beautiful Perth, Easter weekend March 31st  http://uk.srichinmoyraces.org/ultras.   An extra £5 after today. What's your 100k  or 50k time?

06/01/2013 at 09:01

Adrian - I don't remember seeing anything in the entry details re early bird discounts, or even how much the entry fees are.  But thanks for the reminder and I've just entered the 50km.

Why don't SAL give affiliated entry to UKA runners?   UKA and ARC races give affiliated entry to SAL runners.

Shades,-  thanks for entering . it will be a great day for everyone involved . and in keeping with its national status we have entries from Cornwall in the far south west  ( and now from Devon?) and Shetland in the north,   and all points in between..Yes there is a uk wide reciprocal arrangement re members discount.. if you entered your number you  will be entitled to it. will check your entry and send you  a mail  to sort this out for you as necessary  soorrry.!.

06/01/2013 at 10:57

Adrian - yes, I'm the one from Devon.   The discount only applies if you tick the SAL box, I did put my EA licence number in the other box though as requested.    I'm not worried about the £2, a cup of coffee at the end of the race will suffice to make amends this time.

I like the entry website though, nice touch showing how many places available for each race etc and to check the entry list to see that I'm on there.

Off to book the Travelodges now.

See you there Shades
