Anyone done this?
..And try fitting in ultra training then!! Congratulations Tiago. Excellent news!
Nice touch, thanks guys. I'm very excited/scared, but am already on the case and looking for some baby-sized minimal trail shoes, and nappy-compatible compression tights.
Richyla, WiB and Ben....
I listened... I'm in *gulp* first 100m.
hoping I might be entry 111
I have no A, B, C targets. Just Finishing is my target.
Have done a 50, have three ultras lined up this year 69, 86, and 50m
I guess I could almost think of it as 6,7,8,9 hours per 25m loop.
actually I should think 5.5,6.5,7.5,9.5 and I'd still have a spare hour
A good target would be to complete the first two loops in 12 hours.
That would give you 18 hours in the bank for the last two loops, so you would have a bit of a cushion if things go wrong later.
sounds good to me.
All my plans for this year seem to revolve around being able to do 50m in 12h and keep going. I know I can do the 50 I just need to get the hang of keeping going, the old relentless forward progress, just keep on moving
Hmm, this new 'autumn' 100 is more attractive to me now. But I'm not of the same calibre as you guys and I know I can't start this one and be at the start line of the Abingdon marathon only 23 hours later.
I know the Ridgeway legs very well and should know the TP legs after May this year so this might be possible in the future.
78 places left, anyway.
75 now The numbers available always seems a bit behind when you click on to see the name of the entrants there always seems to be a few more in the list.
Any ideas when it sold out last year. very tempted but under the fizz at the moment with a few niggles (following quadzilla) so don't want to commit. Also reason intrested in this one is navigation which I hate. realise dark for longer but as never more than 12 and half miles from home easier?
The first 100 places went in hours, now it's at 133ish so not filling up that quickly.
Recce'd the 3rd spur yesterday. Never too early! Don't think I'll bother recce-ing the others until the floods subside. Will also help as I'm running the Ridgeway as well in August.
Richyla: Snap also doing Ridgeway, so that's half of it done in one direction anyway
Just entered. Looking forward already. Was impressed with TP100 in 2012 so back for another Centurion event even though they are a long way from Aberdeen.
Anyone got a feel how W100 would compare against a mid-March TP100 ? I understand that about half the course is the same. Do I need to come down and recce the Ridgway out and backs? Are they road shoe or trail shoe type of trails - TP100 felt pretty much road shoe till I encountered all the mud!
How does the Streatley check point work - can you set up a little corner of your own stuff - spare shoes, personal food etc??
Anyway plenty to keep occupied over the summer - WHW being the main event
I didn’t have any problems with navigation on the Ridgeway sections of the W 100, and I found them fairly runnable. I think that the event could be undertaken with either road or trail shoes. Obviously there is a lot more ascent/descent on the Ridgeway spurs. The central checkpoint is a logistic strength of this event, because you are never too far from your drop bag, and you can pretty much have as much spare kit as you want.
The ridgeway sections are really well way marked and centurion race markings are excellent. Plus there are runners on the out and backs headed in both directions.
*excited* plus I'm doing the ridgeway challenge so will have done those sections in August. great warm up for the winter100
