I am hanging on and possibly putting a very late entry in so an extra 10 places is ok with me

That will be for people disappointed at not getting in to the Piece of String

So what are centurion events like for course markings? Is there a lot of navigation required?

I wouldn't hang on too late wetter I reckon it'll be full within the week!

Really?! That quick? I best make my mind up then!

I was sweeping the first 55 miles of the SDW100 a couple of weeks back and I can tell you there was more than enough route markings. I didn't know the route so was following them myself without any problems. I can't speak for the 2nd half of the course but anyone who got lost in the first half must have been running round with their eyes closed!

I do really want to... dont have any other races planned in the winter except Country2Capital in Jan. I want to have a really good crack at Rocky Raccoon which is first weekend of Feb so I think the Winter 100 is just far enough out.

I am as ready for Lakeland as I am ever likely to be WIB. 

I suggest you sign up for Winter 100 soon, because there is likely to be a mad grab for the last few places!

I will be traveling down to Cumbria on the Thursday. 

I am staying with my grandma, who calls these events "Ben's silly long walks".
