It's a shame this thread has started off so badly, but there doesn't seem to be another thread for the 2015 race so I guess this is the right place to post...
I have just entered and am really looking forward to it! I was toying with the Ridgeway 85 but was concerned about getting the training in - this one seems like a more sensible option (comparatively, of course ) Not gone over 50 before and that was a few years ago so lots of training to do!
Does anyone know if the race organisers arrange recce days? When I did the Lakeland 50 they arranged a 2-day recce of the course, which really helped on race day. My navigation skills leave a lot to be desired!
Thanks. I am in the Channel Islands so have to fly back to races, which gets expensive, so I was trying to limit them!
I am now thinking of doing Marlborough 33 in May, then a 36 mile ultra in Channel Islands on 6 June, maybe South Downs marathon two weeks later, then RTTS 100k in July just to get me more familiar with the course (maybe in two parts), then a recce of the route over 2 days at the start of August.
Will have a hunt for the other thread. Have seen the 2014 one which is really helpful
