Hi cougie. Thanks for the tips. I had heard that the final run is a bit brutal. I'm lucky to live within reasonable driving distance of the cairngorm national park so will schedule some hilly runs there and basically try and get used to being out for most of the day (something my collie will appreciate). I'll leave the road cycing for now and work on that in the spring. With regards to kayaking, I have a wee inflatable one that I've been paddling about on the river with. It's good fun!
Having been redirected to this thread, I have also just signed up to do the Scotland Coast to Coast Challenge. What tips or advice for either training for the event or things to remember/forget about during the event? I'm personally doing the 2 day challenger. I've done a couple of marathons and an ultra (however I am painfully slow) but only just started cycling. What do people do over winter with regards to cycling? We've just had our first snow fall so I'm not confident I'll be able to do much (comfy to about 40 miles so far) Good to see people chatting about the event already!
Hello, I have just signed up to do my first adventure event in the form of the Scotland Coast to Coast Challenge organised by Rat Race. Has anyone done this event before? Do you have any tips or advice for either training for the event or things to remember/forget about during the event? Thanks!
