I'm one of the organisers (Rich Campbell) happy to answer any questions or share any gossip. Fire away and/or visit the Facebook page for course titbits: https://www.facebook.com/XTERRAUK
There is a privacy agreement with the land owners that we cant share the course before hand but as FB says, its a mixture of singletrack woodland (think green/blue standard). No mountains in Surrey so no gnarly downhill, its all fun cross country stuff. The run is quite a cool cross country with some real tough undulations and fun stuff like log climbs and muddy surprises.
Sam and I were in the trails today plotting new bits for the bike - I hope you like
Hi folks, just thought I'd chime in as www.beyondgoinglong.co.uk is my site.
No marketing or evil intentions to get you to visit, I'm just a one man who loves triathlon as a sport and writing and put the two together. In 9 months so far there have been no ads and I certainly don't make any money from your visit!
It's great that the competition has caught the eye of so many people as its been nice to introduce it to more people. My mission for the site is to cover ld and ultra tri in more depth, providing coverage and exposure for British and Irish athletes and elite ag and provide more coverage of domestic events. I'm also hoping it is a useful resource for triathletes who might enjoy learning about events and from the elites out there.
So no 'judges', no massive marketing departments working out ways to make money from you, no computer geeks setting up clever polls that block multiple polls... Just a keen fan who wants to open up the achievements of 10 fab performances to a wider audience and someone who gets a thrill out of writing and seeing people read their work.
