It happens every 3 years and its a fantastic route, great cake and loads of other food as well. Somewhere I have a route description but the memories include a punishing climb out of Lewes over a golf course, (don't be tempted to have pint in the real ale pub first) crossing Wiilingdon Hill towards East Dean walking towards the sea with the sun beginning to set - the section along the 7 Sisters to Cuckmere Haven was if anything even better- and care is needed crossing the railway at Southease in the dark. Just enter - you will get a route description in plenty of time if you want to recce - I just turned up on the day.
On the LDWA Hundred - and other walks/runs of 50 miles or more - nausea and vomiting is a common problem. Ken Falconer in his "Survivor's guide to 100s and other long walks" http://www.ldwa.org.uk/library/hundredsurvival/hundredsurvival.php recommends Bovril. Other suggestions are flat cola - a very common remedy, and milk. A different approach suggests that the nausea is a version of motion sickness - caused or worsened at night by the bobbing up and down of the light from a head torch. Personally I find that removing the head torch and holding it like a conventional torch is helpful!
What fantastic weather - well apart from the right handed sunburn. Great weekend. Achieved my (modest) ambition of not to be last quite comfortably - as a walker rather than a runner I was a bit bothered but need not have been. Really enjoyed the routes - apart from Weymouth front and a hold up on the bridge- loved the last day. Finished along the beach with the first runner pounding past me like poetry in motion - he was enjoying it too.
Should be joining you - however was up in Scotland all week - supposed to be winter climbing but absence of snow and ice meant it was a week of Corbett bagging. Up on Luem Uillem some "friend "says - you should be fine on this Jurassic thing so long as you don't get an injury of course. Immediately stumbled over the only tussock for miles and twisted my knee. Nursing it carefully!
