Picking up on an earlier point: does anyone have any recommendations for gaiters? I didn't wear them for RTTS15 but did stop a few times to remove stones from my shoes. However I was just glad of the rest last year. I am hoping to do a little better and knock some time of this year (maybe spend less time eating carrot cake in the aid stations!).
Training wise I am 100km ahead of last years schedule. But I've dropped the delusional thought of doing the 100km in one go (that idea crashed and burned after my first 35km run this year).
I hope training is going well for the rest of you.
It is busy for the first 10km really as you make your way up in to the hills. Not so bad that you can't make your way through the 'crowds' if you want to. There was/is one bottleneck where you go through a narrow gap in the woods and then through a kissing gate. There are a couple of other pinch points where you can only really run two abreast, but otherwise you should be able to find and keep your own pace.
I ran it last year with my wife. It's easily the best event I have ever done for a whole host of reasons. I am sure you will love it.
