I did this today also. I was warned about the start line and is on the website so not going to complain over this. The start was a mess, I was near front, at T junction we started turning left and heard (I presume from a Marshall) shouts of your going the wrong way. This was first time I have done this so wasn't sure who was right. Anyway we ended up going right in the end. From the first mile marker I was 0.6 miles out and stayed that way right to the end. I have since looked up the route and we should have gone left and it would have been correct. Ended up running 13.8m. I checked my watch at 13.1 and would have PB by over a minute. Will just take positive that at least I am running well. I don't want to be too hard as these are people volunteering for us to run but as it was so close to start I guess putting a few cones or marshalls blocking wrong way would have been pretty easy to do?
Hi all....I am in the Thames Trot 50. Put together my training plan yesterday. Bring on Feb 1st. I have only done two ultras and both were lapped runs so I can put all my gear in a tent. Will be a challenge running with all my fuel.
I'm in on this. Done two ultras so to speak (ThunderRun and Lightning 12). Both of which were lapped ultras so didn't have to worry about fuelling as could leave my stuff in the tent and collect every lap or so. Let the hard training commence in next month
