Cheers, I can't imagine doing Ronda. It really is a beast from the small taste of it I got on the little sister event! 30 hours for the winner, a bit too long to be out for me.
I would highly recommend Celestrail though. Not easy, but a fantastic intro to a euro mountain race and Andorra is just a great place to go.
Mitic, I believe, is the most ascent packed of all the races although didnt seem to be as competetive as I expected for a Skyrunner race. Celestrail and Ronda seemed to have closer fields in terms of racing.
The whole weekend is great and its amazingly well organised from start to finish. How they have marked 5 different courses so well over 3 days of racing is brilliant.
GKD has been lapping up his first ultra distance victory from the second they crossed the line
DE - We were around when the 10 peaks was going on. Saw a few runners on our run between Clough Head and Fairfield. Looked a lot of fun.
Just back from Andorra, the home of Ronda Del Cims. I did the bambino Celestrail 83k race... Anyone looking for a tough mountain race then get yourself to Andorra. Fantastic weekend in some great hills. I will definitely head back at some point, but I don't have the minerals for Ronda! Here's a little write up of my run - http://ultrapaulo.wordpress.com/2014/07/15/celestrail-2014-andorra/
I am with GKD on this. Rest until you want to and can run again without issue. Nothing is gained from forcing yourself back into training, give your body the chance to and it will repair itself at an incredible rate. Rush it back and it will let you know soon enough.
You cannot put a accurate number on it. There are too many variables.
