Hi Pudge... Thanks fir the response.. So if its unlikely you're doing the 100 are u considering the 30 / 60 or are you out of action completely ?
It's very likely a complete no-no unfortunately. I've not been able to run further than about 10 miles in one outing since May (funnily enough, after injuring myself in one of the organiser's other events!).
However, the route passes close to my folks house, so I will hopefully get out for a walk around some of the course to support you guys.
Have a great race anyway, and enjoy the scenery in God's country!
p.s. Lowrez - Go on, up to the 60! The 60 is a 2 lap course, so you can always throw in the towel after the first lap if you're going to be late home to make tea!
Hi Bernard - I did the 60 miler last year and am down to do the 100 this year (though that is looking very unlikely now).
It's a fairly low key event, but the people behind it (OA) are passionate about what they do, and so do everything they can to help you.
The route is really nice. Quite hilly but really quite scenic. No navigation is needed as it's very well signposted. There are frequent aid stations with food and drink, and the finish line is at a cricket club - which has a bar and serves hot food....luvverly!
Ghost - you'll probably need to order some more before too long, as they are pretty tasty!
TallGirl - agree with Duda in that it is preferable to make your own. For the cauliflower rice I just use a grater, and then chuck it in a pan with some bacon, mushroom, onion, seasoning and double cream - yum!
