Link below isn't directly relevant to in-run nutrition, but may help explain the protein requirement day-in-day-out whilst training. Less than many people might think. I can easily overdo the 76-90g I need daily.
The Fenix 3 looks nice, seemingly a broader feature range to suit the everyday runner as well as good off-road/nav features and best still first wearable garmin that would be useful to me. And first garmin watch that would make me trade in my 910xt rather than just let it die before upgrade.
From website when registration closed: January 6th at midnight, 15 785 runners, representing 84 different countries are candidates.
The UTMB®, is today, standing at 218% full, there will be a 1 in 2 chance of being successful in the draw.
The CCC®, is today, standing at 142%, there will be a 7 in 10 chance of being successful in the draw.
The PTL® is full, registration has closed.
The TDS®, is today, 84% full. It is therefore the only event which offers an almost certain chance of participating in 2015. It will not, however, have the capacity to accept those unlucky in the other draws (*).
The OCC, is today, 255% full ; there will be a 2 in 5 chance of being successful in the draw.
Sorry to hear that Cragchick, I'm sure you can find some great adventures closer to home and get something big in for 2016!
No problem. There is more than one hostel quite close to Chamonix centre, I only enquired end of last week and as well as Le Chamionard Volant, Skistation.fr and La Montagne also had beds for dates I enquired on and both appear to be close to the centre which is a useful thing for the legs 'post' event
I'm out there from late Monday 24th to Friday 28th. Might miss some of the CCC/UTMB'ers as I'm flying back on the Friday and guess you'll be busy getting registered, ready when I'm recovering, etc... but would be good to catch up with anybody doing any event if possible. And if your doing TDS then to have a celebratory drink afterwards (I hope).
And for the flights out Easyjet seem to be cheapest option to Geenva and only real option in the north. Better choice of flights if you fly from London and BA don't cost that much more. From Geneva its less than 2hours by bus/minibus if I recall and a few companies do the trip regularly.
