just enough for the day, water bottles, clothes etc...once the day is done depending on the type of multi day, you camp, eat, sleep then get up and do it again.

Some events are self supported so you would carry everything with you including the tent! Others the campsite is set up so you just have to rock up and crash out

My brother in law has just finished a self supported 170 mile across the Grand Canyon!!! He had to carry everything with the exception of water for the whole journey!!

id actually like to run it over one but I dont think they do that? Would be a nice challenge to do it as back to back ultras

Grendel - no offence taken at all! Im always grateful for advice and im always learning It is hard sometimes to get the miles back up between events of this length but I guess maybe that is also because of the way I have been training for so long? Perhaps if I was more used to the longer back to back stuff then things maybe different?

I have always taken a scientific approach with my running and this is just the next experiment. I have tried avoiding back to backs, now its time to actively give them a go and see if there is a difference

I have thought about it but im not that great with back to backs at the moment. The group you are thinking of is Enigma running, my friend is taking on a 10 in 10 soon!!!! 10 marathons in 10 days!! Might be an idea to try some larger stuff in training and see how I get on.

Im thinking of taking some time off after Fowlmead to try and get fixed up and strong again. Lets see what happens....

fantastic effort JR and you have now broken mine too! Mine was a treadmill one so that means you smashed it even more! ha ha ha

Honestly im a little disappointed with my weekends effort but its done now, time to move on to the next one. Fowlmead challenge! We have 6 hours, I would be incredibly happy to hit 50k but lets see what happens im not overestimating this one at all
