Race to the Stones 2015

Last year had to wait nearly 3 hours for a transfer to Swindon station having arrived at the finish at some time before 7a.m. (Bear's a waddler!) The barn waiting area was ok, but for someone suffering from hypothermia or some other problem it would not have been ideal

Excellent reason to enter!

Race to the Stones 2015

The reason I've not entered this year is though although the event itself is great the travel arrangements are a bit of a nightmare.  I'm doing the Chiltern Challenge 50K instead.  It's on the same Saturday, price similar to the Race to the Stones one day option, but this includes a shuttle bus to and from Princes Risborough station.

Hi there - you were at jelly baby corner on the 50 Mile Challenge weren't you? Tempted.  Mike's 50 Mile Challenge was my first ultra.  Due to circumstances have not been able to do it for the past couple of years but am seriously considering this.. 

London marathon - blue and red starts- how strict?

That use to be the case, but you have to show your number before you are allowed into the secure areas around the different starts, including red.  They won't make exceptions.

headphones earphones recomendations please!

By coincidence bought myself a pair yesterday I was so fed up with earpieces dropping out.  Expensive, but they do stay in place and I like the flexible, non tangle cord.

Hi! (Waves friendly paw).

First ultra challenge

If it's the ActionChallenge event then you do not really need to carry much.  The stops are well stocked.  A couple of litres of water should be plenty plus a small snack for the earlier stages.  Also during the day you will be going through areas where you can buy food and drink in a real emergency.  It is very hilly in parts so I would be reluctant to weigh myself down with unnecessary stuff.  The only thing I found that endlessly drinking water, especially from plastic containers, becomes quite unpleasant, so a small amount of concentrated squash to add to your water container might be an idea.

Right justification everywhere
