Painkillers and recovery

Ibrufen before endurance events is not to be reccomended.  There is potential for kidney damage and the evidence seems to suggest there is no benefit in terms performance enhancement.

Sorry - but you realy do need to see a physio or osteopath.  Asking for advice online is not the way to go.

Devil's Chimney Chase Almost 10k

I think the 'Almost' refers to the club name rather than actual distance.

Whoops - not quite accurate - you can continue on south side towards Wandsworth Bride, but paradoxically that takes you further from the Thames path.

You will have to come off the riverside at Battersea Bridge whichever side you run.  I prefer south bank to Vauxhall Bridge, cross over to north.  Head towards Putney (the path is sign posted, but I just head towards Putney) and recross to south side for final couple of miles.

I did the first one - chaotic, shambolic, etc. etc. etc.  Put it down to first time event problems and would be sorted.....!!!

Druid Challenge Ridgeway Ultra 82, 2015 (3 day multi-stage)

It's a lovely friendly event.  Transport from and to the nearest station included which I found the bugbear about Race to the Stones. However, you'll find the Ridgeway in November a completely different beast to that in July, especially if it has been raining.  It can be quite tough, but I recommend it.

If it's rain on Sunday then def. go for road shoes.  As for drop bag - have you got someone meeting you as I think you'll find that for the non stop the bag will be taken straight to the finish, unless they've changed tha arrangements this year.

Unless it has been raining heavily then I would go for road.  The terrain after Goring changes from clay to chalk.  Trail shoes are best for muddy clay, but lethal on chalk especially when wet.
