OK Paul, I will give you some sensible tips.
I have never done the Ring o Fire, but I know from testimonies, that it is not to be taken lightly.
Focus on your marathon for now, but don’t be afraid to throw extra elements into your training, that reflect this race.
In order to have a good chance of completing this race, you should be aiming to work up to a 70 mile week before the event. You would want to be doing a lot of dedicated hill work, and back to back long runs.
I would also suggest that you try to do a multi stage race as part of your preparation, whether it is a marathon or a short ultra.
I will be happy to answer any further questions.
