That should read Glencoe Skyline. 

Why does this forum assume that it knows better than us?

At 40k this is not an ultra, or even a marathon, but it is the first race in the UK that involves sustained scrambling. 

It it is probably a bit too close to Wasatch for me this year, but would love to do it sometime. 


Do you volunteer?

If you have never volunteered before then try it, if only to see a race from the alternative perspective!

I have never really done much more than 30 miles in training.  

To be honest, I consider a good 20 mile hill session, to be better than 30 miles on the canal.

Just a heads up guys, but some additional places have become available in this years Thames Path 100!

I swore that I would never do a 100 once, and now I am signed up for my eighth.  

People have a way of coming round to the idea eventually.  

What I would say to you is don't force the issue.

Wait until you have made up your mind in yourself, that you really want to do it.

Manchester is in the argument if you want a PB.

An engrossing read T rex, and a very gutsy performance.  

A determined mind set is essential for 100 milers, but the very characteristic that makes us suited to them, can sometimes lead to us pushing on when we really should quit.  

Always worth remembering.
