Just been looking at the CO2 canisters for re-inflating a tube after a puncture.

Are they any good, or is it best to get a mini pump for taking with spares on a long ride ?


Anyone know anything about heating systems?

With it being my first long distance, I really haven't a clue what I'm doing (pretty much like when I did my first - and only other -  middle distance last year).

So for my foray in to the Outlaw I am armed with the 20 week plan from triathlete-europe and will (no doubt heavily) adapt that as I go along. For the moment I'm trying to work out something about base-building over the winter.

I thought that treadmill was a swear word in the running quarter. Stop swearing!....

JL2, no chance at all of 'making a tit of yourself' at a Whitestar event, the whole off road\trail side of things is much more relaxed with the focus on the runners enjoying the experience, and the camaraderie is secodn to none throughout the whole race, and with a London time of 4h 33, you definately won't be near the back markers either.

Cake, I think the 'not hilly' is relative to the WhiteStar norm, so probably just means 'slightly mountainous'

I had 'issues' with my wonky legs a while ago, and I managed to get an NHS referral through my physio.

Basically she said I could go private, pay and be seen in the next week, or she could put in a referral to my docs, who would then pass it through to hospital, but that could take a few months. I opted for the latter and had an appointment through in a couple of weeks. 

Am also based not far from Warrington, but over the border in Wales so not sure if that makes a difference.

Yes first running this year, and I believe routes are being finalised as we speak, but as others have said will be very much like the Ox event last year that went from same area (but out other way I think).

Did the Ox Ultra last year and it was brilliant, throw in the cider and vodka at the fast becoming (in)famous Lovestation and one thing for sure, WhiteStar certainly know how to look after their runners.

I'm in...
