Paula, good running at the Waltz. You finished just after me. Give it another mile and I reckon you would have caught me!

Two Crosses Circuit - LDWA Challenge Event - March 20th

I used to do that every year until you changed the date. I've never been back since due to clashes and inconvenience (Sunday's never a good day with work the next day). It's a shame because I always enjoyed it so much, especially the tipple at the naughty corner.

Thanks for getting the list started, T Rex. I think I was supposed to be down for the double as well.

Snowdonia Marathon 2016

I'd love to do that SNOD Trail Marathon. It looks to be 'right up my street'. If it wasn't only 5 days before the Lakeland 100 my name would be on the list. (Sadly it would probably provide a more appropriate build-up to UTMB as well.)

Last night I put my name on the list for the Three Peaks Fell Race now that it doesn't clash with The Fellsman for the first time in a long time. Fingers crossed that they let me in. They have quirky entry requirements, one of which is completion of a road marathon in under 3:20. Dream on, why don't you?

Oh dear DE. That's putting me off.

Daz, remind me where the VC race route goes. I'm sure I had that highlighted to run a few years ago then it stopped and I never got the opportunity.

I'll see you at Kinder Trial. I can't wait for the updated list to appear so I can see who else is going.

BritNick - I would be so glad if you did the 10Peaks Brecon Beacons.  I really would like your view of it, how you go about running it, and in particular what sort of time you can do.  My best time has been 22:59:xx, which seems very slow for only 55 miles ...

Are you concerned about post UTMB recovery or work commitments in September?

Sorry T Rex I didn't answer this before. I'm concerned about recovery post-UTMB before taking on another Ultra. 10 Peaks Brecon Beacons is only 2 weeks after UTMB. Even if I feel back to normal I know I'd slow to a crawl prematurely. From what you say, is it a navigational challenge? Don't they issue a route description?

Yes Rob, it's Snowdonia Marathon. I don't know where SNOD originated but it's a few years old now. T Rex will enlighten us I'm sure.

60 miles? That's a nice healthy distance for a first Ultra.

I never did make it back to this classic event last year like I'd hoped to. This year it's moved to the same weekend as the Lakeland 100 so I definitely can't go. I hope you get a good turnout because you deserve it. Is it still pie and peas in the pub afterwards?

RobPope, nice to hear of another imminent Ultra addict (once sampled, must do another). What's the distance of the Action Challenge event?

DE, with your experience of self-sufficient excursions had you ever considered The Spine or the Challenger? I reckon you could be a candidate (cost might be an issue though?).

My List of Ultras leading up to SNOD is:

04/03 High Peak Marathon 41

12/03 Haworth Hobble 32

09/04 Calderdale Hike 37

16/04 The Fellsman 61

15/05 Marlborough Downs Challenge 33

28/05 Dorset 100

05/06 Northants Ultra 35

18/06 Pennine 39

16/07 St Cuthbert's Way Ultra 62 (possibly)

29/07 Lakeland 100

06/08 Long Tour of Bradwell 33

26/08 UTMB 104

03/09 Bullock Smithy Hike 56 (might be forced to give that one a miss)

10/09 Clif Bar 10 Peaks Brecon Beacons 55 (ditto)

17/09 High Peak 40 (ditto)

15/10 Round Rotherham 50.

Oh flip...........
