Race to the Stones 2015

Going home for the night is a good plan.

First ultra for me too. For me, there was no way on earth I was going to spend a night in a tent after having run 50K and then get up and run another 50K. My reasoning for going for non stop is that stopping will just make me seize up, I wouldn't sleep anyway and so, I might as well just keep going.

Having said all that, I like the idea of back to back marathons in the build up so will have to see if there are any local ones where I can do that.

We will see who made the best choice!

It's pretty piss poor really. I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't happen. If it does, I hope all this arsing around isn't indicative of the way the actual event runs. I think that if they haven't sorted it out this week, I'll start thinking about a different event.

Thanks, just checked the Facebook page. Looks like that's where they put all of the updates and do nothing on Twitter, Website or email!

Where did you hear that IGIT? Website is still saying dates TBC.

I did see on Twitter about three weeks ago that they were going to announce dates within a fortnight, but not heard anything since. Starting to wonder if it's definitely on as I did hear rumours of Carphone Warehouse pulling sponsorship.

If you don't want to spend much, I'd recommend the alpkit gamma. I have one and it's pretty comfortable and provides a decent light.

Thanks Vincent. I just want registration to open so I can sign up. I don't feel I can focus on it until I'm officially in!

Greatest strength as an athlete

Andrew Thomas, I am the complete opposite to you. I labour up hills (I do a lot of hillwork though, and am definitely improving) but I fly down them at a dangerous pace. I do a lot of overtaking downhill in races. The way I see it, it's free speed!

It says non navigational and that it has "shocking inclines that ALMOST have you on your hands and knees" so no climbing either, although if the ground underfoot is particularly icy or snowy, I'm guessing you'd have a bit of scrambling to do.

Is Costo-Sternal syndrome similar to costochondritis do you know? I had a touch of that a few years back. It didn't last too long and luckily, hasn't returned.
