Thanks Bear and way2slow.
SVP100 looks good but it's quite a bit further away from me. Race to the Stones finish at Avebury is only just over an hour from my house, whereas the finish for SVP100 is more like four hours. After running 100K, I reckon that's going to be very important!
Actually, the chatting to other runners thing isn't that big a sell for me. I'm quite happy having short chats and a bit of cameraderie but would definitely not want to have to make small talk for hours on end. I got chatting to someone near the start of my last marathon and, although she was very nice, I couldn't face chatting for the duration as I really felt I needed to focus inwards a bit. I had to make an excuse to go off to the portaloos to avoid awkwardness!
Anybody else planning a crack at Race to the Stones this year?
