Really appreciate that but I have just bitten the bullet and ordered a 500ml Hydropak so I shall test that and hope it warrants its price tag.

What a shame they don't do a 500ml. Just too small aren't they.

Thanks. Just looked at Platypus on Amazon, cap looks a bit fiddly to fill on the move. Hydrapack do look good but still expensive. They had some at the UTMB expo, wish I'd bought them now. Don't even know what make they were.

What make was it PC?

Seen those Andy but they looked like they had a screwcap. Shall doublecheck though.

I'm looking to buy a pair of soft flasks, 500ml preferably but I don't fancy paying £18 each for premium Salomon ones.

Any ideas on cheaper options please.

Thanks Guys.

On the expense debate, I know it is very sad but running really is one of the most important things in my life. When you start you have a bucket list of races, races you can only dream of. I am now in the position physically to enter any of those races and know I can finish. None of them are value for money and some are way outside my budget but while I'm fit and able I'm going to do them. Believe me though I'm not well off, I have a second hand phone, an old laptop and a clapped out van. Everyone has their luxuries, mine just happen to be running related.

Too true T, the one foot in one foot out technique is not good for your gait.

Yes Fido that was about half a mile from the finish. Nice bit of path, I was in bloody agony right there lol.

I personally don't practice walking but knowing I can power walk 30 mile if need be can come in handy. That's because I've had too on more than one occasion.

I live in hope of getting a 100mile pb but I know everything will have to go perfect on the day. This race definitely has pb potential!
