Anyone running and of the Centurion Running 50's 2016?

No I'm in Sidcup so not local to either unfortunately.  I'd like to have spent some time out on the course but it's unlikely I'll get a chance.

T Rex - That was pretty much my thinking, I'm not going to take any risks by trying to run anything long when I won't get any benefit from it.

I think for this year I'll stick with the 50's as well, I am tempted by something longer and would like a crack at TP100 but missed the waiting list.

That's pretty much what I'm planning on doing.  The plan I'm following leads up to the SDW50, I'm also doing London so I'll be taking it relativley easy between the two races.  Not 100% sure about the 3 weeks in between that and NDW50, lots of easy running and a couple of long ish runs but nothing fast.

I'm in for all four.  I've only done the NDW50, that is quite a tough course with Box hill and Reigate hill.  I didn't do as well as I'd have liked so I'm back for another crack.  I held back too much and spent too long in the aid stations.

Tempted by the A100 as well

booktrunk- Which company is that?  I'd like to do that for my attempt at GUCR next year

FWo - Thanks for the reply.  I've got that book and had a look at the 100 mile plan which is straight forward.  I've also got another training plan which I'll loosely follow as well.

I'll be doing at least two marathons and two 50 mile ultras in the build up so will have plenty of time to test out kit etc.

I've only ever ran as far as 50 miles in a race so I'm looking forward to seeing if my body will be able to cope with the ridiculous distance.

I've managed to get myself a place through the ballot for next year

For anyone who has done this race before, what did your weekly training plan look like, mileage, long run distance etc?

I'm doing it unsupported as I don't think I'll be able to get a crew together to support me, obviously I realise having a crew would be beneficial but have many people done it unsupported and how did you get on?

I had a look and thought it was overpriced for a 50 miler.  As Millsy said the Centurion races are very well ran and cost half as much.

About 10 mins ago I picked up an email saying my VLM application was now accepted, so I filled in the form and coughed up my 35 quid: I have race number 762. Exciting!

Same batch as me. #769 here.  Fancy doing a race as a training run this weekend. Gosport & St Neots halves are both full. Anyone got any ideas? Half to marathon distance, road or trail. 

The A20 Path 'n Downs Half + marathon is this weekend.  Never done it myself but I've heard good things about it
