So the woman who fought against gender-discrimination is now discriminating based on gender? That makes sense. 

LONGMAN 100 2014

Yeah, I had reservations too about a new race too but they seem to have pulled off a few well organised shorter races so far. Furthermore, the one way to guarantee that a new race doesn't make it to the second year is if no one signs up.

As for the logistics; I assume that they are the doing the 35 & 65 events in order to get more entries so that they can afford to hold the 100. 100s are expensive and people usually want reassurances (especially after things like saxon shore). Either way, all things going to plan I'll post a review in Sept.

I agree with the consensus about Centurion. Exceptionally well-organised.. Great for a first time.

New ultra in September which looks quite good. Anyone else signed up? 

The 12,000 ft of ascent should be fun.

Steyning Stinger Marathon

I did the half a few years ago as my first ever running event. The first 11 miles are the same for the half and the full. Pretty big hills but on the whole the course is very runable. Do A LOT of hill training and you'll finish well. See you there x

The details give 100 as the size of field. How long does it usually take to sell out?

Good plan. I've emailed I paid via debit card though, not by credit card. If I speak to my bank are they likely to refund me, do you think? (apologies, I have never been in this situation before)

Also everyone, I emailed the race director and I got an automated reply saying "Your email has been delayed". Maybe the address has been cancelled? The plot thickens...

Wow, I'm glad I stumbled across this thread. I had no idea the race was cancelled! 

NDW100 2013

Good luck Debra. Knockholt Pound is an epic checkpoint. Such a great atmosphere. At least it was when the NDW50 & NDW100 were run simultaneously. Not sure how it will be this year..
