Don't worry...those rambling LDWA chaps will most likely pull your legs off and serve them to you with a nice slice of cake.

Looks like I'll be buying some kit over the next year then...if I get in.  Hoping a couple of strong Lakeland finishes, a Dragons Back and a slack handful of mountain ultras is enough to swing it.

Dragons Back was worth so much more than ??750, I'll get around to the Cape eventually.

I thought this was going to be about Hardrock 100 or something, which has a ridiculously small number of actual qualifying races.

Just do a marathon, loads of super cheap ones on the LDWA site - expect to have your socks blown off by an incredible route and checkpoints.....and it'll cost you about £6.50.

I was thinking road book/ simple nav training as much as anything else. It really is a fantastic route sub 6 hours would be very quick.

Taith Torfean challenge walk is another great LDWA one too. I done it solo earlier this year and it's a super testing 50 that forces you into using a roadbook/map.

I'm pretty sure they're doing it as an event next year too, but as a toned down version, might be worth a gander, but don't burn yourself out before the 100.

Good luck MTri, I think it'll be cheekier than people think.

I'd swap Octobers Snowdon Marathon for the LDWA Where Ravens Dare, and the May ultra for the LDWA Rhondda Rollercoaster, both are much more indicative of the terrain....and with a navigation component.

Or better still, throw them in as training runs as they're awesome routes.

I'm still undecided on next year (apart from maybe LL100 again and Offas Dyke race) but really want to be involved in the SW100 in one way or another. Can't help feeling that I should be doing something different.
