Lorenzo, I've done a couple of off road ultras and the key things for me were
1) be specific in your training - if it's on trail and hilly, do the bulk of your work on the trails and up and down hills. Emphasis is on strength rather than speed
2) plan how you are going to carry (and access) food / drinks / kit and get used to lugging things around on your long runs
3) most important - get the pacing / level of effort right and do it from the start of the race. Set a limit, have walk breaks from the start (either planned or whenever you are going up a hill). It isn't the distance that'll get you, it's the speed you try to run it at.
