OK, I am a nutter! It sounded like a good idea while I was sat at my warm cozy desk thinking about what races I could do in the future. Anyway finished the Windsor in 2:05 which was not as good as I was hoping but will probably finish the Turbo X in 3:45 if I am lucky! Also have races booked starting 11th Oct for the Chiltern X country league.
Advice needed: Do you think it will be ok to wear a garmin watch or not advisable?
Will there be photos taken that we can purchase?
Thank you. I would like a photo as a momento of the day even if I dont manage to finish the course.
Has anyone an update on the state of the course? If there are just a couple of muddy puddles with mainly flattish hilly trails, I will probably go for some simple trail shoes. If it is knee high bog and mud throughout the course I will use something a bit more robust like my fell shoes. Any help would be appreciated.
As far as wearing a Garmin - I struggle to get good GPS tracking in Swinley/Sandhurst woods - so have to rely on footpod......
But have you seen Mike Gratton messages above (posted on the 1/9). He seems to suggest that there will be lots of mud and bog in the second half- Are you both talking about the same course?
OK, is anyone going to have to tape their shoes to their feet? I heard that we should do that but it sounds quite extreme. I am going to wear old shoes now but I have never worn them running before.
Well good luck to everyone! See you there. Let us know how you get on after the event - if everyone survives or not.
Odds teeth !
I've borrowed a mates number - before having realised the enormity of the challenge, sheeeeeeyyyiiitt !
- fairweather running is my style, nice an' gentile, a little rain if nec., but waist deept mud............ooOOpps!
Oh well, Swinley Forest here we come ................did Medmeham 10 miler last Sunday, twas a pleasure!
