I'm really keen to set myself a big challenge in 2009 and wondered how realistic this event would be - i've run 6 marathons over thepast couple of years (a couple off road and 3 or 4 road) and a lot of half's etc and a marathon at 14000 feet. Is this something you can train for over the next 7 months or so? I'm running about 20-30 miles per week currently and does anyone know whether there is much need for map reading skills etc.
If this isn't reaistic (I had originally hoped to do Comrades this year but wife is expecting so can't justify the cost !) does anyone know of any other 50 mile mile runs that are a good startinmg place.
