Has anyone done the South Downs Way Challenge? If so, is it any good?
Considering doing this year, looks like good value at £10 with a free T-shirt and a medal. It's local to me too.
you do need to raise £50 in sponsorship on top of the £10 entry fee but it is still great value
im doing it this year - love running in QE park and surrounding areas
I'm thinking about doing this run as part of my marathon training - my only worry is if it's self navigating, getting lost, and running more than 20 miles!
Does anyone know?
Would rather do a course which is marshalled, or at least well signposted.
Signed up for this now.
Not too worried about navigation, The Staunton Way is apparently well marked and I'll take GPS and/or a map with me. Much more concerned about the early start!
At least with an early start it's an early finish!
Good idea about the navigation. Actually I emailed the organisers who have replied already, saying that the route will be clearly marked and there will be checkpoints on the way.
Am going to sign up for this - see you there!
I don't know, KateF - you could try emailing the organisers to find out?
I'm going to take a camelbak just in case.
hahaha - just checked the website re water stops and this is there:
"• FREE water will be available to all participants at the finish"
perhaps camelbak isn't too bad an idea!
Shame it takes place in the same weekend as the Meon Valley Plod - marvellous race just round the corner.
This one does sound tempting though, but, er, how much of a 'race' race is it?
Drinks along the way? Official times? Results published? That sort of thing?
I've got my number and some more details now:
None of the above bothers me, it's my first go at something longer than a half marathon and I'm after something a bit more laid back.
anyone no if its a route you can run spikes on ?
