I have now done 2 marathons and would like to look into an ultra, I know that it will seem very small in comparison to other ultra's here. A 50km, or a 30 mile. Im looking at doing something in 2012. I have looked at the London Ultra 50km.
I don't really know much about this type of race, but always up for pushing myself that little bit more but am being a bit put off by the whole kit list and map things that I keep reading about on websites when you enter.
The London ultra, do you need to map read really well or is this a precaution. I understand you need extra stuff etc as you will be running further but for the smaller runs is this all necessary.
Has anyone got any tips, advice or even ideas for good ultras for a beginner, before she takes the plunge
