Have entered a navigational 50m, after a couple of 30ish ultras (one fell one canal)
And just wondering if anyone else had a number for the Hike, or ran it before and could offer any advice or inspiration from upping from a 30 to a 50m?
Do most of you do back to back training on weekends as oposed to long 30+ mile training runs? Or do you find 30m+ are the best? I've always ran approx marathon distance+ about 3/4 weeks before an ultra, or had long 6-8hr + days out on the hills in prep for fell ultras.
Advice on route choices you took between check points would also be welcomed
I have ran one navigation ultra fell race with a friend, and other navigational fell races but this time I'll be going sole in an ultra fell race, so tips on surviving the night section (This will be grouped).
Gonna plan loads of reccies, so I can try and be familiar with the route too.
Thanks in advance!
