I'm thinking of doing The Wall Run ( http://www.thewallrun.com/index.html ) next year, from Carlisle to Newcastle along Hadrian's Wall. It is such a lovely part of the world (one i spent a lot of my childhood running around in) and I quite fancy this ultra running stuff so thought it might be a good place to give it a proper go!
Is anyone entered, planning to enter?
Has anyone done this before? Either for fun, or as a race, in parts or as a whole? I spotted an article about it in a magazine so was under the imporession that the race had been held before, but the website seems to imply otherwise (i.e. not having worked out timings/cut offs and needing to recce the course further)
I quite fancy doing it in 2 days as i think 65 miles in one day might be a little bit too much for me. But i've also never attempted to run 30+ miles 2 days running, so have no idea how i'm going to feel on the sunday morning with the prospect of running 34 miles with 31 already in the tank. I've done 2 marathons before (one at the end of IM France) and I've done loads of consecutive days of hill walking and the odd weekend run where i've done 12 one day and 17 the next - on the whole all of those hurt! So any advice on training/clothing/nutrition for this from those seasoned ultra runners would be most welcome.
It would also be cool if we could get a bit of a long running thread going if anyone else is doing it - mutual support etc!
