The Exe to Axe is on 1st April (Sidmouth Running Club). Anyone out there interested in the double.??? Thats 2X 20 miles of serious cliff running. The race normally takes approx 4 hrs so the loose plan would to allow 7 hrs for the first half ,eat breakfast then join the main race for the return to Axmouth.( Yes that does mean starting in the middle of the night).
Another option would be to start at Sidmouth making it a 30 mile run in total.
This method can be applied to many other races giving you the training to cruise for half an Ultra then put in race effort for the second half.
