I finally settled on my summer ultra event… Drumroll please….
Race To The Stones
It’s a 100km event along the oldest pathway in Britain. Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July.
Stunning scenery. Right time of the year for a good chance of clement weather.
It’s well supported with aid every 10km. Hot food at the half-way point.
Running to the standing stones at Avebury.
It’s the first year of the event but it’s being run by a team that has run cycling events in the past, it looks like they know what they’re doing.
They’re offering a couple of options. Option 1 – run the whole thing non-stop. Option 2 – run it over 2 days, with camping provided at half-way. Hot showers, your own 1 man tent, beer tent, food, music, beer, oh and did I mention they’ll have beer.
So obviously I’ve signed up for option 1. It certainly gives a focus to my training now.
I can’t wait.
