Hi Everyone,


As most of you are probably aware me and Mr Ambroise have been certified as nutters and have quite a few screws loose after entering the London to Brighton 56 mile Ultra!


If anyone would like to run a section with us to offer their support (Or give us lots of abuse if you prefer!!) we would both welcome your company in helping us get to the end and a well earned beer or 2!


We could also do we some help as a support crew to help keep us well feed with Chicken Sanwiches, snickers bars, jelly babies, pancakes coke etc for when our picnic basket runs out!


We must be the only runners that out on weight after runs!!


The Race is in 2 weeks time on Sunday 5th Sept.


If anyone would like to help us please can they let me or Steve know?

Folks,

 

Dave and Steve did absolutely brilliantly at L2B today, finishing around 10h 54mins.. I think they were 26th / 27th out of around 200 entrants.

 

They went thru halfway in around 5h 10mins, and 5h 44mins for the tougher 2nd half, overall a superb performance in their first ultra.

 

I'd like to be the first to say congratulations, well done guys,

Hi Everyone


I recovered well enough now to type (Just) as my whole body was hurting this morning and I even had to leave the best part of a beer in the pub last night!


Special thanks needs to go to Dougie, Russ and Derek (Dougies mates) along with the family / partners that allowed you to run in relay with us for the whole of the race after the first check point . We both really appreciated your help.and giving up your Sunday for us. Me and Steve vould not have done it without your help pacing / navigating and generally kicking our arses when we needed it or Katie meeting us along the way to refill our picnic hampers so we could keep on running.


A full blog about the race will be appearing soon!


Jon you knew we were both nutters before hand! We've just proved that we have even less brain cells than you thought!


I'll need to find a bigger challenge for the end of the year now!


Any surgestions?


Dave

David,

 

I copied some ultra races from the profiles of some of the fetcheveryone.com ultra runners below. They have the month/year they ran them in, so I would assume they would be on around the same kind of time in 2010/11.  There are no doubt more...

 

52.4 miles Kent 50 Mile Challenge 08:12:00 55.14 Jul 2009 3

100 km 5th Ridgeway Challenge (to CP7 / 100k) 17:39:15 30.33 Sep 2008 1

85 miles Ridgeway 85 23:44:00 30.9 Aug 2009 2

100 km Boddington 100K 09:56:11 54.21 Jun 2010 1

85 miles Ridgeway 85 18:49:00 39.16 Aug 2010 2

100 miles Caesars Camp 28:15:00 30.6 Oct 2009 2

145 miles Grand Union Canal Race 41:05:00 30.6 May 2010 1

 

Alternatively there is the Brathay 10 in 10. This is the Windamere marathon course ran daily for 10 consecutive days in May ending on the Windamere marathon itself. It is VERY expensive though due to the support crew necessary to get you through it!
