Topic - Highland Fling

alastairmac - on 06 Mar 2014
I am looking for a bit of advice from anybody that has previously competed in the Hoka Highland Fling. I'm scheduled to participate at the end of April. This will be my first ultra, but I've completed quite a few marathons and training is going well. Excited but nervous probably captures my state of mind at the moment. It's the logistics of such a long run that feel like such new territory. Any advice on the following would be really helpful...

1: How much food and fluid to carry ?
2: Do the organisers provide food / fluid stations or do you need to arrange your own caches?
3: if so, any thoughts on the best spots to be met by friends with food and fluid?
4: Is the trail pretty obvious or is navigation going to be an issue?

Any other hints or suggestions from experienced Hoka/Ultra runners would be really welcome.

Thanks
