Hi, anyone doing this ultra this year? Anyone done it before and if so, what tips have you got?
Thanks.

Don't accidentally follow someone doing the Saunders which is the same weekend!

i did it last year, my first ultra and loved it. It rained for nearly the whole day but didn't take anything away from the experience. Although the 2 major climbs are in the 1st half of the race before Grasmere, don't underestimate the second half around Langdale. The second half I found much harder, although the scenery was just stunning. I also had family waiting for me at the Sticklebarn which gave me the lift I needed to finish the race. Mainly, just enjoy it, its a fantastic route.

Yes, I've watched a few videos from last year and it certainly looked very wet.

Have you done any more ultras since?

I haven't actually done another Ultra, although I have done plenty of trail running since. I did the Salomon Ring of Steall last year and have entered the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra for this year, which is currently terrifying me
