I haven’t done an event this long before, how hard will it be?
Sunday 12th May 2013
The course is planned so that a team who have prepared well, who navigates competently and employs sensible strategies in terms of pace, sleep and nutrition, will complete the entire course in the time provided. Teams who underestimate the difficulty of this event and who fail to prepare properly are in for a rude awakening. Teams should also be aware that the weather can play a huge part in the difficulty of a long event and they should factor that into their kit and planning. We are not going to sugar coat the answer and the fact is, to complete the course in the time allowed, means that you need to be mentally and physically strong, you need good team dynamics and you should know how to operate in the wilderness.
