Dear All

Looks like I snagged a UTMB place for 2019? Anyone else get lucky?


Your first time? First time I did it (or rather failed to do it), was really taken back by the size of the mountains and the length of the climbs - sounds obvious I know but nothing in this country really can simulate the Alps

Hi Tunster.

It will be my second time. You are so right that there is little to prepare you.

This time i will spend much more time running down trails. And less time putting in lots of miles. My quads were totally fooked by the time i finished last time. It was harder going down than up!!

I also found some strength work in the gym really useful
