Cake or Death Race..... how much ?!!! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes


That's one of the easiest coastlines Ed .... you'll be fine!

Goes within 1 mile of my parents house, where i grew up! Lovely coastline.

EDIT* Though picking up on your original point (that i seem to have missed Rolling Eyes ) that is a ridiculous price! It's low key, no frills ... but they still want nearly a thousand quid. hmmmm Shocked


I mean they're equivalent to dragons back which is 300km 800 but I think that has prepped tented villages and is an established event with media coverage and a title sponsor....
(Yes just checked, tented accom & almost fully catered)

Either way C/D I reckon self supported in less than 4 days for 1/3 of the price....

Also possible I still have a slightly bad taste in my mouth from the same organiser a couple of years ago.


The price for The Slice (100 mile hunk of The Cake) is 200, not cheap, but much better value on a per mile basis.

The title sponsor means they're able to do it cheaper. The logistics for this are not cheap.

I'm sure, but there's a lot I can spend the best part of a grand on.

I am running the Thames Path 100 this weekend, does anyone know what teh underfoot conditions are like?

It looks like it is warming up but it would be good to have some thoughts of level of show required?

I live in Turkey and trail running is now taking off here and entry fed are much cheaper than in Europe. TurkHotels are cheap, the country is very safe despite what you may here in the press. Hotels are excellent value. I have been taking part in a few of the mountain ultra runs including:

2015 Iznik Ultra
http://www.iznikultra.com/english/index.php

2015 Kackar Ultra
http://www.tahtaliruntosky.com/en/index.html

2016 Tahtali Run to Sky
http://www.tahtaliruntosky.com/en/index.html

2016 Lycian Way Ultra
http://www.likyayoluultramaratonu.com/ENG/

2016 Frig Ultra
http://www.frigultra.org/

2017 Erciyas Run to Sky and Ultra
http://skyerciyes.com/?lang=en

2017 Ala Dag Ultra
https://aladaglarskytrail.com/en

I am also planning on doing some of the other events this year.

These runs are through stunning environments with spectacular natural scenery, are well organized and the hospitality and support is fantastic.

Ran it too - so very very hot and then cold at night. 2 hrs 30 slower than last year and while I am not quite as fit this year, it was the heat that did for me.

Great support as usual from Centurion Running - 4th event of theirs that I have done.

Weighed myself this morning (Monday) and even after Sunday recovery I was still 2.5kgs lighter than Thursday.

While it is a super flat race with only 560m of ascent along the way, it is really is tougher than you might think especially in the heat.

Looks like YKK not only had a great London, but came 4th in the TP100 as well!! kudos!!!

I was on holiday last week with the family and did not manage to get any time to run, not even once. So 9 days with no running, eating junk food and my sister's wedding on Saturday means i am feeling absolutely awful right now!!!

Going to do some classic panic training with a super hilly 6 hours or so tonight, then try to get out for some quicker stuff for the rest of the week. 3.5 weeks to go and i am ridiculously unprepared. I'm ocmpletely relying on the legs remembering what to do, the pace being slow enough and my mind being stubborn enough!!

Yessss...... ?

I'm trying to do some more bicycling again but made use of my dead sheep legs for the beer ultra (warm and a bit messy) and signed up for a 6hr this sunday which based on precedent I need to cycle to (i'd do the 12hr but I don't fancy getting home after dark !)

A weird week for me. Did absolutely zero the prior week (other than eat and drink) as was on holiday, so was feeling pretty rubbish and definitely put weight on.

This week was my biggest, in time and mileage, since my race in Feb ... despite only running on two days!!

Tues - 11.3km run at lunch, easy- 4.41/km, 115m
Tues - 45.2km night run, 8.30/km, 2,000m+ elevation - out and back over the toughest part of the Jurassic 100m course at 'race pace' bearing in mind it's the last 30 miles!
Sun - 23.7km tempo/hard sustained effort, 5.07/km, 773m - tough-ish course, lots of hills, lasted the full 2 hours whereas was expecting to have dropped of by half way.

so 80.3km in all. Running about 16km today over a couple of runs, so that'll tip the roling 7 day total, so wary of that.

Starting to believe again now.
