Thames path 100 Mile August 2017

After 9 enjoyable training weeks running 488 miles since my 85 miles it was time to run another 100 mile. The reason for entering so soon was not to waste 6 months training and also to have a go at a self-sufficient event. This means that competitors need to carry all their food so 5 to 6000 calories to last duration of race, mandatory kit and 2 and half litres of fluid. With only 3 checkpoints to pick up fluid and an additional water point at 13 miles you were not allowed to receive help from anyone giving you food and drink. I relished the challenge although my pack was between 6 and 7 kg in weight.
