Hi I'm taking on Binks 'Run until you drop' challenge and am planning to recce the Rideway in stages during wk three, and the south downs way in wk four of feb. If anyone who has time is interested in joining me for a run/walk on either trail let me know and lets see if we can sort something out. The Ridgeway recce will start from the east to the west end as Im doing Ridgwway 85 in late August, and the SDW reccee will concentrate on the eastern 50 miles in preperation for the SDW50 on 4th April.

Hi exflyboy, I'm doing the Ridgeway Challenge this year. Drop me a message with your dates as a recce would be helpful, I plan to do the route in 2 parts in July.

I ran the Ridgeway West section a couple of weeks ago (Avebury to Goring), and am doing the East section tomorrow, (Goring to Ivinghoe Beacon).

Let me know if you want any advice about public transport, water, GPS, maps etc...

They're all working on the West section apart from Hill Barn, (marked as Summer Only) which worked for a few seconds before turning into muddy, dirty water!

I used Elm Tree Cottage & Idstone Barn, the toilets at Barbury Castle were operational at 09:00 too.

I guess you've seen this list of water points... Link (roll over me to see where I go)
