Walking with "ame" this year. Walked it last year and "hobbling" by end, partially due to similar hot weather and not drinking enough. Will look out for you Rosehip - would be nice to say hello to another Fetchie.

The LDWA stage an annual 100-mile event. This year was the Elephant, Bear and Bull (EBB) in the Midlands. I have a vague idea that the 2027 event, which I hear informally will be on the Jurassic Coast, might be the one for me.

You have to have done a qualifying event. Here is the list of qualifiers for the 2024 Speyside 100.

18th - 19th February : Roundhay 50
1st - 2nd April : Shropshire Way 80k
15th – 16th April : The Woldsman 2023 (50-mile walk)
29th - 30th April : 59th The Fellsman (61 miles)
29th April - 1st May : EBB LDWA Hundred Marshals
27th - 29th May - EBB LDWA Hundred
15th – 16th July : AFoot in Two Dales Challenge (50-mile walk)
12th – 13th August : Shotley Peninsula 50 (51.5-mile walk)
2nd - 3rd September : The Bullock Smithy Hike (56 miles)
23rd – 24th September : Sussex Stride 2023 (52-mile walk)
7th – 8th October : The Laich o’Moray 50 Mile Challenge
7th October : The 40th Round Rotherham (50 miles)
21st - 22nd October : Cornwall & Devon 2024 Hundred Qualifier (Potter round the Otter)

I've always fancied the Bullock Smithy, almost entirely as a result of hearing Tony Audenshaw talking about it on Marathon Talk many years ago. Are any of the others notable for any reason?

Ditto the Bullock Smithy for the same reason :)

Also wondering about a qualifying 50, since annoyingly the Lakeland 50 meets the usual criteria but doesn’t count
