Spine series? Quite tough enough and you'll not need your passport.

Thanks both I’m far from a strong runner but would like to do something a bit crazy I do think this is beyond crazy haha.

I do need something that’s not about speed or crazy cut offs you’re right lots out here to try. When I was in Oman they had a desert race which triggered the thinking then saw a lady who took up running to do the MdS this year and I thought maybe...

Really though I need to get back post broken foot and then work on some decent training and then look for a challenge for the big 5-0!

Thanks again.

Well, I true stupid runner style I have entered for 2022.

I am 50 this year so its a treat - normally I mutter spending £30 on a race!

Really looking forward to planning it out, and the training will be a huge challenge, but I want to take it on confident I can do the miles, so I can focus on the other numerous challenges it throws up.

First challenge I have is that I am currently out with a fractured Pelvis, but hey ho I am walking now- so hopefully returning soon.

Top tips welcome of course
