Great run and as ever, great report. Runultra do some good articles on training for them, walking up hills is a critical part of it. :D

Cheers mate, will definitely have a look. I'm running it with the same guy I did the 24hrs with and we've already had 'the talk' (walking up the hills from the start).

It takes a great deal of pride swallowing to walk up hills from the start especially when you're feeling fresh, but it's the long-term strategy especially when you're overtaking those who went out too fast initially...

Think my ego is going to take a kicking either way, walk the hills from the get go or run and detonate.

Sitting here the first option is the one to go for, guess we'll see what happens.

Bit of shameless vote gathering, I've been nominated for the Running Awards Personal Blog. If you have a spare couple of minutes to vote that would be ace. Link is below:
