How to run an ultra marathon Part 5 – choose a good one

I’ve chosen 3.

I’ll start with The Green Man. An acceptable 46km with relatively little height gain. So it makes sense to recce the route. This section is quite easy. One big hill in the first 5 miles then the rest is a cruise. A great time actually. Recommended.

Apart from the unreliable buses at Keynsham. Luckily there’s a train station and a friendly hostellery for rehydration.


Then it’ll be on to the Cotswold Way. 100 miles over 3 daus I reckon. Fairly flat but a good distance.

Then the Tour du Monta Rosa in the summer. Over 5 days.

That’s the plan . Watch this space
