Just noticed that Aura has on the web site the official date for C2K.
12th December 2008.

Horrie should be excited, I know I am.
Kev say's "i'm excited" maybe not big kev but what can you do.

I'm definitely considering giving it a crack this year. But have lots of running to do between now and then. My biggest problem would be getting a crew organised from over there, it might be a bit much to ask some of my regulars to fly over east to crew for me.

The Western Invasion has begun :rolleyes:

I don't know if I am excited Brick but it's nice to know we have an official date. It makes it easier to make all the necessary arrangements.

We need a designated sleep counter. That's when the excitement starts to build. :rolleyes:

255 sleeps
And the date doesn't clash with Ironman WA which i had thought about doing although my swimming (read near drowning) currently leaves much to be desired.
Also have an exam early Dec (date TBA) so we'll have to see how things pan out.

the end of year is going to be bussy.

there are 3 world championships from end of october to mid december :

100km, 24H, 50km mountain

and there is also Colac,

so some of the better runners will have to be selective (after being selected ) ?

for details go to aura page.

Plan to give it a crack - having survived my 162K run this weekend the first question I was asked by a TV reporter after the run was
"Well whats next" - I answered I would like to give coast to Kosi a crack.
So if the body stays together and I can get a crew together, boy do I know how important a good crew is after brettsrunforcanteen.
Anyway for now I'm on the possible list

Spud,
You've taken the words right out of my mouth. Now with my year sorted racewise, Badwater followed by Trans Gaule then home i'd like to think i have recovery time. Of course i may go back to this thread in September and say something else  :rolleyes: ,

Here's a little Google Earth file to see the course with. It's mostly accurate but a little unsure around Dalgety. The imagery from Google is still a bit blurred around there.

If you can also forego the 'pitstop' at the Big Dead Tree this year then you might not have to chase sportsman to the finish line  :rolleyes:

Add Maggot to the list of probably almost most-definitely's :) . I'm kinda holding back until after the Adelaide Sri Chinmoy 24hour track run to see how I pull up after that, as it will be my 24 hour run debut.

Hey RMC, Dont know if I'll ever be on track, my friends say I must be off the rails even attempting something like this.
None the less, Its still very much my plan to be there and introduce myself to the course, hopefully all of it.
As for lead up events,
10K Olympic Dream this Sunday Sub 45min hopefully
Aug 3rd - BRT Run both ways 68K, sub 8h
Aug 24th - The Tan Ultra 100K sub 12h
Sept ??
Oct 12th Melbourne Marathon Sub 4h
Nov 2nd Portland Marathon Sub 4h
Dec 12th C2K - Survive

His lead up runs for the rest of the year are:

Trailwalker 29/8
Glasshouse 100km 13/9
Adelaide 24hr 3/10
GNW 100km 9/11

As Spud would say, Giddyup.............. :)

Nice one Belinda, I've noticed Horrie is pretty focused on C2K. I have a feeling we'll have a huge field this year.

My crew have tentatively accepted again this year. Looking forward to the mammoth once again.
Different tactics this year, hopefully resulting in a faster ascent from Jindabyne. :)

Giddyup!

Yep should be there, just need to get some DTI points. This is difficult with August coming up, running every other weekend, but I am sure we can manage something. I am heading down to Tumut on Monday to my in-laws farm. Am looking for cattle prods and whips as part of the "different tactics". Sure to be effective and minimum effort require by me as I can sit in the car.

Looking forward to it.

Shaz (MrsMetronome) is a maybe.  We will confirm or otherwise after the 20th of October.  It would be a heck of a way to end the year.  Looking like a big field.

And MrsMetronome's 'training' will consist of Caboolture 24hr (29/30 August) and Korea 24hr (19/20 October)

Horrie you only know the half of it....but what happens on the road/trail stays on the road/trail. With one exception given that we were all treated to Blue Dog's chafing issues two years ago  :D

Maybe there should be a separate thread for crew motivational tactics?!

Horrie,with your races to date you will get there as long as you don't get injured.The rest is determination.Remember for most of us this event is more about pushing forward than running.I'm looking forward to it again.Touch wood that I get there.Many a slip twixt etc.Hoping for as good a finish as last year.Sorry if I keep bringing it up, but running events don't get much better than racing the last 3ks after having already done 243.

I'll add that I reckon 40 hours is the C2K equivalent of 24 hours over 100 miles.I passed 100 miles last year a breath under 23 hours and pushed mostly hard all day for 38 hours.Unfortunately I reckon that's a PB for me and it's all downhill from here.Punnnn!

I'm lucky to have my same crew this year.Boonarga has organised someone other than Ann as they would probably fight too much.

Do 24hrs Tim and I'll buy you a coke.  :)

Imagine doing C2K in July.  :D

Gee, would that be like buying someone a beer if they beat you at 6 Ft Track?

That's pretty low Whippet considering I was feeling crook in the car after the race and you had gone when I turned up. Turn up at C2k this year and I'll buy you 2.

Now where's the fun in that? I wouldn't be able to tease you anymore. :)
I don't plan on running C2K again this year. But if you finish I'll buy YOU a beer next time I see you. You will have earned it. :D

Most of us do. Blisters, if they are bad enough, might slow you down. But they shouldn't ever stop you.
As for any other pains the old saying is "if you aren't hurting at some stage in an Ultra then you aren't doing it right".
or something like that!

The simple answer is look after your feet and opt for prevention rather than waiting until small problems become disasters.

This means different things for different runners: well fitting shoes, cutting out the toe box of the shoe, taping vulnerable spots, vaseline/Sportshield/Bodyglide, toe socks, Blisterblock, etc.

Double socks.
Thin liner sock (available paddy pallin and other outdoor stores) with normal sock over top.
Still get occasional blister but nothing too bad.
