Beyond the South Downs Double

Where do you go after the South Downs Double?  Why does everyone stop at 24 hours?  These questions have been in my mind for a while.  To quench my appetite for more, I'm going to go that extra mile, well actually an extra 100 miles.  I'm taking on the South Downs Triple.

3 lengths non stop of the South Downs Way encompassing 300 miles and over 30,000 feet of climbing.  All this in a target time of just 36 hours.  Oh yes, I mustn't forget the 288 gates to negotiate.

The months of training are nearly at an end where currently I'm finalising all the logistical details required for such a feat.  Support has been fantastic from AQR coach Kate Potter and physio Anne Dickins.  The planned date is sometime in June 2012.
