No, I'm booked off work to run the Causeway Ultra the week before, and hopefully the MMM 2 weeks before that. October is recovery month before the long winter training starts in.

Good luck in the causeway ultra. I have done the causeway marathon and it's one of the best locations I have ran. Tough enough course and more elevation than you'd think. White rocks is a long Aul slog on the ultra I am told.

Cheers. I have no idea about the terrain at all. Need to do a bit of research to get my head around how to manage it. Otherwise, I'll just turn up and run it based on heart-rate see what's around each corner!

You will have 4 beach crossings - portstewart, whiterocks then Whitepark bay twice. Some road sections then a lot of gravel trails and grassy trails. A few rocky sections to cross as well. On the causeway cliff path there is a lot of steps the main set from the causeway then I think 3 or 4 other sets. It is a very good route though you will love it.

Thank you. Sounds good and varied anyway, which the legs always appreciate - a change often is as good as a rest in ultra-running  :)

Grand after a couple of days just.  Think its the running and biking to work every day has helped keep them right.  When I was younger took me weeks to recover from a marathon.
