Guess My Time - Ring o Fire

My next ultra will be new to me in that it will be first time I have done a staged race. This one is called the Ring o Fire and covers the coastal path around Anglesea in North Wales.

To take part and have a chance to win these prizes all you have to do is send me your guess in hours, minutes and seconds of how long you think it will take me to complete the 135 miles over 3 days.

As before there is only one guess per time so if your time is taken I’ll ask you to guess again.

To give you an idea of here is my plan for the 3 days ..

  • Day 1: 35.70 miles - 7hrs 30mins
  • Day 2: 65.58 miles - 16hrs 30mins
  • Day 3: 33.09 miles - 8hrs

If I achieved that my total time would be 32hrs 00mins 00secs.

If you want to take part please send your guess by 5pm on Thursday 30th August 2018 by:-

    Hi John
    There’s no substitute for having a little bit of speed work behind you, IMHO. Even in a 135 mile race!
    Good luck
