I thought it would add to the fun (well for me anyway!) to have my traditional Guess My Time competition for the #VirtualWHrace which starts on Friday 12th June and finishes on Sunday 21st June.
The idea is to run the 95 miles from home over 9.5 days. I’m fortunate in that I’ll be able to run the majority of it on the Gleniffer Braes which is like a mini West Highland Way and an area I’ve used in training for all my ultra races over the past 13 years.
Here is my plan
There will be a spot prize and a limited edition key ring for the closest guess.
To enter all you need to do is guess how long it will take me to run the 95 miles over the 9.5 days.
To give you an idea of a rough guess at the moment when I do a 15 mile loop on the Braes it takes me around 3hrs which is 5mph or 12 min miles. If I average 12min mile for the whole 95 miles then it would take me 19hrs 00mins 00secs but some of the runs will be shorter and potentially faster.
I’m setting myself …
- Bronze – sub 19:51:59 – my West Highland Way personal best!
- Silver – sub 19hrs
- Gold – sub 18hrs
To take part please send me your guess in hours, minutes and seconds by 5pm Thursday 11th June by ..
