I will make my second attempt at the Spartathlon on Friday September 28th. I’m going to try and break my own Scottish record of 33hrs 14mins achieved in 2005. Training has gone well and I’m fit and ready to go. I’ve heat acclimatised and done the training camp in August to assist me with the off-road element. I accept that there is an advantage to runners who have done it often, as course knowledge is useful.
They have a record entry this year of 386 runners.
