Ladies need encouragement to commit to Ultra?
I've got two lady run buddies who say they want to do the Imber Ultra that I've started training for. I've extended the 16 week Competitor plan to 24, made a FB group for it, joined them, made a simple fuelling plan knowing the checkpoints are max. 7.4mls. apart. Sign up is Oct. but they haven't said any more about it on the couple of runs we've been on since. Is there anything more I can do to encourage them?

RE:Ladies need encouragement to commit to Ultra?
It definitely sounds like you've done your bit. It's important that they make their own decision - an ultra is a big time commitment and a huge challenge. It might be helpful to ask them up front whether they are keen - if there are particular things getting in the way, then you may be able to work together to overcome them - we have lots of helpful articles for new ultra runners if you browse our Articles section. If they are reluctant, then it may be time to focus on your own training. Do let us know if you identify particular barriers for them that we may be able to offer suggestions for overcoming.
