Jurassic Coast Challenge - 2018

I've entered the Jurassic Coast Challenge in March 2018. Its 3 coastal marathons over 3 days. This will be my first attempt at a multi-day event.

I'm a little apprehensive, but feel with the right training I will be fine.

Has anyone every done this before?

Also after a little advice. I am hoping to steadily increase my mileage to where i am doing back to back long runs on a weekend (Sat and Sun), then towards the end add an additional run on a Friday to mimic the three runs over 3 days. My last week of serious mileage before taper is 15, 20 and 22 miles respectively.

Is this too much? too little?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Gareth,

This sounds a great race - hope you enjoy the training. You might find these tips on multistage racing from Ian Corless useful: https://iancorless.org/2016/10/05/10-top-tips-for-multistage-and-multi-day-racing/

Your training ideas sound sensible to me but I will also put a tweet out to see if any of our members have completed this race and have any tips.

Good luck!
