Everyone is different, so we’ve put together a few different checklist options for people. If you are doing your first 100-miler, a signposted flat or flat-ish course with lots of aid stations and support such as the Robin Hood 100 is ideal for beginners.
If you are tackling a mountainous or technical 100-miler, we would recommend having run at least a 50-mile mountain or 100-mile flat course before. Please also check the entrance requirements of your specific race.
