According to the posters at the start of the Herts Stroller, the next SP will be in July next year - I'll probably go in for that anyway, although I've already blown my chances of the triple by getting timed out of the Stroller.

Deirdre, thanks for the invitation - I'd seen the Dorset Giant as a possible one, but after the Stroller I'm wondering whether 26 hours would be enough for me to finish 100k! Although I was still feeling fine, 17:00 was the cut-off time for 43 miles and I was half an hour later than that. I've finished two 50s this year (Winter Poppyline and Woldsman) in under 20 hours, so I'm apparently getting slower for some reason. I'm already signed up for the White Cliffs which is 52 in 22, I'll have to see how that goes and if I get timed out again, try to work out what I'm doing wrong!

Michael, The last one was September 2011. Not sure if it will be in 2013, as I thought it was a three year cycle. This is a brilliant event, full of interesting and unexpected things, with watery views round every corner. It is also FLAT- what a relief, for a change.

If you are in for triple challenges, and can get to the South West, have a look at our Dorset site for next year's Giant in April-100k-the others being Wellington Boot (Cornwall and Devon) and Wye Forest (Bristol and West)

Every third year, I think

Does anyone know when the next edition of this is going to be, please? I've seen the Eastern Triple Challenge advertised as SP + Winter Poppyline + Herts Stroller - I did the Poppyline this year and am intending to enter the Stroller in August, but I wasn't a LDWA member at the time of last year's SP and it's not mentioned on the events list for this year, so I was just wondering when I'd get a chance to complete the triple. Is it only held every 2/3 years?
