Keep an eye out for me on the Woldsman then. I should ba able to get round the bugger with no need for a map nowadays.

As for an unsuported 50 in Feb, look out for a post by Annabel Wood i reckon she may post in Peter's thread (he seems to have gazump't us :-)

Very good to hear from you again. Woldsman again next year?
Yes, myself and the lady who started this thread (we finished the CamelTeign 100 together) have decided as part of our prep for The Valleys 100 (if we get in!) we would like to complete a 50 mile walk in Feb. We are still in the process of planning but keep an eye out on this forum for a 'Guerrilla 50'
I must stress tho. This will be AN UNSUPPORTED event as i cannot expect any group to put on an LDWA event of 50 miles in Feb.

Janet

Many thanks for the heads up regarding the Carpet Baggers 50
I havent started transfering the RD (which looks a tad wooly at best) to a map. I wasn't about to start planning untill i spoke to Eric at least. Your warning is greatly recieved.

Once Annabel reads this i can see the Aylesbury one becoming favourable anyroad..

a word of warning about the carpet baggers 50 - the route description is very out of date

Aaron. I have also been looking at long distance path routes for 100 training. Think you have stumbled on a good idea. I have pre-registered (I think) for next year's 100. If you want some company on any of the 50s that you do, please let me know.
PS I think I may have walked with you in this year's Woldsman with Tony (Leeds). Mick

Thanks Peter

Kent is a tad too far for an anytime challenge, I don't mind traveling for an organised 50 (Sussex, Norfolk and Suffolk this year. Not forgetting local East Yorks).

looking at the find a path feature, two have caught my eye for a 'guerrilla 50'....

Aylesbury Outer Ring
Carpet Baggers 50

Some time Feb in prep for Valleys100!

Madeleine try out the find a path feature of this website its brill for reasearch. You have a number of 50's your neck of the woods The Calderdale 50 springs to mind or The Ripon Rowel int far away. That said The Danum Trail is on mi doorstep and The Peatlands Way even closer! !

Oo - I was going to do that - somewhere a bit nearer to home though. I haven't done the research yet.... Any ideas? Anyone else interested in joining me? Could do a cafe- crawl round West Yorks?!

Been thinking a lot about this thread. Am sure Norfolk n Suffolk have a good reason to ditch this years Poppyline. Tiss a shame like, i enjoyed last years event and i too like to get a fifty done in Feb and prob The Woldsman in April ready for 'the hundred' i admire N&SLDWA for putting a 50 on in Feb in the first place.

So i have used the cancelation to better understand this website. The 'long distance paths' tab with the find a path feature is ruddy brilliant.....
Found me a nice 50 round Aylesbury to do in Feb. Aylesbury Ramblers even give a route description n basic map feature on their website. Smashin ar Morris.

Thanks (Simon i think) for a super feature of the LDWA website.

Oh no! I was hoping that they were just late in getting it in the list. What a shame! That's my 100 training plan gone to pot.... (well not totally, but I had hoped to do it).

Thanks, David.
I was hoping there'd be an official 50 in February or March as part of the build up to the Valleys 100 in May. Guess I'll be coming up with my own :o)

As stated on N&S website

http://www.ldwa.org.uk/NorfolkAndSuffolk/W/1409/n-s-events.html

there isn't going to be a Winter Poppyline in 2014. It may reappear in 2015.

50ml+ events in 2014 so far notified to me as Challenge Events sec and therefore listed under Events are:-

Wellington Boot & Woldsman both w/e 12/13 April
3 Rings of Shap 14/15 June
Wenlock Olympian Walk 19/20 July

I believe that Kent group are putting on Wealden Waters 100K 26/27July

If anyone knows of any others I'd be pleased to hear about it.

Does anyone know if the Winter Poppyline is going ahead this coming February?

If not are there any other 50mile challenge events planned for early 2014?

Many thanks
