- then you would have covered the nominal Ultralong distance! I think you ought to run that with the big boys in April :) But it might mean entering elites at Easter as part of your training schedule...?

Uh oh, 28km huh? I should probably train or something.

Ricky, it wouldn't surprise me if you ended up running about 28km in last year's Ultralong, with all of the wide track route choices that were on Nerrina. I certainly ran over 18 and that is the length which the W21E course will be this year - but in the Flinders you can run far more directly (if not getting lost. Which brings me to the thought that there could be some fantastic GPS tracks - but technically GPS isn't allowed in a WRE. I think it'll be all right if we enforce covering the display, though).

Is the ultra-long a WRE this year?

Yup :)

Blair can you please fix your log so that the info is on the right instead of at the bottom? I don't have time for scrolling.

Too busy eating cakes?

Doesn't show like that for me on Firefox but is on IE. Are you seeing other logs doing the same thing?

Nope, only yours.

Same thing happened with Samantha a few weeks back so I've asked her for advice on what (if anything) can be done about it.

maybe tRicky hacked your log?

Yeah I read about it on someone else's log (probably Samantha's) although I don't recall why I happened to look in that log at that particular time as I'd never read it before or since.
