2012 was our first full season of events, with the Thames Path 100, South Downs Way 100, North Downs Way 50 and 100, Winter 100, and the Piece of String Fun Run. In this retrospective analysis, we look at various aspects of the four 100 mile events, aiming to identify trends in the pacing strategies of runners and looking at points across the four courses where runners dropped from each race. These data have highlighted some interesting insights, including identification of some of the more difficult sections of the races, the effects of race conditions and the race terrain on running speeds and pacing strategies favoured by race winners.
As ever if you have any comments or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
