    I agree that it is not very clearly worded, but what they are saying is that no event that has a time limit of less than 20 hours for 50 miles can be considered as a qualifier.

    I had a good chat with a guy at the end of the Red Rose 50 and he was saying a difficult one, like the Red Rose 50, is a better indicator to your ability to do the 100, I hate to use the word "easy" for a 50 mile event, but I guess the RRR50 is not difficuly enough, I believe it is has a lot of road and not as much climbing as other 50 mile events.

    My brother managed to get into the North York Moors 100 by accident (the guy could not use SiEnteries properly). With being based in Ireland, John tried to use the 137Km Wicklow Way race as a qualifier, but was not allowed because the cuts offs were much too tight for somebody to walk it, so it would be unfair to walkers.

    If they allowed non-LDWA events then the there would be too many ultra runners qualifying, whereas the LDWA is primaryly a walking organisation.

    John flew over for the weekend in September to do the Red Rose 50 so we are OK for next years hundred.

    Interesting; have never worried about being too fast before. Can’t remember which events Bob and I used but we did do Red Rose 50 and Fellsman
