If so what training are you doing? I'm doing on in 12 weeks and I'm really starting to panic I'm not fit enough.

currently I do one long walk (6 hours) a week, an exercise class and 1 or 2 short runs. its not enough is it shock

Thanks for the replies, the walk is in one go, I believe we have up to 33 hours to complete it.

After I posted this thread yesterday we had a training programme from the organisers so I feel a bit better about what I need to be doing now.

This is the training programme they have sent @lljk. Not sure I'll fit it all in though!

100k is 62 miles but you'll only get up to doing 40 miles, & over 3 days, the wk before. Yet Lots of ppl describe prep regimes like that so it will probably work for most folk. Let us know how you get on?

I walked 22 miles over 3 days recently & have some niggles to manage. Could not get off couch last night.
