    I know a lot of people pre-registered, myself included. Who on Mudstacle is considering giving it a go?

    Registration opens tonight at 20:00.

    Oh yes. Lucky I have £250 burning a hole in my pocket!

    I’ve just registered…

    Very excited to be entering this challenge. I don’t think I’ve ever really truly tested myself / my comfort zones in this manner and I’m really looking forward to seeing how far I get

    You’re all heroes. I can’t decide if I should do it or not.

    @peterrees are you doing it Pete?

    I would love 2 do this(doing all the other jd events) but £250 is pushing it think i will try primal its a lot cheaper.

    I was only able to get it past the wife on the basis that I’ll never be dumb enough to do it again. Plus it’s my birthday present. It’s about £100 above the “I need to ask the wife but she’ll probably say yes” level. I do appreciate it’s a lot easier/cost effective to get a 10-15km course and throw a few thousand people through it at 30-50 gbp a head.

    I ran into the guys last night (as you do) and pointed out I don’t mind washing out but they better put me through the wringer for at least 12 hours before cutting me so I feel like I’ve got my money’s worth.

    It’s a bit of a punt but the last thing they put together was pretty awesome (I think Nuts, Judgement Day, Pain & Suffering Triple and January Tough Guy are all on the podium for race of the year currently for different reasons).

    Now, has anyone seen my space hopper?

    I’m in on this one, slightly annoyed that I car-booted my space hopper towards the end of last year, oh well. Hoping they give us a little hint as to where it’s going to be more than 2 weeks before so I can sort accommodation for before and after the race as it’s a bit of a trek from me and I doubt I’ll be in a fit state to drive if I finish.

    So, guys that are doing it, what sort of distance are you going to be training for? Marathon? 30 Miles? 50 Miles? At the moment I think the hardest thing to deal with is the total lack of info!

    Just entered, thinking this might be a really good idea or a really stupid one!

    I pre-registered but £250 is a bit too steep for me for now (on top of kit list + travel that would need to be booked so short in advance) 🙁 Will regrettably have to give this one a miss unless I manage to score a free entry.

    Out of interest, a question for those who are willing to pay the full entry ticket. Have you ever given Primal Events a try? They’re cheaper (even after their recent price hike) and their main event is up to 48 hours, plus they have the experience of having put up such events previously.

    I’m just trying to understand people’s motivations for paying so much. I have no doubt that JD will put on a great event, but people’s seeming ignorance of On Trial ‘Death Race origin’ is difficult to get my head around. If you’ve always wanted to do a Death Race, why not look into domestic options before JD came along?

    @olliemud: I think you’ll be running a lot less than you think, so training for a marathon might be overzealous. Instead you’ll be doing backbreaking labor and carrying heavy stuff around for hours on end.

    @tpalm I’m not sure, I reckon they could have us cover a fair old distance over the 36 hours. I’m doing a few marathons next year anyway so I can just keep up the miles for a few more months.

    @olliemud no doubt there will be massive distances to be covered, but just bear in mind that there’s a difference between hiking/shuffling a (half) marathon over a long stretch of time and actually running it for time as you would normally. I somehow ended up hiking 21km while sightseeing abroad last week but didn’t feel like I’d exhausted myself at all by the end of it – I know I would have been dead on my feet if I had been going faster than a snails pace though! 😉

    If you’re already doing the marathons though, it’s all great training and I def wouldn’t dissuade anyone from coming back down from such lofty distances! 🙂

    For anyone who’s registered, I’ve started a Facebook group to discuss training, things we do / don’t know about the race and anything else related.
