South Downs Way 100 Mile Race Report – June 2013 – Centurion Running – Finisher!

Centurion Running Petzl South Downs Way 100 Mile Run Race – June 2013 – IsraelTheRunner Finishes

Here is my experience finishing my first 100 mile run & what it looks like from the back of the pack. You can see exactly my mental state, how it changes, but always remaining positive and believing I would finish in 30 hours. This is raw, mostly uncut footage of the South Downs Way 100.

I finished in a time of 29 hours, 37 minutes, 10 seconds in 139 place out of 142 finishers and 190 who started the race. My goal was only to finish this 100 mile race under the 30 hour cut off, not run for a fast time. I achieved this goal. For my next 100, I will run for a sub-24 hour time.

I give so much credit to the volunteers who stocked the aid stations full of food! Without this food for fuel, I wouldn't have been in such good spirits.

And Thanks to Centurion Running for putting on such a an amazing event and flawless organization and logistics. Couldn't have been more perfect.
