How do you train for a 100km event? In most cases, people will have completed one or more marathons and probably a shorter ultramarathon or two.
In previous years we did some long run training sessions which covered the entire course in approximately 25km sections (also similar to the 4 x 25km relay sections). We might do a few selective runs in September and early October this year too. If we do, then we will ensure that the sessions cater for all abilities from about 4:40pace to 7:30pace.
If we do provide some training runs, they’ll be shown in the table below and we’ll let people know via Facebook and the monthly WFFA newsletter.

For event more guidance on training for a 100km event, consider reading the attached article by Don Wallace. Don ran 100km in 6:39 in New Zealand in 1992 so knows a thing or two about the distance. This article was picked up on the web and unfortunately we can’t cite an accurate reference.
