Comments RE: VT 50 for 1st 50 miler? How difficult compared to Pineland farms challenge?<br>
Planning to do road marathon 1 month prior as part of training but will do other longer training runs, on trails as much as possible

After all the good advice, I'm still leaning towards VT. Stonecat is in the next town over from me but later in the season then I want. I have done the 12 mile loop in training.<br>
Pineland was fun last year and despite my lack of planning I still managed just under 5 hrs. I treated it like a slow marathon for the first 25K, hung on at the end and didn't really walk much until my legs made me. And then I walked alot.I liked the course and did not find it difficult.<br>
I guess I picture the VT50 like the Seven Sisters I did 8?years ago but maybe with more flats.<br>
I'll keep training and will see!<br>
Thanks for the stories.
