What specialty plan are you doing for Dirty Kanza?

I am coming up to the start of my specialty training for Dk200 and looking to geek out a bit more on plan choices. I know the TR guys recommend the century plan which makes sense but I also keep thinking about the marathon xc plan.

I have never raced DK but the rumour is it is a lot of rolling hills which makes me think the punchy efforts in the xc marathon plan may more closely mimic the race conditions. This thinking could just be a self-confidence thing - I feel good about long steady efforts but not so much when I comes to short efforts.

Essentially, love to hear others thoughts on why not go with the xc marathon? Keep in mind I have never raced DK and I am new to TR so haven’t tested out either plan in the past.
