Just a quick note about route finding.

On my last two training runs I've managed to miss the path junction for the summit of Moel Arthur: despite having found it with map in hand and making a mental note that it was tricky.

This time I retraced my steps to work out how to avoid doing it again.

The junction comes just after the a stile at the top of the grassy climb up Moel Arthur. The path on the other side rapidly becomes singletrack. Make sure you take the right fork in the track straight away. I think I keep missing it because the gorse has been cut back in that area and the path is right on the edge of the cut section.

I might be a doubt for this now.   Depends on how my tenditis reacts to treatment.

Hey all Just realised how close this is to home & looks lovely, so would be silly not to enter!

 @Spen71, I really liked the Northants Shires & Spires Ultra the yr I did it

2 weeks to go

 was getting a bit worried last week as my fitness seemed to evaporate, but think I was just fighting off some germs (more than likely picked up at school) as I went out for another 20miler on thursday and felt really strong throughout

just entered snowdon race as my next focus after this, to keep me going until what'll be my 4th snowdonia marathon in the autumn...
