LOL spen! Llanferres car park...assuming you come through Mold and Gwernymynydd on the A494 follow the signs for Moel Famau after going past Loggerheads Country Park. (think it's first right)

Yes, turn right after the 'we three loggerheads' pub, its signposted moel famau country park, follow this for about a mile until you reach the first car park in the forest area.....thats the start. 

Good luck everyone, i'll be there supporting my other half who's hoping to run under 5 hours.  We often train on the Offa's Dyke, its a fabulous training ground for anyone doing an ultra............do not underestimate the hills of the Clwydian Range.....they are knackering!

Hi all,
Boot is loaded and I'm just about to start my first navigational challenge getting from Bournemouth to Mold. Been great chatting to you all here and hopefully see some of you tomorrow

Good luck to everyone running tomorrow, I'll be there about 8.40 to register as only travelling 8 miles or so. Hoping for around 5 hours if my knee holds up! Weather looking good as a lot cooler than of late but still mainly dry. I hope to see some of you and will be enjoying some Real Ale sampling after the event at Weatherspoons Real Ale festival in Mold  which is on until Sunday if anyone is interested. At £2.05 per pint it cannot be missed!!!...

Well that was interesting. There were a lot more people there than I was expecting, which really added to the occasion as I'd been a bit concerned about running along on my own.

If I could have managed my taper a bit better I think I could have gone a little quicker but I really enjoyed it overall and finished with a first -time marathon result of 5-14.

The only thing that played on my mind as I went round was that they moved the checkpoints around a bit and I was conscious that I'd given people route descriptions.

 I hope everyone else got around OK and you are happy with your results.

This was an amazing event Panad and i did it in 5:30. It would of been perfect if some scum bag hadn't of broke into my car stealing my bag which i had stupidly left my ballot in with my wedding rings in. I am devasted.
31/03/2012 at 17:20
So sorry to hear that I hope they rot in hell
31/03/2012 at 17:24
Oh no! Bad luck TR40. Where were you parked.
31/03/2012 at 17:41

On the road.

NG my sentiments exactly.

31/03/2012 at 17:59
disgraceful,i bet thieves were targeting runners cars.
31/03/2012 at 18:06
Taking running kit is one thing but to take your wallet with your rings in it is despicable what sort of world are we living in they must have known what they were so the least they can do is take them to a police station and hand them in or something mind you you still might never find out. I am so sad for you TR39.
31/03/2012 at 19:31
Thanks NG its the rings that is smashing my head they become such a big part of who you are as a couple my wife is devasted as you can imagine.
31/03/2012 at 20:12
Clwydian - Read through your route description and got around fine so don't worry. TR40 - It dearly hurts me to hear about your rings being taken. I can relate to this as I lost mine last year and know i can be extremely upsetting for both you and your wife. I suppose its a sign of the times and should be a lesson for all of us in the future.
