Well done to all who raced this. It's one I fancy one day... maybe!
Well done Seren and everyone else who did this.
We popped along between 5-6pm and cheered at a few people while walking the dog along the canal.
Seren sorry we missed you finish but we had to be back home by a certain time for other stuff but it's the thought that counts. x
Thank you so much for the very kind comments. Sue and I have been away for the last week in sunny Iceland (actually it was flippin freezing and snowed every day), so its only now I am catching up with this thread.It is genuinely a great privielige for us to organise the event and knowing everyone had a great time is a massive cherry on the cake.It goes without saying that we couldnt hope to do this event without the help of an amazing crew, with hero's like FB and Pgiving up their time over a weekend to support all the runners. The comments on here, on other forums and on the Likeys Facebook page time and time again refer to these selfless, passionate people who go a long way to making Sue and my job an utmost pleasure.
As for other races.... We do of course organise a little 120 or 350 mile wobble in the Canadian Arctic (not for profit just for passion) although we are having a year off in 2012, but we already have enough entry deposits for 2013 to say with little doubt that this will be the next edition.
We also have another foreign race in the making for the end of August 2012, website and details should be forthcoming very shortly. What I can say is that it will be a 7 day stage race over approx 150 miles in what I think (I am biased) is an amazing out of this world environment that has variety and surprises every day....
As for further UK races...... Likeys isn't mean't to be primarily race organisers, we organise the few little wobbles we do for the fun of it. However, if there was demand for us to do another little jaunt (say in the Summer) it wouldn't take much to persuade us....... Just let us come down to earth after last weekend and our week away and we will canvass some further thoughts. However, there does seem to be a lot of new races popping up every week.....
Anyway, I digress. When I started this response, all I really wanted to say was THANK YOU....
Would also like to say a huge thanks to Martin and sue for organising a truly superb ultra, this was my first ultra and the support from the marshals and fellow runners was outstanding, will definately be back for next years race , im hooked!! but Tor y foel the second time around was not funny!!! Hahahaha!!!!!!!
Diolch yn fawr,
A long shot I know but.....I'm looking for an entry spot for this event (2012) if anyone knows of someone who can no longer attend I would appreciate the place.
I've a place as well if any one wants it.
emailed you Paul
anyone racing who's not in a team, but happy to join an elagen team? We may be 1-2 runners short from dropouts.
running up there today and parts of the tracks are closed opff for forestry work,,with diversions........wonder if the route will be chamged or just run through it as it will be weekend
Might be worth mentioning to Martiin and Sue. Although I'm sure they'll be doing a check of the course at some point.
I'm looking forward to this. Met office currently say light rain followed by sleet and snow for Pen y Fan...
... now saying sleet in the morning and sunny intervals later...
