Instead of a back to back marathon on the course Why not run the race in the opposite direction.
That climb up to Bwlch y Groes instead of coming down it would be a nice interesting start and climbing up Bryn Gwynant instead of coming down it would be a very tough 3.2 mile tester with a leg crippling 4 mile run to the finish.
The problem with a double Snowdon marathon is that the entry list would look very small.
If the reverse Snowdon could be made into a charity event whereby runners would have to pay a small entry fee (say ??10) then the proceeds could be given to a worthy charity.
The novelty factor may ensure quite a few runners turn up to have a go, and if it could be run in early September it could be considered a very long training run for the official race in October.
Whether Jayne Lloyd could officially sanction the run, accept our tenner on the day and donate the proceeds to a worthy cause is another matter, but if it can be organised properly count me as I've always wanted to run a backward Snowdon marathon.
I might be on telly once again.
The camera quad bike was filming Alun Vaughn and solitary running opponent at 4.1 miles except i had decided to go off full of confidence and was race leader for over half an hour.
It's probably the first time and last time i will have led Europe's toughest marathon.
I reached Pen Y Pass in just over 33 min , shame i could not have continued that pace to the finish.
Never mind, at least i collected coaster number 19 and completed race number 20.
Cannot wait till 2015, its got a magnetism that is addictive.
Forget about the shattered abused body struggling to walk in a straight line the day after the race.
Was that you i spoke to a 7.8miles in the lane.
I found the weather quite strange this year, a bit too warm going up the Pass and just right coming into Beddgelert.
Just a shame the dousing in Beddgelert didn't continue for the rest of the race, it kept me cool and i was fully prepared for it unlike most other runners who had unwisely watched the weather forecast thinking it was going to remain dry.
This is Snowdonia in late Autumn Anything can happen and usually does.
Without doubt the best organised Snowdon ive taken part in since starting in 1995.
Water stations, pieces of orange at 11m, over zealous Police riders ensuring our safety when coaches and local buses were travelling deliberately close to some of us in Bettws Garmon.
Considering my training or lack of it, one 15mile long run for the race, i am really pleased with my 5-21, and for the first time in a marathon my legs are totally shot the day after.
One chap i spoke to at Rhydd Ddu was doing another marathon today and sailing to Dublin for Mondays race.
He was feeling tired after a hard 16m in Eryri but was still thinking of running or competing in two back to back marathons. Total Lunacy!!! Think about your body mate, rest for a week or two then think of competing in another race.
Cannot wait until New Years Eve to get my entry in for 2015, and like this years race that will be with us far quicker than is healthy.
