Good work on keeping your temper with that marshal Chimney. That is pretty inconsiderate organisation and gives races a bad name with non runners.
That section at 15-18 was probably the hardest bit perhaps because it was so unexpected. Really hard going and was just pleased that none of my slips ended with more than a stubbed toe - although the nail has gone a terminal black colour now. Fair play for the marshals at top of the Snowdon and drink station on the way down they were getting a real battering from the elements.
They have had 2 wet years so next year MUST be sunny - you tempted for another go TR??
Well TR what did you make of that then?? Typical Snowdonia weather eh?! Would have broken the 6hr if it wasn't for the extra 1.5 mlies stuck on the end presumably to keep the half at the correct distance but a pain for the rest of us. 6.02 and a new PW but it wasn't as bad as I feared. The clothing choice of a fair amount of the hikers that we shared the montain lacked a fair bit of common sense. Did you see the guy with pyjama bottoms?
Cheers Chimney. It definitely seemed like a good idea last November when I entered but less so now! Glad I caught FOOW's excellent Snowdon Race coverage. I had stupidly thought that the run down the Llanberis path would be the easy bit. I will just be thankful to stay upright.
TR, I keep a look out for you and hope to see you at some point during the day
