Sure it's something f you've asked them, but if they dumped the repeat at 7, couldn't they get the 2nd hour there ?

Snowdon doesn't just tick all the boxes, it gets out
its crayons and book, draws a load of new boxes and ticks those too. Everything
from the faultless registration, to the freebie t-shirt and wonderful slate
finisher's coaster to the lovely hoody I bought helped to make this race so
special, and that's before I get onto the run itself. The humour and camaraderie
between the runners, knowing that you are setting off on reportedly the UK's
toughest marathon sets the scene for the most beautiful sights I've ever run
through. However, when they say its tough, good grief, they are not lying, it
was ball boucingly hard. The gain from mile 22-25 255 metres (that's not
including the other two monsters during the race). Even though it my slowest
time by far, this is by some distance, the best marathon I've ever done. It is
no wonder its been twice voted the UK's best marathon.

To top it all, met a lot of people from the forum last night and am pleased to say what a nice bunch !  Considering the talent from all assemble at Y Pantri, I felt (unintentionally) very inadequate.

See you this evening for proper food.  No dirty beer sadly as I'm driving
