Pasta sounds great SS,

Every marathon I've done so far has been nice weather. Be nice to continue the theme.

Last long run done. Couple easy 4s this week and I'm ready to race.

hoping for tea in Y Pantri on Friday. Do you have to book ?

Ah...looking on their Facebook page, they're a coffee shop. Any recommendations for places to eat in Llanberis ?

Having ran London twice, Berlin and Chester marathons am intrigued to see how Snod compares. Obviously going to be a completely different race but have been doing a lot of trail and fell running this year so really can't wait.

Thing I'm most concerned about is the weather . I always run in shorts, whatever the weather , with a concession, at the worst, to long sleeve top and gloves. I'd imagine if it's peeing down you'll need a running jacket ( thinking my parkrun 100 jacket.)

Hoping for a clear day, as I warm up quickly. Getting excited now.

Another note, do you have to book for Y Pantri ?

Probably be wearing Stockport Harriers vest , Welsh flag sown on it with shorts.

Last long run done. 17 (20 including morning's parkrun. 332m climb in 2.36. Felt good, great to have a good run on your last long 'un.

Brit Nick, I'll send you my mobile to see if you want to car share.

Is anyone  staying near Llanberis, can you recommend somewhere to eat night before ?

4.10 would be dream land for something like Snod. Bought my gels today. Countdown begins. One last long run

Morning Roger, welcome to the mad house. My best half is also Conwy, big hill but an awesome down hill section .

My best for a marathon is 3.47 at Chester. It's my 1st Snod so I'm not bothered about the time but I reckon maybe 4.30 ? I'm just going to enjoy it and not be bothered about the splits
