Meirionnydd Round - postponed - now 11/18 July

I've been struggling with a couple of injuries so have had to postpone my attempt. If you can make either of the above dates, let me know - a bit more Mercia support would be brilliant.

Exe to Axe - is it a fell race?

I happened to be in Devon the weekend of the Exe to Axe race, so why not do it? Its advertised as 20 miles with 4,000 feet of ascent. How hard can a race in Devon be?

South Wales Traverse 28 March

Yiannis Tridimas and I completed this at the weekend, in 22:07 and 20:45 respectively. Wayne Percival did a great job on roadside support - low key but efficient. I've been looking at it on and off over the years: a bit of reccying with Chris Taylor; also ran most of it over 2 days a couple of years ago with David Waide who knows the route intimately. I've regarded it as the easiest of the classic 24h challenges, which I guess it is, but I found it pretty hard, due to the distance and the amount of levelish running.

Llangynhafal Loop

There are some pictures of this year's race now up on my site:-

 They were taken just off the summit of Moel Famau, a very cold summit......

London Marathon 2009 - support the Dementia Relief Trust

Myth has it that whatever time you do on the Stretton Skyline race can be repeated in a marathon. Well, I decided to test this myth and entered the ballot for the London Marathon. I got in! I'm runner number 10044. My target time is 3h 24m (that's 8min/mile, which for an old fart like me is going to be tough).

Ras yr Aran

There are some pictures of this race up on my site:-

I was just below the summit of Aran Fawddwy, having struggled to the summit itself (one is a little unfit to put it politely) I moved off to position myself just below the start of the rocks/scree up to the summit.

Meiri Round pics and a bit more reccying

Spent a bit of time with the camera at the weekend; accordingly the cloud was low !http://www.flickr.com/photos/8589216...7614316201747/ Sat a.m. met Alan and Lawrie at Pont Fronwydd; sunny drive up to Bala but that was the end of the sunshine for the day. <break>
