Entries opened yesterday on the website and there's 148 on the entry list already, including Colette and loads of Croups!

If you're a marathon runner, it's one of those 'must do' races - plus it makes a good weekend away and can be done quite cheaply if you book ahead. I'm probably going to do Beachy Head instead so won't be doing it this year.

Really enjoyed this last year, and just signed up again for this year.
Places appear to be filling up fast this year as it's the 30th anniversary.

Hopefully weather will will not be quite so atrocious this time, and I'll be able to see at least some of the supposedly fabulous views from the top of Pen y Pass!

When I did this in 2009, I stayed in the Travelodge in Caernarfon. It's pretty new and was decent value if you've got a car to drive to the race, its only about 10mins down the road to Llanberis.
The coaster is amazing - definitely the best ever memento from a race I've done. Hoping to get the set of four by the time I own my own house (in like ten years)!

Gareth and I stayed here

It's hostel-type accomodation but they won't put strangers together in the same room, we had a 4-bed room to the 2 of us. There were a few marathoners staying there, so plenty of people to chat to at breakfast!

It's a 10-minute walk from race registration, the finish line and Llanberis highstreet, (pubs, food, karaoke). I think we paid a grand total of £18 / night each which included continental breakfast.

I'd stay there again without hesitation :)

Opportunity! I have a place available for this race for transfer for anyone who is interested and currently at a level of training such that they could participate in this race. I have not been able to fully commit to training over the last month or so, so am not intending to do this, even to "get around"!

If you are interested, please let me know. The organisers have stated that this must be done by 30th September but if I don't hear from anyone from the club, then I will offer it back to the organisers by 23rd September.
