Who wants to do Bala Middle distance next year?
it's a great race for practicing your nutrition and race day strategy as well as a great race. it's well organised and a fantastic course. To top it all they ensure the weather by sacrificing the local virgin to the weather god. Regardless of what the weather has been like elsewhere or the days preceding the race I have never had bad weather there (OK the sacrificing a virgin bit is an assumption and may not be true).
There is a great campsite up the road with good facilities or if you fancy slumming it the local hotels in Bala will accommodate you. Overall a great friendly little race with a good deal of pirate history, I'd even go as far as saying the locals enjoy hosting the race.
