Great work everyone, I've been away for a bit so not been keeping up until today.
Was racing the boat up at Bala (North wales) but managed to sneak in Bala Parkrun before the start of sailing.
498 miles YTD but got easy run at running club tonight before Saturdays Ultra.
Thanks Donnie, yeah, my wife is a massive fan of my hobbies, she loves nothing more than me disappearing for bank holiday weekends with the boat, followed by a lot of hours away running....August is a particular favourite month historically.
Harmander, guessing you're past the 1000 by now so many congratulations.
Just past 500 for me at running club last night 505 miles YTD
Well done Cal, saw some of it on various other social media stuff, looked great.
My tale of the Preseli UltrabeasT goes like this...
Top tip : DO NOT ENTER THIS RACE UNLESS
YOU'VE TRAINED FOR IT...fair to say I hadn't trained enough.
Race number 32...oh the irony of a race number the same as miles to run.
Loaded up race vest with more kit than needed. Traditional find a new friend Beast hugs at the start
and off we go into the Beasts lair (woods)....the first 11 miles were ok, down through
the Gwaun Valley to Newport (Pembs)...then it's back up Carn Ingli, 18 miles to Foel
Feddau (ouch) could have easily bailed out and headed home on Beast
route (doing only 24 miles)....but thanks to the girl I was running with we pushed on to the Ultra
route...8 miles towards Crymych via Carn Alw and brutal climb up Foel
Drygarn...finally turn for home along the Golden road, stunning views help.
Back at Foel Feddau it's finally time for the last climb up Foel Cymcerwyn and
the return downhill to the Lair and shuffle to the finish line. Some skin has
gone missing from feet but legs actually feel ok today.
7hrs 41mins…32 miles & 6000ft of climbing…3000 calories.
Chatting with the guy that organises it at the finish, he finally admitted that it's "not your average Ultra"...no kidding....marshals included a Storm trouper, 2 lobsters, a Police lady and a Traffic cone...
536 miles YTD...probably not recording too many more this week.
Fantastic running going on.
Well done,Dubai,Cal and MrM2,on your 700.
Andrew,well done on reaching 300.
That's a tough race,Hobie,that's definitely not your average ultra.Well done.
Congrats on reaching the target already,Harmander,I'm sure you'll double it by the end of the year.
Hope your leg sorts itself out,David.
SenidM,great mara result and GFA place.
