**Snowdonia Marathon Eryri Ballot News
Remember all you successful applicants to the 2020 race have been sent an email with a link that you can use to enter and pay. This link is valid for two weeks from 1st of January, so you have until midnight Weds 15th of January to claim your place. Failure to enter in this 2-week period will mean a loss of the place. So, if you got that email get online ASAP and claim your spot in the 2020 race!
Places that have not been claimed by the deadline will be put back for a second ballot draw which will take place on January 31st 2020 and those not successful on the first draw will then have a second chance to gain a place.**
...I'd hate to think that after the relief of making it through the ballot anyone loses their place by forgetting to complete their entry!
Quiet here. Guess everyone is out training.
I hope I am not over stepping the mark here but I know she is far to modest to mention it herself but the updated World Megamarathon Rankings have just come out with our forum's very own Brer Rabbit currently ranked at joint 704th in the WORLD!!!
For those of you don't know the rankings list the runners with the most number of marathons run and you need at least 300 under your belt before you can get on it. Well done Brer - amazing stuff.
Here is a link in case you want to check it out (some seriously incredible totals need to break into the top 10)

About Courtney Dauwalter
Currently one of the top ultra runners in the world, Courtney Dauwalter will talk to WHH about her running, races, training and life and lots of stories on the way.
This is a massive deal! Courtney is the equivalent to Mo on the track in the world of ultra running. Overall winner of the Moab 240 (yes 240 miles) in 2017, female winner of the Western states in 2018 with the second fastest time ever and competitor and winner of numerous other races Courtney is witty, humble and a lovely human. There will be plenty of chance for questions.
Check out podcast interviews with Courtney on 'Joe Rogan' and 'Bad Boy Running' - note these podcasts do contain bad language.

Strange times indeed TR. I am still hoping that the SNOD Trail goes ahead - it could be quite a day out at that time of year! In fact I had no interest in doing it again until I heard they had moved the date. As you can't cancel your accommodation are you planning an unofficial SNOD?
As 2021 SNOD is effectively a week later I am not sure it will fit with my other races next year. If I do decide to skip it I will give you first option on my place but probably won't make a final decision till next spring.
