Anglesey Trail Run

Friday and the snow is coming down, there is a red snow warning for Anglesey and we're meant to be running a half-marathon (actually 15.5miles) there on the Saturday. We decided to head down and see how we got on as they had confirmed the race would be running. Conditions on the A55 were difficult but driveable. We got within half a mile of the B&B but the last hill defeated Mel so we parked in a layby and walked up. We knew that it was going to be a snowy run on the Saturday.

Just before dinner we recieved an email, the race was now cancelled but they would have the 10k course marked out and we were welcome to run it in pairs/groups. So on Saturday morning Richard who runs the B&B gave us a lift over and we met up with Pauline, Greg, Tom and Jenn. It was a lovely winter wonderland and probably the slowest 10k I'll ever run. Lots of fun and lots of smiles up on the mountain.

  1. That snow looks wonderfully deep.

    Glad a good time was still had by all.
