It's in the post!! I've just sent off the application form for the Oggie 8, For those that don't know what the Oggie 8 is, full details can be found on the link above, but in short it is an event run by the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team, the route takes in the 8 3,000ft peaks surrounding the Ogwen valley. The day is not about the quickest time or places although last year it was won in a record time of 5hrs 40mins (we will not be any where near that!!!); it is about having a great time and enjoying the fantastic scenery around the Ogwen Valley.
This years event takes place on Saturday 11th August starting and finishing at the Mountain Rescue base. All money raised goes to the Mountain Rescue Team, a very worthy cause as these guys give up their time for free to keep us safe in the Hills and Mountains.
