Everything is in place with my team, all members are booked in. logistics are all sorted. Now it is just a case of heading up Friday afternoon / evening and going for it on Saturday at 7:00am. I’m expecting the Carneddau section will be chalked off fairly comfortably but then I’m also expecting the Glyder section to be a long slow energy sapping slog with burning legs. Especially the descent up Y Garn and then up on Glyder Fawr from Llyn y cwn and if we get this far the final ascent onto Tryfan from Bwlch Tryfan. Hence the “it will hurt there, there and there”.
There is a mass start time at 7:00am from the Ogwen valley mountain rescue hut, with a few cut off points along the route. 13:00 at Ogwen cottage. 15:00 at Llyn y Cwn. I also believe there is cut off point at Bwlch Tryfan but this has not been confirmed as yet. We certainly will not be setting any record times and the only target we are aiming for is to get round and complete it.
One thing is for sure I’m really looking forward to the beers afterwards; they hopefully will be well earned.
I will be posting photos and report early next week after the event. Lastly if anyone reading this is actually doing the event this Saturday. All the best and see you there.
