24h Snowdon marathon
« on: October 31, 2011, 04:20:07 pm »
Anyone know anything about this?

I think this ran in early October - about a week before I found out about it.
I'm sort-of kind-of weighing it up as a Silly Thing To Do in 2012. The format is  a bit like the 24H cycle TT, and one I approve of - but the route is a little different!

I've walked up Snowdon by the harder routes several times, so the big unknown is being up a mountain in the pitch black. Apart from a couple of JustGiving pages I can't find any discussion on the web.

Here's the route:

There is also an official event page, with bugger-all extra info  :-\
