    Just waiting for Nikki to finish work and I'm off to Anglessey to run in the coastal path ultra trail series... 17 miles over some welsh mountain area around the peninsular...

    Got about 4 inches of snow outside, got me snow chains on to get out me drive :Doh:

    Staying at a CL 7 miles from the start and the owner has offered me a lift to the start so I don't have to take the toad.. How nice is that?

    Anyhow, got all my kit together whistle, compass, maps,OMM jacket, Skins, trail running shoes, thermal base layer, flare, but

    Will I need my passport?

    Never been to the isle before and I believe there's some strange folk come from over that way :RollEyes:

    Haggers will be fine as Tara will save him.

    So make sure that barrel is filled up ready, I say. :Eeek:

    Just cos I don't know and wonder about it, if the mountain rescue or whoever said to the organisers don't be stupid, would they cancel it?

    your making a fairly large assumption that you will be allowed in...Mrs H may well have to sign all sorts of things stating you wont interact with the locals (human or sheep), and that you will leave on Sunday or Monday at the latest.

    Have you ever run in snow boots/shoes before:Eeek:...you might well need em by tomorrow

    Dont be expecting a good time though - you havent got your mojo's with you this time:Laughing:

    PS Don't be alarmed at the black clouds and thunder an lightning - Shiftzz is on the island at the mo so its quite normal

    No passport needed, just a shovel.

    Oh and of course lots of money to inject into the local economy.

    Happy Running

    Should be stunning with the snow on the mountains, though you will probabbly need to watch where you are putting your feet, though noticed this morning Shiftz said they had no snow earlier on, so maybe not to bad.

    Safe running and have a brilliant time, but watch out for the dragons they are Red so easy to spot.

    If you want some light training, you could go to the railway station, and run a series of short sprints, touching either end of the platform sign ...
