Result for the Snowdonia half-marathon, 22-May-2016
Wayne has provided the following report:
That was a absolute monster of a half , having climbed over a mile right at the very start it continued to with constant changes in elevation all the way to 11 mile when the race organizers put in a pretty big sting in the tale, a mile climb over 1in 7 gradient, i managed too run about half way up before having to walk , hands on knees just trying to get some oxygen into me lungs, so no extra medal for me this time !!!! before a very steep and slippery descent back into the finish. Good luck to everyone who is running the Snowdoina full in October.( start doing hill reps and lots of them )
thrown into the mix was that famous north wales summer day ( it chucked it down and into a head wind all the way round ). even though it was the hardest half marathon i have run it was also one of the most scenic , going through forest, passed lakes and mountains in the backdrop.
my time was 1hr 55.37 and 21st in me age cat and 111th
