/ Anyone doing the Big Black Mountain Challenge this weekend?
Just wondered if they provide water at any of the checkpoints, no indication on the website.
Looks like its going to be a muddy one. Not looking forward to Pen y Gadair Fawr or Waun Fach to be honest.
Fingers crossed the rain stays away as forecast.
Have a good time.
Looks good and is in the diary for next year.
Yeah, its been goin for a while. Its a charity fundraiser for Longtown MRT so well worth the attempt. Circa 1000 people at this years so should be fun.
Do people run it or is that not in the spirit?
Yeah. I'm running it, hence the fluid question. Its not a race though, i don't think there's prizes anyway. There's 3 dif course lengths. Start times are relaxed, mines between 7.30 and 8.00 am but its a big family outing too. Parents taking kids etc.
I'm looking at it as a great run in a great location and not as a race, just want to enjoy it so i'm pretty relaxed about it atm.
I've done 2 events in the last 6 months and stressed myself out worrying about them. Not this.
Sounds like a good day out. Hope the weather holds for you.
