Travelled to a very beautiful Carding Mill Valley in shropshire this weekend for an offorad half (they do a 2 lap full marathon distance too).
800+ m ascent and two steep quad loading downhills.
Very enjoyable day in the sun. Managed to tun away with the win in 1h 38. A good preparation run for Snowdonia Trail Marathon in July ...which I am as nervous as hell about!
I know it well Jim - absolutely beautiful place. Didn't know about the race though - sounds good. I have walked to the Stiperstones - amazing views.
Hey, Jim. Are you sorted for somewhere to stay for the Snowdonia event? Andy and I are running and you are more than welcome to crash at our cottage if you want.
Fantastic - well done Jim - sounds like a good one. Think I did spot the full distance but it's a bit of a long drive... Good time for something that wasn't exactly flat!
