A brilliant weekend in picturesque North Wales (about: 2000)|
A Runner from Borders Region, Scotland (1/17/01)
The stunning beauty surrounding Wales' highest mountain, called 'Y Wyddfa' (uh wuth-va) in Welsh makes this a very rewarding run. The start is a gradual climb, before descending through small villages. The people are very friendly and give very enthusiastic support. The mountain looked beautifully snow-capped when I woke on the day of the run. This is a timeless place with an exhilarating marathon. Well worth going over for a holiday and making an experience of it... oh and watch out for the ascent up Waunfawr (wine-vour) - you'll need to be fit for that hill!
