    2nd year for me. 1:43 last year with a 1:07 summit time, hoping to beat both of those little milestones.

    I wore X-Talons and they were spot on, I did use Vaseline on both feet. No sores or blisters = winner

    Mounsey lost the thick skin on both balls of his feet the year he finished 3rd.

    Photos taken at Snowdon. MrRTS race 22 of 50@50 with 50'000 meters total ascent. No blisters, no injuries, no problems. All going well and raising money for the Thomas Theyer Foundation. If you would like to donate to the foundation that enables kids in difficult life circumstances access the outdoors as we do then please follow this link. It is so very much appreciated. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nigel-jeff

    If you would like the original with none of the information on the photo then just shout up and we will e-mail it to you.

    Out of interest, is that the record for M50 ?
    Best I'd seen before was 1:13 by Don Williams .

    'Standard' entries open midnight tonight.

    Hoping to get in, and an initial vague target of 1hr30, which means i'd certainly have to reach to top in no more than 58 minutes. Seems quite a big ask for me.

    I've got a place this year. My initial vague target is "don't make a fool of self". Easier said than done!

    I got in as well. Noticed several forumites on the start list. I've been fairly proactive and got accommodation booked just round the corner from the start as well, for the fri & sat nights.

    Just hope I recover from an absolutely brutal May & June in time to do myself justice on this race.
