    Iain has turned into a monster this year. He won the Carneddau race last week and came home third today, beaten only by the excellent Tim Davies and the legend that is Colin Donnelly.

    Iain what are you on and where can I get some of it? Well done.

    Cheers, Been fending of such allegations all night from club mates...:-)

    Knocked off 30 minutes from last year so happy with that.

    Very hard race, made especially so as it was a competitive run throughout, always people to chase down or keep ahead of, good conditions for running after we got through the clag of the Carneddau.

    CD's awesome, 10 wins in the 1000m peaks race now. Superb.

    Re: Welsh 1000mtrs

    Yes well done, Colin, Iain and everybody else who made it to the finish. I stuggled badly, being pants at climbing I found the initial climb particularly hard although I was pretty happy with my line as far as FG at which point I went around to the left but strayed a bit wide in the cloud and wasted a bit of time getting back on the main path to CL, although it is was nice to get a bit of flattish ground to run on. CL to CD was fine although at this point my feet were really starting to hurt, they had a soaking early on and the rough ground felt like they had blistered badly, and I was feeling every stone though the soles of my Mudclaws. Having spotted the "wall" on the way to CD I was confident on locating it on the way back down but left the path too early and ended up having to some serious down scrambling over the end of Creigiau Malwod, at which point I decided to just hit the bottom wall and follow it to the CP. My feet were burning with every step down to the main road CP and not wanting to risk another "pringle" incident like last year, I decided to call it a day.

    As I was waiting for the Sherpa in Capel Curig, two rather despondent looking runners appeared and enquired about the bus. It seems they were from Wiltshire and had set off from Llanberis at 5.00am on a PBR attempt. They had called it a day at Capel after having dropped a lot of time on their first two sections.

    Re: Welsh 1000mtrs

    They've changed the bloody results!

    I'm now down as 4:00:04!

    Thing is Tim Davies, my own watch, and the marshall at the summit all said I was sub 4, I was sure I was 3:58 ish, 59 max. They've added 3 minutes 24 seconds to the results.

    More gutting is it took me 2 attempts to dib at the summit..

    Re: Welsh 1000mtrs

    It said on the website that there was a three minute error in the provisional results that needed to be corrected. Could this error be connected to a discussion I heard over the radio as I was passing checkpoint G? One of the marshals there was talking about how results had been deleted. Or maybe I was just delirious...

    Iain,

    Agree results are definitely still a couple of mins out. I was originally placed two mins faster than watch time - now given as two mins slower...

    Re: Welsh 1000mtrs

    Yeah, Jackie Lee reckoned she was a minute faster than originally stated, and they are now 3 minutes slower, so she's lost 4 minutes too.

    Almost everyone I've spoken too reckoned they were at the original time.

    I want my sub 4 1000m back! :-)

    Anyway I saved the old results so they are what I'm going off..

    I imagine that from Ogwen to Pen Y pass, will be a case of taking the heather terrace path (or the slightly lower one rather) up the side of Tryfan and then straight up across and down the other side.....you should ask our welsh cousins such as Iain R, or even the Master who knows a lot about this area
