    Snowdon or Ben Rinnes

    Both Snowdon And Ben Rinnes are on the same day and i can`t decide which to do (thought a poll might help swing it ).

    I have run Snowdon a few times, but never done Ben Rinnes five tops which i feel may be more interesting than the tourist path on Snowdon.

    So as well as a poll as to which i should do i would like to solicit information on The Ben Rinnes Five Tops race from any of you that have done it.

    Thanks

    Thumbs up Re: Snowdon or Ben Rinnes

    Head north JohnK.

    Did Ben Rinnes last year and will probably be going again this year. Much more fun than Snowdon, although the big path up and down Ben Rinnes itself is quite tough on your feet in fell shoes, rather like Snowdon.

    Plenty of other entertainment going on at the Highland Games meet, so if you've got family in tow there are things to keep them busy while you are running.

    The course was well marked so no real navigational issues, as such it's probably a bit of a soft touch for an AL in that respect, but good running and minus the hordes that will be swarming over Snowdon.

    already looking conclusive, and the lack of tourist`s and dogs on 6ft long leads that seem to afflict Snowdon is i must say a big attraction.

    Probably won`t be any discarded water bottle carriers either
