    The Preseli Beast!!

    Attachment 6785 For those wanting to try something different why not try the newly hatched Preseli Beast in Pembrokeshire on April 27th!
    It's a cracking off road course over 23.5 miles, with approx 4,700 ft, with views of the Preseli hills, and the stunning Newport bay. There'll be water/feed stations, and some cheerfull marshalls to encourage you on in various places . There's speicially printed T-shirts, a goody bag, memento, soup, cake, and tea/coffee for all competitors. The website for more details and the entry form is at http://preselibeast.wordpress.com/ There's even a 6km partly off-road family waymarked route for those supporting loved ones who have time on their hands. 'Can you tame the Beast?' If you think not, then you might be interested in tackling the 'Beast Bach!' ('Bach' is Welsh for small) It's a 10 mile mini version of the main event for those who want a taster of what it's like.

    This'll be a good excuse to come to Pembrokeshire for something different, and still have time to go to the beach afterwards. Happy days.

    That looks great. Can't do it though, as it clashes with the Highlander MM. Maybe 2014!

    "not sure which one though...[/QUOTE]" What?? As if you were going to do anything less than the Beast Rob. lol:wink: Doubt there'll be any new tops for you to bag though Rob, but you never know. There are a few hidden gems which rarely get visited.

    By back yard, I mean where I am currently living which is Haverfordwest (just near the cricket club) so this would only be 20 mins away as compared to travelling 2 hours to around Brecon Beacons / Black Mountains.

    As you say I will come up with a plan. Its looking increasingly like not being able to do the Fellsman as I will be working near Brecon on Exercise, so hopefully I can sneak back for just one day that weekend, but I have also seen that Cribyn is that same day so I will have to see what I can magic up with work.

    Preperations are going well for this inaugrual event. The wife has been working hard on the T-shirt design which are going to be awesome! Nearly got all the trophies sponsored, and the list of 'cake bakers' is growing. I took a local who's training for the Beast out on Saturday for 17miles of it, and he came back grining from ear to ear! And he's only just got into off road running! Ah, the joy of the fells.
