    So when are Eryri organising the Beddgelert Boundary Race?

    Someone ran it... Read a report somewhere (possibly on here?). Maybe IainR...?

    Dark Peak run the Bradfield Boundary every year as a traditional Xmas run. I beleive it is the largest parish boundary in England...

    My Brother-In-Law was vicar of Bleanau FFestiniog and other parishes. His patch included most of the Paddy south of Snowdon and the top half of the Rhinogs. A huge area.

    I like the look of that. I did a virtual run of it in the downstairs toilet this morning with the Harveys 1:40000.
    Get fit for the real run this summer. My sister-in-law still lives in BF so a good base for exploring.

    Keep posting John. Travs comment was in no way offensive or a personal dig at you. As he says, he innocently used a figure of speech.

    Your posts are always valued.

    People ignoring travel advice probably have made a big contribution to Cumbria having some of the fastest rising cases of covid 19

    So please follow the guidelines and help everybody stay safe
    Back in March, one of the UK's hotspots was the Cartmel Penninsula which I found astounding.
    That wasn't tourist driven.

    Well, there were a heck of a lot more tourists about in March and April than Iíve ever known- Iíve never seen the Caravan Park behind our house as full.
    But, yknow, what happens happens. Everyoneís got to be somewhere. Iím dead lucky to have Hampsfell on my doorstep. It was lovely up there this morning. I thought to myself ďthisíll do for meĒ.
