The togs on the hill on Saturday deserve a medal for their work in bringing the images back down to sea level after a drenching. Loads more great shots from FRP man Al Tye are now online, along with some crackers by Neale Lewis-Jones

    Hi Matt,

    Steven, you and the organisers did a hell of a job over the weekend. Really enjoyed the press conference and meeting Kenny and all the stars. The race itself was in challenging conditions but I think that helped the hardcore mountain runners in the end.

    Everyone was really friendly and all twenty+ of the Irish contingent had great craic after the race. Some of the lads went searching for late night food only to find everything shut and then meeting one of the locals who felt sorry for them, took them home and made loads of ham rolls and pot noodles to bring back to everyone in the hotel! That was really sound of them and will be long remembered!

    Thanks a million,
    Jason

    (oh and by the way, sorry to not spend too much time with you boys, I didnt finish with Robbie til after ten, had a beer and was whacked….)

    Cheers

    Matt

    last weekend was the first time that I have had the priviledge of going to the Snowdon run and to say that I was blown away is literal! I think I can safely say that it must be without doubt the definitive mountain race…..wind….rain….mist….etc etc. I can only praise ALL of those who organised such a challenging event . Having stood at half way in the rain with the dedicated marshalls I take my hat off to all who attempted / completed the run. One further point, I am flattered that you chose to post some of my piccies on here….it made the trek worthwhile…..Finally….you need to be on the telly mate…you are a natural M C…….Well done to Steven and all of the team….Da Iawn!
