Tom and Rhian thoroughly enjoyed Snowdonia Marathon Eryri
great conditions for running...

This was the third time Rhian has taken part in the Snowdonia Marathon Eryri and second time round forTom.
" I really enjoyed my run " said Rhian.   " There were over 2,000 entries this year and it is an amazing experience to be part of such a huge event."
"A lot of pople were wearing pink this year to show support for April Jones and all our race names were in pink.  I had been asked to run in a special 'April Jones T-shirt' and Tom was running this year to raise money for Cancer Research Wales."
" Conditions in the morning were ideal for running.  The weather was crisp, sunny and clear - so the views were fantastic.  It was quite cold- which is fine for everyone running - but a bit chilly for the spectators I would imagine!"
 "The atmosphere at the start was brilliant.  We set off at 10.30 and the support all along the way from spectators and marshalls really gave you a good boost exactly when you needed it! Near the end people were handing out biscuits and jelly babies - great !!"
" The first thirteen miles I really enjoyed , but then you think "I've got to do that distance all over again now!"  and mile 18 - 20 I found a bit tough as my feet started to hurt - I think I need new trainers! - but a few cheers from spectators and the amazing views got me going  again! "
 " Tom and I hadn't been able to do as much training as last year so I was pretty pleased with my time of 4 hours, 34 minutes and 58 seconds and Tom had a great time of 3 hours,  44 minutes and 30 seconds."
 "Knowing that I wasn't going to be able to achieve a PB this year meant that I could really enjoy the race a bit more.  The scenery and views along the route couldn't have been better.  It really was a perfect, beautiful day."
   " I always say at the end of the race  "never again!"  but then after a bit I say... " well - maybe..... "
