Welsh Mountain Run Saturday 31st January

Its about time the Welsh held a big meet and Im hoping that this will be just that.

The date is provisional at the moment, have chosen that weekend as its just after pay day.

The plan:

An 80 mile drive out around the Brecon Beacons and surrounding area, on roads made for Skylines, concluded at a pub, for some warming food.

The challenge:
Collect the clues to get to the next destination, you will not be able to get lost!

I am looking to find cheap accomodation for anyone that will need it, and will offer a few beds myself for those who cant afford the hotel (though you must like sofas).

There will be a prize for the person who gets back to the end destination first, and a small donation will be collected off each participant for a local charity.

The route will take in three 'TopGear' roads, including my favourite one, which will have to be done twice

This is not a race!

If you are up for this or have any ideas, please put your name down in the usual way, and add your suggestions.

I will be posting up pictures of the route in the next week, to give you an idea of what it will be like.

Add your names below:

Triv you got to come anyway!!!!

The last part of the hunt, is very addictive, i love it, and due to location you have to double back, as the rest of route isnt suitable for lowered cars, but I do think some people will forfeit the chance of winning to have another go at it.

Come on peeps get your names down as need to start sneakily printing all the info, hehe

Hey, will find you a cheap b&b if needed, or will get group booking on travel lodge, if have enough numbers for it.

Will probs start around 12ish, not too early as im a grumpy cow first thing
