Looks a bit nasty from 3 miles on! Good views I hope at least :)

Is this a decent bag for this kind of race?

You need to check the kit requirement for the race (FRA website should help) and then decide if you can get it in

Is nasty a typo for awesomely, life-affirmingly tasty?

I've run it three times, twice in Roclite 295s which was the right choice and once in Mudclaw 272s which wasn't as there is a long tarmac stretch out of town and back in. I must confess to be dismayed by the price now, the last time I ran it (2014) it was only £7 in advance, it seems to me against the spirit of fell running to go up so much in such a short time. In South Wales anyway, fell is the last bastion of non-ripoff race entries.

Fantastic race, bloody hard though. 33rd to the top, finished in 53rd...my descending leaves a lot to be desired.

My Salomon speed cross shoes didn't hold up at all very well, slippery on rock, and painful underneath from the rocks, good once back on the road..bit late then though!

Will be back next year though, loved it. Need to buy some proper fell shoes I think..

Got something to say?

I'm doing Cader in a few weeks and was hoping for some advice from folks that have done this before...
