Manx Mountain Invite – with accommodation!
Club member Jackie Lee extends an open invitation for Eryri to send a team to tackle the Manx Mountain Marathon.
28th September 2013 – 50k /8000′ (also a shorter race for those not up to the full distance)
Organised by the Manx Fell Runners, the classic very long race begun in 1970 on the Isle of Man has been re-branded as the Man Mountain Ultra, but it still remains mostly the same tough route (now with an extra hill), and the same challenge.
Jackie would like to see an Eryri gang go over and take the team prize as they did three years ago. They’ll also try to find ‘homestay’ accommodation for everyone.
There’s also a cracking night out in Port Erin afterwards if they’ve got the stamina!
Information on the race and online entry can be found at manxfellrunners.org/iom-mountain-ultra
If anyone is interested then leave a reply comment at the bottom of this item so that everyone can see who’s up for it.
