Swallowed up and spat out again by a man eating bog : Moelwyn race

Very fine weather for a return visit to Ras Y Moelwyn in Blaenau Ffestiniog. Run by the community, a great race, both in terms of route and the atmosphere, Soup, Samba band and face painting included.

I was 10 minutes faster than last year which I was very pleased with. Just before the Dam on the decent from Moelwyn Fach, I was swallowed up to the waist by a man eating bog and then spat out again. Note to the many people taking photo's, that would be a great place to station yourselves next year as I was not the 1st or last person to be part consumed by the peat, moss and water.

Next weekend is the Highland Fling Race which should make an interesting experiment and a new experience.
