Wales 31 March: Llangollen - Brecon

Llangollen - Welshpool - Brecon

We awoke this morning to the bah-ing of sheep and lambs and the sound of birdsong. Llangollen Youth Hostel was enveloped in a mist of low clouds, promising an atmospheric morning’s running.

The morning may have been chilly and damp, but the send-off from Llangollen was very warm. We were greeted by the Clerk of the Town Council, Ian Parry, at the Council House at 9am and were invited into the Council chamber.

The ideal of Harmony is one we share with Llangollen which has been hosting an international Eisteddfod (a traditional Welsh festival of musical competitions) every summer since 1947. ( www.international-eisteddfod.co.uk ). The first one was held in order to foster harmony between nations after the end of the Second World War. It was a great success, and has continued in the same spirit ever since. Last year the Eisteddfod was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize – a great recognition of years of service.

We received an equally warm welcome at lunchtime from the Mayor of Welshpool, Mrs Shane Squibb. Both she and her husband were very enthusiastic in their greeting and had even brought their grandchildren along to meet us.

So by now we are all feeling very at home in Wales and are really enjoying the running – often on scenic (and hilly!) country roads bordered by bright daffodils and ever-curious sheep, and lambs whose running speed on a downhill slope can be quite impressive!

We finished in the evening at Upper Chapel, having covered approximately 100 miles in the day.

Distance: 160km
