Snowdonia Marathon

65 year old Stan Appleton tackled the Snowdonia Marathon, his first attempt at this distance in 20 years, and had to also combat gale force winds as well the 759m of ascent. Only 29 of the 2,500 entrants managed a sub three hour time, but the friendly encouragement around the course enabled Stan to complete the tough 26.2 mile course in 4 hours 48 minutes.
