Cross Foxes September Newsletter
You’re probably all thinking the same thing, where did the summer go, so this newsletter will try and prolong the fun we have had and list a few things that are coming up? After all Snowdonia is no less beautiful in the winter and the outdoor types amongst you should be even more keen to challenge themselves out here when things get a little raw. Isn’t it a basic human need to be taken out of your comfort zone now and then?
So Saturday 7th October, the Coed y Brenin half marathon. WINTER TRAIL WALES | Run Coed y Brenin (runcyb.com). I am doing this (in my case a combo of fast walking and running due to the pain!) and I have will a couple of my kids with me. Anyone that stay at the Cross the night before can join us for a pasta loading meal at £5 a head that night and we will through in a lift there and back to help ease the traffic at the venue. Stay a second night and you can watch me fall asleep after half a pint of real ale. Actually you can stay for £20 the second night, I’m feeling generous.
The Traws Eryri: Traws Eryri | Cycling UK. This one is haunting me, I have to try it so I have pencilled in to attempt it over four days from Friday 3rd November. Contact the Cross if you fancy it and I will email you my plans as they evolve. Its a big one, 225 kms and over 4700 meters of climbing, yes you read that right. We now have bike storage, and a bike fixing station to accommodate for those attempting it. Since The Cross Foxes marks our halfway point of the cycle route, it's a perfect location for whose taking on the challenge.
Finally, I’m not going to bombard you in this edition but an activity weekend, the ‘Fox Fest’, is being planned for the weekend of 1st December. A non competitive mass participation weekend of running, biking and cold water dipping.
