Kelly set to take on massive challenge of Snowdonia marathon

WESTBURY Harrier Kelly Winstone and Team Bath’s Dan Jones are among the local entries for the Brooks Snowdonia Marathon on Saturdaykellywinstone morning.

This daunting race encircles Snowdon and has a real kick in the tail with a daunting two mile long climb from 22 to 24 miles followed by a thigh-cramping two miles descent to the finish. So why has Jones opted for the event?

“It is something I have always wanted to do because my dad is from that area and I used to go there regularly,” said Dan.

“I have recced the last for miles so I know what to expect at the end of the race – and the legs are sure to be killing me at that point! It is probably the hardest marathon around but I am looking forward to it.”

Kelly (pictured left) is running the race to raise money for Tenovus Cancer Care and it will be her second marathon of the year after clocking 3:48.31 in London

“I’m nervous and worry that I won’t stand up to this challenge but I know I’m doing it for all the right reasons,” said Kelly on n her Facebook page.

Good luck to both runners.
