Are you up for the challenge?

August 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Chris Sampson is taking part in the ‘The Coastal Challenge’ on Anglesey.

Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which covers 95% of the coast. It passes through landscape that includes a mixture of farmland, coastal heath, dunes, salt-marsh, foreshore, cliffs and a few small pockets of woodland. Compared to the Jurassic Coast and the Atlantic Coast challenges the Anglesey Coast presents a slightly kinder challenge as its a bit flatter but still a tough challenge under foot.

Day 1 was 30 miles,

Day 2 is 28 and

Day 3 is 29 miles, ………a true Ultra Marathon.
