This is a tough road marathon starting in Lllanberis and climbing to Pen-y-Pass at 900 ft in the first 4 miles. The route then circles around Snowdon amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. Adam got off to a good start and passed through half way in 36th place but lost time on the final climb at 22 miles.
