In conjunction with Inov 8, The Climbers Shop & Joe Brown Shops we are delighted to be hosting this very exciting event at our café this Autumn. Nicky will be talking about her incredible triple double classic mountain rounds, The Bob Graham Round, The Ramsey Round & The Paddy Buckley Round.
As we were lucky enough to see Nicky at the café both before & after her Paddy Buckley Round this feels especially exciting & I fully expect her to motivate me to finally have a crack at a ‘mere’ single Paddy next year.
Full details & how to purchase your tickets are available by going onto www.climbersshop.com. We expect to sell out so please be quick to avoid disappointment.
All ticket proceeds go to Nicky’s chosen charity ‘Odyssey All’.
The Café’s last orders for hot food will be at 6:00 pm but we will have snacks available after that & will have an extended drinks license in place until 10:00 pm.
If that isn’t all good enough at 5:30 pm prior to the presentation there will be a run with Inov 8 & Nicky from the Joe Brown Shop in Capel Curig, it’s free but again you must pre-reserve your place.
A fell race more or less on my doorstep which I’ve yet to try, maybe this year?
10.3K with 562 metres of ascent it counts as the first of three races making up the Meirionnydd clubs Winter Series.
Entry on the day includes soup, team entry free (3 to count).

Ever popular end of season fell race across the Northern slopes of the Carneddau.
Sadly due to a little date I have in Nepal I won’t be able to support new race organiser Russel Owen as he takes over the reigns from Chris Near but good luck Russel, I hope the turnout is as good as ever!
On-line entry only at www.fabian4.co.uk
Use car parks at GR 754769, 759769 & 749770 free bus to start, please car share & allow extra time.
16.1K with 594 metres of ascent & of course that bog crossing, why wouldn’t you!

We are delighted to welcome back Mike Lees to host this Quiz in aid of our local Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation. This popular Christmas time event can tend to fill up so it’s advisable to book your teams table early.
Minimum entry fee per team member is £2 but please give more in aid of such a worthy cause.
Mike will no doubt have you laughing out loud & scratching your heads in equal measure.
Food served until 7:00pm with the Quiz getting under way at 8:00pm & drinks license until 11:00pm.
May 16, 2020:
In conjunction with The Alpine Club we are delighted to be hosting a Mick Fowler Presentation in early 2020.
Further details of the presentation will follow in due course but for now we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment. Entry is free to A.C. members but non-members can also attend for a reasonable £5.
On the night itself we will stop taking hot food orders at 6:00 pm but will have an extended drinks licence in place.
Contact the cafe to reserve your seats.
July 4, 2020:
We are pleased to confirm this year’s charity event will be 16th May 2020.
This will be our 6th Year of fund raising since the Earthquake in April 2015, more details of the day’s events will be published in early 2020.
The event will actually start on 15th May with Paul setting off on the first of 23 laps of Capel Curig in the hope of running 100 miles over 24 Hours to complete in time for Mike Lees Quiz/Auction the following evening. With each lap being a little over 4 miles there is little excuse not to join him & ‘hold’ his hand for a lap or two.
In the meantime if you want to be involved in the day simply contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Held in conjunction with the Capel Curig Village Show this is an ideal introduction to Fell running in one of Snowdonia’s classic races.
8.7K with 700 metres of ascent, registration opens within The Moel Siabod Cafe at 12:00pm with Gaby’s Goulash included within the entry fee & served to all runners at the finish.
There is also a Junior’s race at 14:05 for Over 10’s, Under 14’s & Under 16’s.
Small charge to park on the Show Ground going to the Village fund.
Entry on the Day.
