Peter Chappill & Kev Lovett Lincsquad members will be organizing a low key training camp at The Llyn Gwynant Camp Site, Snowdonia between 11th and 19th May 2019. The timetable will be dependent upon the weather, but Pete has mapped out several run routes, bike routes and swim/kayak training packages for those who require some guidance. For those who prefer to do their own thing there is plenty to go at, as the site is at the base Snowdon with of 4 up to the top, plus some excellent undulating and hilly biking. Swimming and kayaking can be done from the campsite.
