Every year there is the Mathematics Colloquium of Wales at Gregynog. This year it's from the 21st to the 23rd of May. The week before, my girlfriend (Zoë) and I will be running from Cardiff to Gregynog.

This is a 150 km trip and we plan to do it with all the equipment we need (water, change of clothes etc...) on our backs. We'll run around 40km in 2 stints per day (20 km each) staying in B&B's at night. We won't be trying to beat any records time wise which is why we're setting out on the 16th of May (which will give us 1 day slack if we need it). 

Here's the link to our charity pages:

We've been planning this for 3 months now and are both excited to "make it official" by telling people :)


  1. Just seen what you guys are up to! Great idea! I was running around the Castell Coch area over the weekend and found loads of trail running in its immediate vicinity. Are you sticking to trails or will you be road running?

    1. Sorry for the ridiculously late reply... We kind of stuck to trails as much as possible but really we went as much as the crow flies as we could to minimise distance. It was a bit of a mix :)
