Ultra-distance fell runner Marc Roberts has shared his passion for running in the Welsh mountains with a series of breath-taking personal photographs as heavy snow, freezing temperatures, and blizzards suddenly returned to the peaks again this week – despite it being the first week of May.
Marc, who has missed the brutal challenges of competitive races over the past year due to Covid-19 restrictions, seized the opportunity for a hard training session, tackling some of North Wales best-known mountain courses.
He admitted: “It’s the first time I’ve really ventured up with some snow. It makes the mountains look more majestic in my humble opinion.
“Glyderau today from Marchlyn Mawr to Y Garn and back, picking up Carnedd Y Filiast, Mynydd Perfedd and Foel Goch en-route.
“Some snow showers and reduced visibility for about 15 minutes but good otherwise. Strange weather and all the seasons in one day.”
