Organisers inundated with entries for Llangollen Round Challenge

Entries for the 4th Llangollen Round Challenge are going really well, according to organisers.

They say they have already had more that last time with two months still in hand before the sponsored 35-mile hike is due to take place over two days on May 28 and 29.  

A spokesperson said: "What should we do? We can’t cater for too many. Stretching a point, we’ve decided to accept 100 more entries, and when those places are gone, the line must be drawn. You can keep updated on Facebook.

"We’re really excited about the way things are going, and we’re grateful to have had so much help from companies like Hafren Dyfrdwy, Arla Cheese, 9 Bran Food, Tesco and local supermarkets.  

"We’ll be needing a lot of food to cater for so many walkers at the stations around the course, so nearer the time, we’ll be asking if folk could actually bake a cake for us. One of our walkers last time said the Challenge was fuelled by home-made cake!.

"We would be very grateful for that, as we would for any other donations of biscuits, fruit, sweets etc.  Whatever is given means we don’t have to buy that from Cancer Research UK funds, which is brilliant. 

"Thank you, everyone, for your support of the Challenge. We couldn’t appreciate it more. Hopefully we can beat the sum raised for Cancer Research UK in 2018, which was £66,000."
