Great Britain 9 September: Betws-y-Coed - Chester
The Highest Heights
At the bottom of the mountain we are greeted by Councillor Annwen Hughes, Chair of Gwynedd Council, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas, Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport, and Vince Hughes who has met the Peace Run on its 3 previous visits to Snowdon.
Lord Elis-Thomas is a dear friend of the Peace Run. He welcomes the runners and tells us how Snowdon's summit has been an important meeting point for conciliation and inspiration throughout history.
The first two runners to reach the peak. There is a cold rain and strong wind at the top of the mountain.
We were welcomed to the evening service of Compline, where our torch was blessed by Revd Denise Williams.
