Last night we chatted to Paddy Buckley winter record smasher Damian Hall who last week ran this snow-covered 61 mile route over 47 Welsh mountains to record a new time of 21 hours 30 mins. Damian is also a coach and sponsored by Inov-8 so he gives some excellent ultra training and gear tips in this chat, thanks Damo!
