More about the race from the official website:

Ring O’ Fire is an annual 135 mile coastal ultra marathon circumnavigating the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. This epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path around the island.

It looks like a stunning (and brutal) course.

Almost all the coastline of Anglesey is a designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and runners will encounter a wide variety of terrain, including: estuaries, sandy beaches, cliff top paths, sand dunes, farmers’ fields and sections of forest.

It was Kate’s first formal engagement since the birth of Prince George in July, she was obviously enjoying herself as shown this screen grab via British Royals on Twitter.

From the Daily Post:

The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to a group of local children, who handed Kate a bunch of flowers and a handmade butterfly-shaped decoration.

Kate said thank you and added that she would pass the decoration to George when she gets home as he loves bright colours.

Kate wore the Zara White Printed Top with Bow top, previously seen when Kate and William were in Switzerland for a wedding.

The top, which some refer to as having a “hospital print” for its similarity to gowns worn when in the hospital originally sold for $59, but is long past its original season.

Atop the blouse she was in her Ralph Lauren jacket, similar to these two; the biggest distinction is that Kate’s does not have a second pocket on the right side of the piece.

It is a piece she had has for several years. Below we have a closer look at the garment.

The Duchess also wore her trusty Pied a Terre Imperias.

I’m not sure yet precisely which pair of jeans she is wearing, and will update as soon as that is sorted out.

UPDATED: One reason I was pausing on the jeans is because of the rolled cuff.  It’s not how we generally see Kate styling denim.

A commenter makes a very good suggestion (thank you!) that Kate might be wearing the Topshop Maternity Moto Black Leigh jeans.

I also did a comparison from the back, but it is almost pointless because the black hides the detailing.

My instincts say our kindly commenter is spot-on, and Kate is wearing the Topshop Maternity Denim.

For those wondering who was watching George, Rebecca English shared an update on Twitter.
