In short: Excellent In full: Superbly organised, great scenery and a lovely off-road course. Have done this the last 4 years and this was the best so far. Congratulations to all those involved. If you haven't run this give it a go. You won't be disappointed. Will be back next year.
In short: Great event in danger of becoming too expensive In full: Raced this event for the last 5 years and the cost has gone up dramatically, number of entries looked down on last year too. Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Excellent race. Enjoyed it every time I've raced here! In full: After running Bath Half for past 3 years, decided to try Llanelli Half and I loved it! A great course, beautiful scenery, great PB potential.
Will definitely do this race again! Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Great fun well organised race - just the right size! In full: My first time at Llanelli and I was pleasantly surprised. Brilliant access to the start / finish, (100 metres from car park) made things easy for the 1500 or-so of us.
The (chip-timed) route follows 2 out-and-back loops along the coast from the Start/Finish area which keeps things interesting. Some mild undulations, but otherwise a pretty flat and fast course. Crowd support was sparse along the course, but welcoming and plentiful at the finish...
Water was plentiful, paperweight / beanie hat at the finish better than a medal IMHO.
No real bad points, if I had to improve anything then maybe a sports / recovery drink / banana at the finish? Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Back to brilliance In full: Problems corrected from last year ... so this is again an event to enter. Fantastic marshals, mementos great value for money - especially against Bath and others which are almost twice the cost ;)
The weather held good and I loved the earlier start - not so much traffic and able to get home in time for Sunday dinner.
Will be back next year
Many thanks to the organisers Date of review: March 6, 2011
