In short: great day great race again In full: After the weather of last year what a lovely day this was, cold to start but clear blue sky`s and even the wind dropped towards the end, could not have had a better day. Some people had a bit of a job to get in and the start was slightly delayed, but to be honest they should have been there earlier, bit of a negative with the wheel chair races charging back at you they really need a lead biker to clear there path.

In short: A great course and very special when the sun shines In full: Overall a great event - mainly due to a very attractive and forgiving course, with surperb sea views. Organisation pretty good as well. The only blot concerns the logistics of getting in and getting out - long queues both ways, which meant big delays in people getting to start (at least they pushed back the start by 10 mins). I have done all 5 Llanelli half's and as they get bigger each year, so the organisers need to think about how to cope with the increasing transport problems. Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: Lots of good points, let down by easily fixed problems In full: Trafic chaos trying to get out of the carpark, we were lucky we were only 20mins from home, felt very sorry for those with a long drive ahead of them. Would have been easily solved with a marshall or two. Definitely not flat as advertised. Between miles 10-11 we had to turn to head back, the sign was for the Llanelli Duathon telling us to turn back but there was no marshall at this point which left many of us confused (I was near the back of the field so don't know if this had been a problem for the whole race or not?) They ran out of medals by the time I finished and there were a fair few still out behind me. Plenty of loo's at the start & good support on route. I won't do this race again but not because of any of these points, just that I don't want to run that distance again, will be sticking to 10k's
In short: Fantastic Race, shame about the parking. In full: After last year I was never going to run this race again. I so glad i changed my mind. THe run its self was well organized and even managed a PB.
The one down side was the traffic. 30 mins to get through Llanelli on the way in and an hour just to get out of the car park!!!!! I'm sure this will be sorted out for next year and I'll be back again Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: Lovely weather, beautiful scenery and very welcoming. Really enjoyable. In full: Many thanks to all the friendly marshalls - in the headquarters tent and on the course. Excellent to have such a large car park so near to the start/finish. Good quality t-shirt. Really enjoyed the day - very special. Many thanks to all involved. Date of review: March 7, 2010
In full: Thoroughly enjoyed the event, but found mile markers particularly towards the end were out by some margin. Would even go as far as saying the course was alittle long. Needed to arrive early to avoid the traffic, and getting out of the carpark later needed a bit more co-ordination from the marshalls. Date of review: March 7, 2010
