Llanelli - Feb 2012
Just noticed this today a new 10 miler on the Great Welsh Marathon / Llanelli HM / 10k course.
Ideally placed in Feb for the Llanelli HM.
Only thing is Feb can be pretty bleak on the Coastal Path so fingers crossed for good weather!
sounds good.........great coast there.......and lovely and flat.......my 1/2 and full marathon PB's are there
Be honest with you id rather do a 10 mile training run all that money for just a medal.......NO THANKS......

£12 is not much given all the organisation and prep that has to go into a new race, especially considering entry in to the great south run this year is £40, isn't that just 10 miles with a medal at the end as well?
I know the cost of events is going up but £40 is extortionate for a 10 mile race, £12 is far more reasonable.
and as Kev said, it's good race practice. It will have to be, there won't be any medals as the organisers have chosen tee shirts as a memento instead! (big mistake organisers!!!)
After todays X C fancy having a go at this. Did an 8 miler a couple of weeks back (Lliswerry), be nice to see if I can sustain that pace for another 2 miles. Still accepting entries it seems, except this machine locks up when I try the online entry.
Oh and I'd pick a T shirt anyday over a useless medal. Good decision organisers.
