wow, how far is it across Wales?like the sound of mad stuff, although not sure it's something I'd do (but never say 'never' eh?)

One of our friends is running/cycling Offa's Dyke next week to raise funds for the local Chemotherapy Unit; he needs to run 30 miles a day for the first two days!!

when i did the run across wales we did it at the narrowest part which is from around aberystwyth.,.so only 42 miles..............would be a lot further if you went from fishguard area to chepstow 

I would love to run Offas dyke some day.will wait until all the kids leave home........

off for a run now ...

Hi all

Rhoose here and trying to get my lardy self ready for Swansea Bay 10 and Bristol HM, very one paced at the moment..

Suppose I should get myself to club nights more often.

hi all, Seren is right it isn't "that" far across Wales. We did the other way so started by Clun and finished in Clarach bay. Little error added a few miles so think we did 47m.
I do fancy offas dyke though and guess it would be easy to follow...... Hmmm could be added to my 40th year challenges....
Seren are you doing Llanelli Mara again? I will if I fail London ballot again...which is prob a certainty.

Hi all,

I guess I would be described best as an exile - from the Rhondda but live in Sussex. I started running at the begining of the year and will be doing the Beachy Head (South Downs) marathon at the end of October.

Another one from Cardiff here- and I'm also running the Half

This is a cracking thread now! Awesome to see so many people here!

Personally had a bad week not ran at all and eaten like a big fat pig! Too many hours at work!! Guna try and get home on time tomorrow on time and do a small one!

a Jack here, getting on in years but not speed 

I'm doing Cardiff half this year, not done it for a while. I'm not doing Swansea Bay, I like the course, but not the time of day they put it on!

there are a bunch of other Welsh runners


and there's a Port Talbot thread hanging around somewhere

Yippee - after resting my foot it seems better and I managed 8 miles today at the 2 rivers run in Presteigne.
Ron Skilton half in Llanwrtyd in October is a must do if anyone is looking for a hilly half the week after Cardiff.
Matt - you are allowed to stuff your face as long as it is in anticipation of running, right??
Swansea Imp - do you do many ultras?
24/09/2012 at 14:06

Thanks Camlo, will quote you when Im standing on the scales crying lol.......

24/09/2012 at 14:18

well I've decided that the Great Welsh Marathon in Llanelli (or at least the Half bit) on 21st April is an achievable target, so I'm planning in signing up for it 

24/09/2012 at 15:16

camlo it will be my first ultra looking forward to it i think

Hmmm well I got into London..... Would have loved to do Llanelli again to be honest but I'll be 40 next year so ideal opportunity to raise some cash for Birmingham children's hospital with a stream of wacky events.
