the cardiff ultra would be fine in road shoes....unless some incredible amount of rain......its on tarmac for large parts and the trails are mainly firm even in winter

This is no good, I've been looking through these lists with interest, now mine has expanded, I have my first IM planned for 2015, now I'm thinking next year ?

Must spend less time entering events and more time training for them.
