In short: fine day out in a beautiful, over-looked, part of Wales In full: Bucking the trend by not sending out race nos/any information to those who've entered in advance. I also felt a bit sorry for the (smelly ?!) girls who could'nt take a shower. That said, most races have no such facilities...
Beginners may also sulk at not getting a medal/T-shirt - I prefer cream eggs, low entry fees and a comfy bar at the finish though. Also good to see the Welsh AA promoting by making this a championship race
Many thanks to all who organised Date of review: April 9, 2007
In short: Gets better and better - the holy grail of trail ? In full: Thanks to everyone involved in organising and supporting this fine race. Much more fun than running on road and, for lazey types like me, nothing too serious in the way of hills.
Great support, scenery and organisation Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: grand day out with fine people in the most overlooked part of the Brecon Beacons In full: Multi-terrain in the true sense of the word !!
Scrambling up/down/through, up/down/through (etc) the boggy heights of the high Beacons, rugged limestone and swallow holed hinterland, quarries, bracken festooned moorland, ancient oak forest, rugged farmland of the Talybont/Usk area with the occasional bit of history (Chartists caves) or flat bit (ridge or canal) to help pass the time. The best £6 you will ever spend.. Date of review: October 15, 2006
In short: "the sun always shines in Barry" ! In full: Once again, a well organised, well supported, challenging but very rewarding little race. You'll curse the hill, but come back for more next year. Date of review: May 7, 2006
