In short: Great experience, friendly and well organised. In full: Running 50 miles is a serious undertaking and the route from Brecon to Cardiff was great. The organisation was good and everyone was very friendly. Only downsides were the goody bag (bottle of water, energy gel and a flapjack) and the fact it was actually over 51 miles (as is 50 miles wasn't enough). Overall though it is well worth doing and would recommend it to people wanting a challenge. Date of review: May 23, 2011
In short: I never realised London was so hilly or so muddy. In full: Great introduction to running beyond Marathon distance. The hills and the saturated clay mud made it impossible to run for large stretches. Would recommend trail shoes rather than road shoe. The organisation was good and I am sure this race will continue to grow into a much bigger event. Date of review: February 21, 2011
In short: Good Race for Serious Runners In full: You wouldnt do this race for the scenary but it was weel organised and friendly. I smashed my PB so I have gotta be happy with that. Date of review: February 9, 2009
In short: Excellent Race, Fantastic Weather and Glorious Scenary In full: This is what running is about, the race was a manageable size and there was very little overcrowding on the route. The weather was perfect and the scenary was uplifting. It needed to be in places to take my mind off the hills. I will be back next year for sure. Date of review: September 22, 2008
In short: Lovely Circuit, Great Marching Band! In full: This race was a "nice" community organised 10k, this was reflected in the uber cheap entrance fee, less than slick organisation and the moaning about late starts and lack of ribbon on the medal.
The course was varied and pleasant and challenging in the heat. It would have been better to have more water stops in view of the heat and distance marker would have been of benefit.
People should try to remember that this race has been organised by volunteers for the benefit of a marching band. It is bound to be a little rough around the edges. Date of review: May 12, 2008
