There's a balance to be had - I agree - I have no special desire to see interviews with cardboard boxes or vegetables, but there are plenty of serious runners who aren't at the front of the pack - it would broaden the appeal I think.
I must confess I'm disappointed with the s4c coverage of Eryri this year - the entire program consisted of solely watching the front 3-4 runners and not a jot from the other 2000+ entrants .
I can understand them only talking to welsh speakers and ignoring all the rest but can you imagine how exciting the coverage of the Great North Run/London/Edinburgh and all the others would be if they only focussed on pros at the front and not all the other exceedingly goodlooking/magnificant runners all behind them??
The flip side of this is that myself and all my 30+ friends who participated must now train harder and all get in the top 5 somehow .
Seriously - come on S4C - you'll get more money from advert sponsors if you appeal to a wider audience - and yes, some of them aren't welsh if you can bear to accept it
