Seen a program earlier this year about former Welsh Rugby player turned adventurer Richard Parks doing the double Brutal. Program is still available on http://www.channel5.com/shows/race-to-the-pole if anyone interested - episode 3. I missed the Peru Ultra episode (2) so might go back and watch that one as well.
Did any of the Ultra runners on here do the inaugral Vale Coastal Ultra from Penarth to Ogmore by Sea this year? I went along to watch and really hoping they repeat it again next year. The company that organised it have the Brecon to Cardiff Ultra this weekend so hoping they might open entries for Vale one once that's out of the way.
Yeah, have looked in Snowdon FB page... loads of people asking for spare places so any that are available snapped up very quickly. Last year there were plenty near the date though. Great to see so many want to do it though. Sell out in 24 hours next year?
Someone got in there before me. Never mind. Like I said, if anyone else knows of any places going.
Wonder if they'll consider increasing the numbers in future years for this race given the record sell out time or is it not feasable given the course? Suppose getting accomodation anywhere near would be an issue if they say doubled the entries as well.
Our club race (a hilly 5 miler) was yesterday. Great turnout including the first Welsh female finisher at Cardiff Half and male / overall winner of Swansea Half running. Not bad for a small valley event.
As there seems to be at least a couple of Ultra runners on here, has anyone done the JW Ultra from Stratford upon Avon to Birmingham? First-timer friendly? Well marshalled / signposted? Ultra was the aim for 2016 but I'm tempted to give this one a go!?
