Hi, just to clarify, it is not compulsory to raise sponsorship for St Davids Hospice Care, or any charity. Tenovus are promoting the event on their site as a fundraiser for them too, but the choice is yours.
Yes, it's a charity event, but well sponsored, so you may not get a medal, but you will get a nice technical t shirt. Darren Campbell's company PAS are also providing goody bags and prize winners funds.
Unlike some events, there are no Event Organisers fees to cover, so all proceeds will go to help terminally ill people throughout s e Wales.
It is a shame about the dates, but the calendar is pretty full, not just with the races, but the rugby too.
The route uses pathways that have only recently been built, so it will be something a little different. It is hoped that the event will grow to replicate the success of Cardiff over the next 10 years.
