After an early Saturday morning start it was time for a trip to mid Wales to cover this years Man V Horse event at Llanwrtyd Wellsin Powys. The event attracted well in exess of 200 runners and 50 horses and riders. The course is run over 22 miles in and around the footpaths lanes and rivers of the local countyside. This year Sly Dai, ridden by local girl Llinos Jones won the event, finishing some 10 minuites before Bristol based man Haggai Chepkwony. It’s safe to say I won’t be trying the marathon next year! Although I have to say I will be keeping a close eye on the Green Events Website. ( And by the way thanks ever so much to Bryn Celyn Guest house. Thanks for the tea and hob nobs! ) See you for the bog snorkelling !!!!!
