    The Fan Dance Summer Edition

    Unnamed Road, Brecon LD3 8NL, UKView event
    1 review
    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km non-navigational race over two sides of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. This infamous route has long been a part of SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) Selection and is considered the yardstick of a candidate's potential to perform well on Test Week and ultimately pass the Special Forces Selection programme.

    Starting at the iconic old red phone box the race goes straight up to the summit checkpoint of Pen Y Fan and, after descending "Jacob's Ladder", continues along an undulating stone vehicle track (the "Roman Road") to the second checkpoint which also serves as a tea stop and turnaround point. Then, taking the route in reverse, racers climb back up "The Fan" via Jacob's ladder and pass through the summit checkpoint a second time before legging their way back down to the finish at the old red phone box.

    The route is a real lung buster that throws everything at you, including the elements. There are steady slopes that allow a solid jogging pace, shocking inclines that have you almost on your hands and knees, loose stone tracks that require cautious foot placements and a forested vehicle track that allows for some rapid going. Even SAS recruits at the height of their physical abilities regard beating the clock in this event as a serious challenge, and all know its capacity to hurt. Aside from the race aspect of this event, just getting to the end is an accomplishment and something to be proud of.

    The Fan Dance is open to ANYONE looking for a unique challenge: be it personal, competitive, as a sponsored participant in aid of your favourite charity or as part of a team building exercise. As per real Special Forces Selection, the event will be staged in both summer and winter (both load-bearing and clean fatigue).

      This event is brilliant! My favourite race ever! It is run in Summer and Winter on the SAS route as per the regiments tests by ex-SAS. Your aim is get round in 4hrs. The issue is a mountain in the way and it’s a 15m TAB not run... TAB is tactical advance to battle. So you have to have everything required to survive and engage the enemy... well stay warm and cook. You can do it clean, you can do it Sat and Sunday and Saturday night... so suddenly it’s an Ultra. The atmosphere is brilliant And the views on the hills amazing. You learn a lot on the race and in prep about survival and I felt it really helped me prioritise for the MDS - even though it’s totally different. The organisers are passionate about supporting ordinary people to complete and that really comes through. Mainfield backpack weight in boots is 16kg so you will need to strength train. Good luck

    This a chip-timed 5 mile (approx.) mixed terrain race set largely within the 220 acres of Porthkerry Country Park with stunning views of the Bristol Channel and Glamorgan Heritage Coast. This race has established itself as a popular fixture on the local running calendar and has hosted the prestigious Welsh Short Course Trail Championship.

    • Did the event in 2017

      This is a small club organised run which takes place almost entirely within Porthkerry park - this made pre race logistics include number pick up stress free. The start did remind me of school cross country all lined up on a field with a taped course. Apart from one downhill section this course is all off road, there are two enormous hills which most of the field walked up and a really nice touch was that every tree root and rock had been spray painted red for visibility. The course is very narrow in a couple of places though which could have been frustrating if you got stuck behind someone slower. Whilst there was almost no crowd support there were loads of supportive marshals and the course was really clearly marked out. The race was chip timed and times and photos were posted online shortly after. You got a nice well fitting tech tee with number pick up and the water, apple, flapjack and ice cream voucher at end making £12 race entry excellent value for money. Will definitely do this one again!

    The ABP Newport Wales Marathon is a national marathon for Wales, boasting a fast, scenic route arguably one of the UKs flattest marathons with over 70% of participants claiming a PB in 2019.

    The much-anticipated race has finally satisfied the demand for a premier marathon distance mass-participation event in Wales, made possible by the support of Associated British Ports, Newport City Council and the Welsh Government. Nearly 10,000 runners signed up to take on Marathon, 10K and Family Mile in 2019.x

    The flat, fast supporting 10K race, which attracts some of the UKs top athletes, gives runners of all abilities the opportunity to get involved in one of Wales biggest weekends of mass participation, without committing to the challenging 26.2-mile distance.

      i think the route would be much better in reverse the support is very quiet from mile 10 (Magor) to Mile 21(NISV). the supporters give you a natural boost and it would be much better if this was about mile 16 instead of mile 10 Magor was amazing.Quiet exspensive , a pity that the 10k Tshirt were better than the Marathon ones. yellow is good for night running
    • Did the event in 2018

      Pros- Great to have a flat, fast mass participation marathon in Wales- Fab t-shirt and medal- Easy registration (everything sent through the post in advance)- Good feed stations, regular and offering water/lucozade/gels- Lots of toilets along the route (although they did fill up and run out of toilet roll so were a bit grim at points)- Good environmental ethos, lots of recycling bins throughout the route encouraging runners to bin gel packets and bottles - Great support in certain parts of the route; loved the crowds and live band in Magor, and the crowds at the start/finishCons- Issues with park and ride (organisers well aware, pushed start back by 30mins and have said they will review) Consequence was it took 1hr40 to go 2 miles, we didn’t get to the race village until 9.10 (original start time 9am), in a rush and no signage directing us to start pen added to our pre-race panic!- The route, while flat, suffers from being so rural at times as it meant miles and miles of long country lanes with no supporters - it was tough on morale but then any marathon has its low points - Getting to Magor later on would boost morale as there was so much going on there but we arrived at 10 miles, boost would’ve been nice later on- Out and back to the transporter bridge was a bit soul destroying in the late stages, not sure what can be done there though

      As this was the inaugural Newport Marathon and being a proud welsh girl, it had to be done as my first ever marathon outing. Run4Wales always put on a good race (Cardiff Half being one of my favourites!) and they didn't disappoint on this first marathon either.Big bag drop in the car park, which eveyone got through quickly, LOADS of toilets (I wasn't queuing behind more than 3 people for a loo, bravo on this one!).The race did start 30 mins late, due to the park & ride but through no fault of Run4Wales, as the roadworks there are a nightmare.  Rookie error by me for not taking an old jacket to throw away, so was a bit cold.The route is flat (apart from the bridge at mile 1 & 25 but it's only a slight gradient, nothing serious and then there is one more gradient round the course), so it's certainly a fast route if you're going for a PB!Some of the roads are quiet as they are country roads, so not much support on the way (I was already aware of this as I had been helping out at the pre-marathon training session, so I had already run some of the course). If you don't mind not having the crowd support, then it's all good but the people who came out in Magor to cheer everyone on totally made up for it.  Plus lots of runners were chatting to each other, so the moreale around the course was good anyway.Plenty of water stations, aid stations and lots of recycling bins & boxes on the route to throw your empty bottles and gel packs into (yet I still saw some people thowing their empty gel packs to the floor :-(.....)Volunteers were rocking it round the course with loud hailers, big foam fingers & lots of cheers and at the finish with big hugs for us finishers.Surreal points..... Having horses in a field run alongside us, Cows runing up to the fences to see what was going on and the Banging DJ in his pimped up red tractor of decks and speakers, smashing out dance tunes.Only low point for me was the loop run up to the transporter bridge and back (around mile 22-24) longest few miles of my life! The finish line straight was amazing, so lovely to see so many people had come out to support and cheer.  You certainly feel amazing running up that last straight.  Chip timing was spot on, so my supporters knew exactly when I was coming into the finish.Nice medal, good tshirt, congrats to Steve Brace for a super route & to all at Run4Wales for putting on a great event.  I am so coming back next year!

      Loved Cardiff Tri - completed as my second Olympic distance. Registration day before was nice and easy, good set up of stalls to grab some clobber and we got socks, a cow bell, foam hand and energy bar on sign up. Race start was delayed due to buoys not being set up, but only 10mins or so. Swim goes off in waves at 5 mins intervals and are mixed genders (not what I’d seen before) but was fine. I had issues navigating the swim but I think that’s my poor sighting rather than the course. Transition was easy to navigate and the bike course was 3 13km laps, so ran slightly short at 39km. It was fast and flat, saw one nastyish crash the other side - but I think they caught the turn too quickly. Run was 2 laps over the barrage - very exposed and hot but I love the views of the Bay here. Ran short at around 9km which was quite frustrating as I was pacing for 10km but ah well, the massive crowds at the end and name check as I crossed the line was pretty epic. Nice medal too.
    • Did the event in 2018

      i was doing the Olympic distance.The event is centred around Cardiff Bay and in particular the Millennium Centre, outside of which is the large transition area. I picked up my race pack on Saturday afternoon, which was stress free and also had some free merch for the kids. Staying in an air B&B appt on Sat night meant the shortest walk to racking on Sunday morning ever. Racking was quite precise, with marshals being very on the ball (not a complaint, just an observation).  There were quite a few confused newbies, nervous enough already and it was a good job there were quite a few others, myself included to help them get organised, but actually this gave transition a relaxed feel overall. The swim start is a short walk, but far enough for the use of flip flops if you have supporters at the start or disposable towel slips from a hotel trip. The swim is in the calm of the bay and it is a lovely swim. There are not a lot of marker buoys so the field does spread out quickly. The bike course is closed roads, but the road surface is rough and there are a lot of turns. I completed on a TT bike, but might consider my road bike next time, as I think with the handling and acceleration out of the corners, I would be quicker. The run is a super flat out and back affair, with two laps. I loved the view running on the barrage and was really able to get the legs going. There are a couple of narrow pinch points on the run, so be polite and people will make way for a speedy runner. The run is exposed, so if the weather is not good be prepared, not an issue this year. The event was very well supported (this years weather might have helped) with the locals getting very involved.The organisers athlete tracking app is really good for your supporters and gave accurate splits on the day, in real time (quite a surprise given some out there).In summary a really good Olympic distance event, in a great location and well supported. Well done AAH Events and Cardiff for keeping it closed roads.
    • Did the event in 2018

      I signed up for this September 2017 and this will be my first Olympic. I’ve heard good things about.   Flat bike and flat run. Online registration was easy. Collection of packs the day before (and I think the morning of) and a walk through the mini expo was easy. Lots of freebies with the race pack (cow bell, sponge finger, gel). Race day, easy to get to and park. Tranistion was large and easy to set up. Race brief was ok, a little hard to hear and follow what they were saying about the swim as the buoys where not our yet. The race was delayed due to safety people where not set up. Wave one was in the water for awhile before they could start. Swim was calm. Trainsition was easy. The bike is flat, three laps (you need to count them). Some of the road is rough and nothing picturesque about the bike. Good for support as it’s lapped. A lot of drafting exspecially when the sprint competitors were on courses. Next trainsition was easy. Run was two laps. A water station farther down the course is needed. Spectators were in the way on the run. It needed to be tapped off and marshalled better here. Finish chute was good. Food and drink after finishing had a good selection. Medal was nice. If you want a tshirt you need to pre order  or buy one at the venue  No changing or showing facilities. Support was good. Lots of races after the Olympic so the crowd is still there. Being in the bay, lots of food and drink options post run. Car parks near. I will race this again. Value for money, my option as it’s closed roads. So it’s worth it.

    The route within the Forest has certainly got that key element of Tough and comprises some stunning views, including the historic Castell Coch.

      I've done a few trail races this year and each one has its own uniqueness to it, and this one was no exception. Cardiff Epic Trail certainly lived up to its name. With the glorious backdrop of Fforest Fawr as the setting for this race, runners were shaded by the trees as they wound their way along the route. This was a welcome relief from the oppressive. With lovely, long sections of winding downhill trails you were lulled into a false sense of security and it was easy to forget that as far as trail runs are concerned, what goes down must come back up again. And up we went. Up, up, up and up some more of the most brutal hills I've tackled on a trail run. We're talking stopping for breath, bent double, wondering whether you have the strength to go on. But with a name like Cardiff Epic Trail, no one ever said it was going to be easy. After all, flat is boring, right? Really impressive medal and a great welcome at the finish line where you were greeted with bottles of water, as many sweets as you could shove down, and a medal placed around your neck by the local Police Community Support Officers. All in all, a great experience. 10/10 would run again.

    The Blake Runner Ultra Marathon is a 50km race like no other. See what SAS Selection really takes as you run, climb, slide and scramble your way around the inner most depth of the Brecon Beacon Mountains. The fully marked route is not for the faint hearted. But those who succeed will be rewarded with such prestige as they cross the finish line at the infamous old red phone box, the very place former SAS men have stood tall themselves.

    • Did the event in 2018

      This is the second time I have taken part in the Great Bristol 10k, part of the Great Run series of events. In terms of crowd support and the volunteers this race cannot be faulted, there is support all the way around the course with (from memory) at least 4 bands playing as well. Logistically the race is easy to get to and easy to find where you need to be, I advise getting the Park & Ride in as it saves trying to find a parking space in the city with all the of the road closures. When you get over the finish line you’re directed to keep walking and are given your finishers bag in order with your clothing size. The sizing for the Tshirts was quite a bit larger this year, the small last year was perfect however this year was very baggy. If I had known I would have sized down but still a quality technical Tshirt. At £30 the race is expensive for a 10k however when you take into account the work that goes into putting on a race in a popular city centre it is actually good value. I would Race this again as was where I achieved my 10k PB last year but it does get crowded and there are a few pinch points on course. For the experience and atmosphere though it’s 10/10.

      Getting ThereThis is my local run, so getting there was a piece of cake for myself and my running buddy!The race starts at the University of the West of England's Glennside Campus, which has plenty of parking. The well-organised registration desk was in the student union, which was also open for snacks and coffee. I should also note, they were still accepting registration on the day.The starting line is a little way up the campus and we took our places amongst the 500 or so other runners, ready to set off. There was a quick race briefing and then we were off!The Race ItselfThe race is entirely off the road, but on tarmac pavements or well-maintained parkland throughout. It was described as "undulating" by the registration volunteers, but they definitely said it with their tongue in their cheek - there's some big ol' hills on this one.The first kilometer is a loop of the campus to get you warmed up before heading down the steep Blackberry Hill and onto the Snuff Mills section of the Frome Valley Walkway. The section is a nice riverside footpath, mostly on the flat, but is open to the public and has a few narrow bridges so there's a possibility of getting caught up in some human traffic.As you make your way towards the end of 3km, you hit the first uphill section, heading up to Oldbury Court park. Once you're in the park, you follow the edge around the grass field. There's little shelter here, which is a bit of a killer in the 28 degree heat we were racing in...Leaving the park, you work your way through a couple of housing estates, following the main road around to Downend. As you pass the 5k mark here, there's a water station, and quite a few people out in the gardens to cheer you on. At around 6km, you turn away from the main road and head back downhill again, crossing the river Frome before immediately heading back up a 300m stretch of steep uphill. Thankfully at this point, a kind gentleman was watering his flowers and used his hosepipe to provide us runners with a bit of a cooling shower!Rounding the corner at the top of the hill, you run through Frenchay, across the common and around, following the path back to the main road. The next couple of kilometers are mostly downhill and follow the pavement alongside the road, before a minor diversion to avoid crossing it. At kilometer 9, you start to head back up the steep Blackberry hill. Almost the entire final kilometer is up this beast and it will take everything you've got to keep your pace up. The pain makes crossing the finish line all the more exhillerating though and its a real rush!The Finish Line Back in UWE campus, you run past the union to the finish line, which was well attended with cheering members of the public. Just beyond this is the table where you can collect your congratulatory mug (yes you get a mug instead of a medal!), some water and snacks. Once you've got your breath back, the student's union is still open for a nice cooling pint too!Overall ImpressionsThis was a tough race, but worthwhile. The public were out in force, and gave a really nice feel - particularly the kind man who was cooling us down on the way up Frenchay's steep hill! The course was well laid out and the whole thing well organised. Definitely one to do again, even if my co-runner was disappointed with his mug not being an actual medal!

      Barry Island is probably most famous for the TV series Gavin & Stacey, well give it a while and that will be forgotten but the way they put on this event will soon take over and be the talk of the town.I registered earlier in the year for this event and booked a weekend hotel as this is a beautiful part of the country and my family and I have been there many times and love the place and when i said we were going back everyone was over the moon, even my mum wanted to join us too.I got plenty of emails regarding the event and parking for the day which helped me with my preperation and i knew exactly where i wanted to be at what times, with checking out of hotels etc.Then an interesting tweet and email was recieved to say that ex olympic runner Iwan Thomas was going to be entering the race and Healthspan, a race sponsor would donate £10 for everyone who finished ahead of him, i couldn't, i wouldn't not a chance, but out of interest what times he aiming for????A few tweets later and he said he was going for 46 minutes, 3 minutes quicker than my PB, should i, could i, no its too warm, i've done alot in July lets take it easy and just enjoy it.But getting to Barry Island on the Saturday i felt nervous and wasn't sure why, we went to the town and had a walk round to scope the place out and find out whats what, the family ate chips, i nicked a couple lolThe morning of the race and the alarm went off early, we checked out the hotel and drove to the car park which was busy but not full and got our space, runners everywhere, i stood by the car in my trainers, shorts and jacket zipped up, "why are you wearing a jacket" my wife asked "is boiling, are you crazy", i'm not 100% about running in vests and am a little body shy of my "girly arms" so kept it on until i was ready.We walked down to the seafront and there were hundreds of people, we sat on a bench, and the megaphone guy said what start times and what colour bibs needed to be where, it was very helpful.I went into the pen and we all shuffled forward, passing my jacket to my wife, i stood there and looked around thinking, its not so bad, i dont look out of place, no one here looks like what i'd picture a runner to be, everyone was different and thats why i like running.The horn sounded and the wheelchairs were off, then Iwan Thomas counted us down too, oh yes i forgot about him, nerves kick in some more now, 3...2...1....go and we're off, round the corner out of the town, seeing my family and high fiving my son, a long road and up a slight incline the course was good and it was hot, a few more hills than expected and a few tough parts where a 5 second breather was needed, but i kept going through the crowd and maintaining a steady pace, supports everywhere, locals were out and not a part of the course felt lonely, halfway through was a water station and was just at the right point too, up a big hill, round a corner and back onto the seafront, pushing myself, cheering on others around me, but 300 yards i needed to catch my breath again when someone said "keep going", i looked up and saw the finish and went for it, the support at the finish was amazing, cheering and shouting everywhere as i sprinted with energy i didnt realise i had, past 1, 2, 3 maybe 6 or 7 i dont know but it felt like i had turned into the FlashOver the finish line to collect my medal, t-shirt and much needed water, as i was met by my family, i turned the corner and started to walk away from the finish line to see Iwan Thomas coming towards me and his tent, i quickly asked for a selfie, it was great, shook his hand and he said well done.My wife told me he had finished before me but that he had started before me too, he had a time of 48:16 and i waited eagerly for my time to come through and still a day later am smiling as i finished in 48:05, 11 seconds ahead of him, the event had said anyone who beat Iwan would get a t-shirt saying #ibeatiwan on it too which i will await, but we then went off to the race village for food and to relax.I'd say this is one if not the best event i have done so far, great support, beautiful place to run and really well organised too, i would highly recommend this event, especially if you get the chance to beat an olympic athlete lol

      Barry Island provides a fantastic backdrop to a pretty unique road race. Starting off by the fun fair, the course winds around the town, up some hills of varying steepness, through a park, before turning back to head for home along the coastline. There was plenty of local support all along the route, and the marshals were exemplary in their race management and encouragement. The heat made things pretty challenging the day but it was a fantastic event all in all and one I'd be happy to do again. The lovely medal went down well too.

      I received my race number & information in the post in good time of race day, however, i had several friends who did not. They reassure me they signed up for the race in plenty of time, but when they didnt receive theirs in the post, were advised to collect their race number on race day. The queues on the day were so long, many runners were still queing for their bibs when the race had started. This did not affect me directly, but it did some of my running companions.
      The actual race itself was brilliant. It was well marshalled, lots of crowd support, plenty of water stations along the route (especially as it was a hit day), it was a flat course but was very busy in some areas. Despite this, i throughly enjoyed my experience & finished with a pb.
      I will still be entering this race next year. The organisers have reasured runners that they will endeavor to prevent a repeat of the pre-race shambles with the running bibs.
    • Did the event in 2018

      This is a very big & popular race, with, I believe, 7000 people taking part this year. Starting & finishing in Cardiff city centre, it's easy to get to, with plenty of parking & out transport options close by. Race numbers & info packs were sent out well in advance, so all you need to do is turn up & run!

      The course is very flat, so a definite PB potential if you don't get held up by crowds of runners. It's not the most exciting course, with a fair amount of it being through a park, but support & marshalling was excellent throughout. There was one aid station at about 5k, which was very well run, with a table providing water on both sides of the road to ease congestion.

      The one criticism I would have is that the finish area was quite disorganised. There was a fair crush after finishing as people made their way through the finish area, and this needs to be looked at as it did feel a bit dangerous at times. We got a goodie bag with the usual selection of stuff, a nice technical t shirt, and a decent medal.

      A good race which was generally well organised, but as said, they do need to make changes/improvements to the finish area.

    • Did the event in 2018

      Not a usual review as I won my entry so value for money and ease of registration don’t really apply. Massive thanks to Cardiff 10km for the opportunity to run and have an Itab engraving on my medal :)

      Start/facilities -
      Lots of toilets, didn’t use the bag drop as I had a husband with me but it looked ok although super busy.
      Start was delayed by 15 mins - announced over the tannoy. Wasn’t sure why but other runners told us there was a bit of chaos with picking up numbers, most were posted out, but there seemed to be a massive queue to collect on the day for some reason and the volunteers ended up just throwing numbers at people so there was a lot of bad feedback online. We had different coloured bibs but no idea if there were designated pens as this wasn’t clear and we all mixed in.

      There was a bottle neck at the start and I had to do a lot of weaving - always going to be an issue with such a massive race. There were around 7000 people I think.

      Course was flat, fast - I got a massive pb!! - and overall a decent route, some twists early on which were a bit annoying with so many people.

      Crossing the line took a long time as there were long queues for t-shirts and the medals, water was provided but we had to wait 10mins or so to get to it.

      Enjoyed my day, happy with my time and got a nice t shirt and medal. Not sure I’d want to run again without winning the entry as it’s an expensive one, that’s possibly got a bit too big.

      This is my first Aspire event. I had heard good things and signed up with a friend for my birthday weekend as we planned on making a day out.Pros: stunning scenery, parking on the beach, easy registration, toilets with minimal queues, an extra water station added in because of the weather, jelly babies, excellent selection of finish line treats, friendly marshals, clear waymarkers, medical back up and a great medal. Cons: confusing info about start times in emails and on website; website outlined a staggered start between cannicross, 5k and 10k which would have helped with the crowding up the hill at the start but their emails (which went into my junk folder) said everyone started at the same time. The email was the correct info so this meant I hadn't sorted my watch in time and missed off about 200m. No km markers on the course. Confusing maps at registration that included marshal points rather than km points.I really enjoyed the course on this race and I'd definitely recommend it to others, despite the hills!

      The course is downhill all the way. So it was a surprise to see a few people withdraw from the race within the first 2km. If you don't like running downhill then avoid this race. For a race that has been going a few years I was disappointed with the start.  About a thousand runners mustered at the start line and there was no proper PA system. I was in the middle of the pack and couldn't hear what the official at the front was saying.  The race started about 5 minutes late but it felt much longer as most of the runners did not know the reason for the delay. I thought the route was all closed roads.  This was not the case as at the half way point we were running with traffic till reaching Pontypool park.  Personally the race bored me. I don't hate running downhill, though it does get tedious for 10km.  Alot of people love this race mainly because it's a great chance to run a PB.  This is my nearest 10k event so I'm gutted I found the course so uninspiring.

      I entered this year's Mic Morris 10k as a warm up race for the Cardiff Half in a couple of weeks. The race blurb promised a "fast" 10k and it didn't disappoint. The race is a point to point affair starting in Blaenavon and ending in Pontypool.I registered online for both my wife and I and received our race packs about a month prior to the race. Due to the point to point nature of the event we paid (£5) for the bus transfer from the finish to the start after parking our car in the large ample car park provided for the event. The race had about a 1000 people racing and was organised brilliantly. The race was fast and downhill pretty much all the way. I would recommend this race to anyone.

You will then head towards the valleys where you will get to ride over one of the nations favourite ups The Bwlch. Youre then heading back to the coast where you will loop around to finish on the prom where you will be awarded your medal.

      I raced the Dragon Seeker 60 this weekend and thought it was a great event. I think it was the first year it has been run (it's run side-by-side with the London-Cardiff event) and is the perfect event for your 1st Ultra run.....flat, mixed terrain (mainly roads) & with easy naviagtion.I would certainly recommend this event!

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Cheddar Gorge Challenge has been taking places for the last 4 years across a series of summer dates. This year we are focusing on one date as we continue to expand our race series to new locations.

    We have a NEW start/finish location, with accessible parking just a short flat walk to registration and the start line. The routes will remain largely unchanged as we are able to jump onto the existing routes from our new base, though as we are effectively starting mid way round the old courses, you will see the route in a differnt and arguably less hilly light.

    NEW for 2017, the Cheddar Gorge Challenge in joining the National Trust's South West Outdoor Festival (SWOF). This is a celebration of everything outdoors with trail races, sportives, camping, live music, guest speakers, food foraging, axe throwing (not in the direction of the runners...the race is tough enough) and many others activities taking place across the long weekend of 8th - 10th September 2017.

      I love trying to seek out unique races and found this after reading an article in one of the running magazines. It was organised really well and coincided with a national trust atmosphere which added to the atmosphere. It was friendly and fun and i would definitely recommend - although the trail run was tough!
