This is no ordinary marathon. It's a tough, beautiful, off-road event, through forests, over streams, past waterfalls and up mountains, with the added task of running into the night. With a start time of 5.30pm, the aim is to finish before midnight. And with Pen-Y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales, and a few others in the way, that maybe not as easy as it sounds.

    Loved it! It was very well organised and course marked and the volunteers were fantastic as always. The RD gave out the medals when finishing which is always a lovely touch.
