Did the race in 2019
Overall my experience of the event was great. It was well organised, friendly Marshalls and a well laid out route. The route itself was very challenging with mixed terrain, beautiful views and plenty of ups and downs (both physical and emotional haha) The only reason I marked it down is that some parts of the course have a very narrow space to run on, the weather had been so bad leading up to the event that you could not confidently run due to no confidence in the mud holding you....and when running along a cliff edge it makes for nervous times

not sure what to expect and the weather will always add unpredictability but this will live long in the memory. Picturesque start and finish with great photos in front of 'the worm'. Good start/finish line commentary that made everyone feel involved and plenty of marshals and photographers to give big event feel. The course apart from the first mile and last mile is a great challenge. Trail shoes a must and a nice steady drag before hitting the main feature of the day .. a climb of pretty intense proportions. Need to factor that in to the plan so you get up and have enough energy at the top to get the running rhythm going again. The run along the top was in mud, ice, snow, sleet and you really did feel out in the wilds, although the friendly 'worm' was always in view. The friendly marshalls also re-assuring presence and plenty of them. I think road running is probably more my thing and was a little tentative on the downhill for fear of wrecking my marathon season before it had started, but can't fault this as a different kind of event, great experience and in a fantastic part of the world.

A tough multi terrain race set in probably the most beautiful surroundings Ive run in to date. Very well organised event, the marshals & volunteers were amazing. Standing around for hours in the cold some on top of a snow covered hill goes above & beyond. Trail shoes definitely needed to be worn as there were areas of the course which were very muddy & slippery. Some participants I chatted with mentioned that they werent advised on the website to were trail shoes but this is definitely not the case. There were a selection of sweet & savoury snacks after the race & a good quality medal as a souvenir. I have already entered for next year, cant wait

Has the potential to be 5*. Run in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The course was a challenge and because of weather was dangerous in parts(although there werelots of Marshall to warn). Not a huge crowd, but friendly. Double run through through the village was good as families got to see parents a nunver of times.Because of the rural location I think it lends it's self to being a half marathon race, via extention of course. Free parkkng was good, but a few more things for spectators would have been a bonus.

Race was great, but 20 for a race with nor prize money???? 20 x 500 = 10, 000. Virtually no running costs. Supossed to be a non profit organisation - seems unlikely.

Great location with fantastic scenery. With the recent weather course was abit to slippery underfoot for my liking even with trail shoes on. Even on the best of days I think the mandatory footwear should be trail shoes. Il deffo be back to give it another go.

Amazing event! Worm's Head, Rhossili Bay and Rhossili Down provide the most stunning coastal setting for a 10k you could wish for! It's a full trail course, and on the day was very muddy in parts and also very icy and snowy in parts too (though this is unusual for the location!). The event was incredibly well organised. Excellent marshalls. Great atmosphere. No queues for toilets. (Yes, NO queues!). Stunning medal at the finish with well deserved goodies.
