Ron Skilton Memorial Half Marathon
Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales, United Kingdom

Following the sad death of our Treasurer and good friend, Ron Skilton, to Motor Neurone Disease in December 2005, this event was added to our Green Events calendar. In his younger years Ron was a keen runner and cyclist so we felt that a half marathon would be a fitting tribute and a way to remember him and celebrate his life.

The route for the half marathon is a figure of 8, mainly off-road and approx 13 miles long. The scenery is magnificent and the course challenging as the area is mountainous. Feedback from previous years is that it is great fun, well marked and marshalled, and people are keen to come back and do it again!
