Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival. Treforest 10k - Sunday 28th May 2017. Race for Life - Sunday 4th June 2017. Man v Horse - Saturday 10th June 2017. Whole Earth Man v Horse A Wonder-fuel Challenge The event began in June 1980 following a chat over a pint (or three) in the back bar of the Neuadd Arms Hotel.

Man v Horse - Saturday 10th June 2017

The then Landlord, Gordon Green, overheard two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain. The enterprising Gordon, never one to miss an opportunity to promote Llanwrtyd Wells and improve business at his hotel, decided to put it to the test. And so began Green Events and its first, longest standing and now internationally acclaimed event, Man v Horse. The course was changed in 1982 to provide a more even match between the man and the horse, resulting year on year in very close finishes - sometimes with the horse winning by only a few seconds. 2014 saw the introduction of electronic timing, with each competitor wearing a tag which automatically recorded their times.

The run takes in the notorious Big Dipper sand dune (as used by athletes to train for the Marathon De Sables), and runs along side Ogmore River, past the stepping stones near the castle, and if your feet haven’t got wet by then, you ford the river before finishing in front of the wonderful vista that is Merthyr Mawr House. …………more details Cost to enter: from £15.
