Brecon to Cardiff Ultra Marathon

The Brecon to Cardiff Ultra on Sunday 10th February was a 70k one way race that started in the Brecon Beacons National Park with its dramatic mountain landscapes. Racers then joined the Taff Trail which made much use of an abandoned branch of the Taff Vale Railway and the Glamorganshire Canal.  From Brecon the route headed east following the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal to Talybont-on-usk. There the route climbed for quite a long way to Torpantu, from this point it was downhill all the way to the finish Nantgarw.

Representing RSE was Gareth Roberts and Rochelle Ravenscroft. Timings to follow.

Calne Smasher 10k

On Sunday 10th February the Calne Smasher 10k took place. This was an out and back flat multi-terrain event along the picturesque national network from Calne to Stanley near Chippenham.
