Tough Runner events are truly amazing experiences, I ran in the Garwnant Epic 10k and enjoyed it so much I also entered the Cardiff Epic 10k. They were both incredible events, seamlessly organised and a great atmosphere. Friendly and supportive volunteers, always water stations and electronic chip timing. I am super excited for the Barry 10k next month and I am gutted I can’t make any other events!! If you’re wondering about entering a Tough Runner race, don’t have any concerns, they are fantastic.

Did my first Tough Runner UK event at Garwnant yesterday and was really impressed. Well organised, good route, plenty of Marshall’s and water stations well stocked. Would definitely do one of their events again in the future.
