The clue is in the name Tough Runner I suppose…last Saturday’s Swansea Trail Half Marathon, starting and ending in Oxwich Bay, was just about the hardest run I’ve ever completed (and I ran the London Marathon 3 weeks previously). The mud, the rain showers, the hills - it had everything a tough trail run should have. I’ve never felt so exhausted (or exhilarated) at the end of a race. Most of all though I think the organisers and marshalls need extra special commendation. This event could have been a disaster due to the sheer amount of rainfall in the preceding few days and I anticipated a long queue in and out of the car park, but no. It was well organised, appropriate safety advice was given, there were wonderful marshalls at every checkpoint who were so kind and encouraging, and a really great atmosphere. I would recommend these events to any runner wanting a challenge (without obstacles - yay!) Thank you everyone at Tough Runner. I am sure we will meet again soon.

The Swansea Trail Half Marathon was awesome! It was very well marshalled and signed throughout, and a beast of a route with a mix of everything! The torrential rain the days before added to the challenge! Definitely the most challenging run I have ever done, but a great sense of achievement to get to the finish line! Thank you.
