Introducing the Afan Forest Tough Runner Trail Marathon, part of the first ever Tough Runner Trail Festival. Set to be an outstanding 26.2 mile course, this race will take you on a journey both mentally and physically through the beautiful surroundings of the epic Afan Forest Country Park. Over the last few months, the team at Tough Runner UK have been working closely with Natural Resources Wales to develop a course that is challenging & extremely awesome!

EVENT DETAILS:
This event will take place on Saturday 27th July 2019, 10:30 AM Start.

The Trail Festival will host 3 awesome races in one day so if you don’t think you have what it takes to enter the marathon you can challenge yourself to the Half Marathon or 10k in stead:
-Tough Runner Trail Marathon
-Tough Runner Trail Half Marathon
-Tough Runner Trail 10k

This day will be more than just a race. There will be entertainment, expo tents, food, drinks and even cash prizes for the overall Marathon winners!

The race will be capped at 600 runners.

This event is open to experienced runners and newcomers.

I’ve just completed my first Tough Runner UK event, the Swansea Epic Trail 10k. It was a tough but awesome event with a great atmosphere. The team clearly put a huge amount of effort into organising these events. Brilliant Marshall’s and a great medal and finishers t- shirt too.

Completed the Cardiff epic 10k trail on Sunday and loved it! The trail was clearly marked out, organisation was fab and the pre race instructions were clear and informative. The marshalls were really excellent and made sure the event went smoothly. Toughest race ive ever done but also the most fun! I’ve already signed up for the penllegaer one!

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.
