The second running of this 10K off road race in the Begwyns near Hay on Wye was again run in monsoon conditions. It was warmer than last year but the wind was stronger, so it was a real test. 89 runners took part, some of whom had camped overnight at the Hay literary festival. Saturday morning training sessions in the Radnor Hills certainly paid dividends for me as I finished 6th. It is an excellent race – it just needs a bit of sunshine. Maybe next year?
