'I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you very much for organising such a great event. Having never run more than a marathon distance in a race I was a little apprehensive but everybody was fantastic, from all of the marshals and other helpers through to the competitors. I was chuffed with my time (although a couple of seconds under 10 hours would have been even sweeter!).'

'Once again thank you and very best wishes,Ps, next year I’ll book some accommodation even though I live in Monmouth so I can have a beer or two after.'

'It was another great race put on by you guys. Thanks again.'

'You guys put on a phenomenal event and I was really lucky to be able to take part! I'm from the US and had never been to the Brecon Beacons area before and it sure was beautiful. I'll definitely plan on next year.'
