    Just got home from the Brecon run and want to echo what the guys have already said.

    What a brilliant run out with a great gang of people. The south Wales countryside is absolutely stunning, I didn't want the run to end, and what a run it was. It was over 120 miles before we all split to go home.

    It was really well organised with plenty of breaks and the route through the hills was awesome:cool:
