All competitors will be given a food voucher and 2 tokens for drinks behind the bar. If you are no longer competing but have paid you will need to collect your t-shirt and vouchers at registration.  The awards ceremony will take place about 2 hours after the final runner crosses the line. The event takes place on the final day of the six nations, and all participants and family are invited to stay to watch the games.

The venue: South Gower Rugby Club, Pwll Du Lane, Bishopston, Gower, Swansea. SA3 3AJ.  (See map below)

Showering: Showering facilities are available, but only for about half of the runners. If you have local options we recommend you make use of these.  Showers can get quite congested and hot water has been known to run low.  

Bring cash: The venue does not have a card machine so you will need to bring cash for spending at the bar. We will be running an auction to raise money for Wales Air Ambulance with some great prizes, so please come prepared with plenty of cash!

Parking: Parking is very limited so if you can, please lift-share or if you are local, please walk.  If you have to drive, there are two official options.  Option 1: There will be a limited number of spaces at the rugby club – you’ll need to arrive early to get one.  Option 2:  Parking is available at Bishopston Primary school, a 10 minute walk to the rugby club (we may be putting a shuttle bus on)

Property: We will have a system in place for personal belongings during the race, so you are welcome to leave them at the club.
