Well done to Tara Betts and Chris Palmer who both took part in events at the Weekend

Spartan Weekend

Tara Betts took part in a number of events at the Brecon Beacons over the Weekend, very well done it sounds very tough.

Report by Tara:-

This weekend I chose to leave the road running behind and test my limits on the trails of the Welsh hills!  Taking on Spartan obstacle racing and technical trail running.  Obstacles range from heavy carries, grip strength, climbs and water obstacles.

Saturday was the Beast - 13.1 miles and 30 obstacles and some were near vertical climbs and descents on technical hill trails with terrain ranging from dense woodland to loose shale.

Sunday started with a 10k trail run which showed some beautiful scenery of Wales.  The straight into a Super (10k) with 25 obstacles... and the Sprint (5k) with 20 obstacles.

This weekend has certainly tested me physically and would certainly recommend to anyone who wants a true physical challenge!
