Karen Galpin, Mark Willicott and Dave Elliott travelled to Llanelli for the inaugural 37 mile Born to Run ultra marathon. The route encompassed cycle trails 4 and 47 of the National Cycle Network, with views in the early and latter stages of the race across the Loughor Estuary to the Gower Peninsula. Setting off from the Gateway Caravan park HQ, Karen and Mark ran together at a steady pace and caught up with Dave Elliott at 22 miles after completing a long and tiring 7 mile incline. The three split up after the 26 mile feed station at which point Karen continued ahead to negotiate the downhill section and make her way to the finish back along the estuary. Karen was the first lady to cross the finish line in 5 hours 32 minutes and in 5th place overall. Dave Elliott managed to maintain a steady pace over the last 11 miles and finished in 7th position in 5 hours 39 minutes. Mark found the last 7 miles tough but was determined to gain a respectable finish and came 10th overall in 5 hours 54 minutes.
