Just home now from 8 days on the marshalls team, my 4th time. Great event and the weather held good again, possible downside being that our foreign visitors from 31 nations may leave with the impression it never rains in Wales!

Emotional prize giving last night with plenty of smiles and tears on the final day, although it is a racing event everyone is so pleasant and kind with not an ego in sight.

Hard work marshalling, but now bathed and shaved it is a great feeling to have been part of making so many dreams come to fruition - like the Malaysian runners who have been planning the trip for 4 years - and to show off Wales at its best.

Well done all, finishers and those who tried, there is always another time.
