Oh, beautiful Wales. This country offers some of the UK’s most beautiful trails, beaches and landscapes. Rhys Jenkins of Pegasus Running Club knows this, having grown up among the likes of the Welsh mountains.
The Wildhorse 200 features three 200-mile races that cover the width of Wales. Over the Easter weekend, 47 eager participants lined up to attempt the latest edition of the South Wales 200.
“It’s not a horserace.” Rhys laughed. “We get many questions about that, so maybe I should have reconsidered the name.
“It’s a 200-mile footrace across the valleys and mountains of South Wales. It starts in Chepstow and finishes at Worms Head in the West. Worms Head is magnificent; somewhere, I’ve grown up myself, and it’s nice to introduce people to that.
“It’s one of the prettiest finish lines I’ve ever encountered. It’s pretty unique.”
