Hi John - We checked that part of the route after your feedback and concluded that there was no need to alter the description radically. The beauty of that part of the route is that the next instruction is to reach a LMG and ST. You won't reach that by going the other way, and so we concluded we didn't need to do anything about it. Thanks for taking the time to add assistance to those who might be confused.

The 2013 Rhondda Rollercoaster is halfway to its cut off limit. If you are thinking of entering, can I gently suggest that you may wish to do it sooner rather than later.

Online entry available at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?event_id=817

Regards,

David

The 2013 Rhondda Rollercoaster is to be held on the 11th May 2013. Entries for the event are now open, but please note that we are limited to 200 entrants, and last year we nearly hit that limit.

Details of the event, including photographs of the route and a video made by John Pennifold can be found at:

http://www.southwalesldwa.org/rrc/rrc.html

The video can be found under the 2012 results tab.

You can enter via post if that is your want, but we would prefer that you entered via our online sportident entry page as it maks it very easy for us, the organisers. This can be found at:

https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?event_id=817

The updated route description will be ready for download about a month before the event together with gpx tracks of the route for GPS users. We will email all entrants when those documents are ready to use.

We very much look forward to hearing from you, and in turn experiencing yet another wonderful day in the South Wales Valleys.

Despite the entries selling well, due to the fact that we have negotiated additional car parking space, we can guarantee that entries on the day WILL be accepted.

So, if the weather is good, you know that the Rhondda is the place to be!!!

There are only 50 places left for this popular event, and they are selling out quickly. If you want to guarantee yourself a place on this wonderful event, please book ASAP. We will accept SEF's as well as the online route that can be found at

We're about halfway now to our maximum limit. Entries have been strong for this year but there are still plenty of spaces left, so if you want a good work out prior to the Hundred, or you just want a fabulous walk in an area that is not well known, then this is the walk for you!!!

Entries are well under way now for the 2nd Rhondda Rollercoaster. This event had a great write up in Strider last year, and is justifiably a popular event due to the wonderful route that Gwyn Matthews has designed.
Entries can be made on line or via SEF and the details can be found by following this link.
