I tend to run / walk events depending on the terrain and whether I can be bothered running.....I have had a few comments...'its meant to be a walk' etc but generally I've not had an issue although I tend to slow down after 20mls or so and then the fast walkers have the satisfaction of catching me up and looking smug!

Tends to depend on the checkpoint opening times, if one is manned and opens at 11am and you go belting through at 10.45, you may cause problems for a while by being 'unrecorded'.
I've been running them for years without any probs, but always check with organisers at the start and let them know what you are doing etc. It's essential that everyone is accounted for on the route.

Hi - as a new member I'm interested to find out your views about running at your events. I recently ran the Rhondda Rollercoaster (which was brilliant btw) but was wondering if running is permitted at all events or just certain ones.
How will I know whether running is acceptable or not?

Thanks in advance for any comments.
