Thanks to all for the wonderful feedback, both on the forum here and by the large number of emails sent to us. The WRD is likely to be back in 2014, but there's a small event to sort out in May first ;-)

Stunning in a word . One of the very best routes & events on the calendar . Perfect weather , distant views across the valleys to the Brecon Beacons , umpteen other hilltops & the Severn ; remote lofty hill walking with plenty of ascent & descent in splendid isolation on good paths & superb South Wales hospitality . Almost 27 miles with 5800 ft ascent .

Gourmet sandwiches in Cwmcarn : smoked salmon & cream cheese , corned beef & onion relish amongst many others . At the finish delicious Welsh broth then a range of cakes to even rival the Harden Hard’un : raspberry , lemon & yogurt , chocolate , lemon drizzle , coffee & walnut to name a few !

A taster near the start / finish into a small part ( in reverse ) of the Valleys 100 route , which if WRD & it’s sister event the Rhondda Rollercoaster are anything to go by will be a superb visual delight . Thanks to all at South Wales group for two excellent events this year .

I fully concur with what Richard says here - a fantastic day.
Trevor - if the Valleys 100 is anything like yesterdays Where Ravens Dare then It'll be a superb weekend. The whole day; scenery, hospitality, checkpoints were wonderful and the food was lush!
Thanks to all South Wales group who organized, manned check points and made the lovely food.

I've already got an entry on Where Ravens Dare:
1. Because I hope to take part in the Valleys 100
2. I've been told that it's an awesome event
3. South Wales group have had some fantastic hospitality/food at their checkpoint on the last 3 100's I've done
Really looking forward to it!

If anyone is thinking of entering next year’s Valleys Hundred then why not come along to the Where Ravens Dare Challenge Walk on 5th October. It will give you a feel for the South Wales Valleys.
