Man Vs Horse Race

This is the amazing Man versus Horse race – where humans pit themselves against horses in gruelling 22 mile race over open moorland, hillsides, forestry and river crossings. Held in the mid Wales town of Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, on Saturday June 11, it has become a world renowned alternative sporting event. The competition was born after the then landlord of the local pub, Gordon Green, decided to come up with a way of promoting Llanwrtyd Wells – and boost his pubs ailing trade.
