Man Versus Horse Marathon is a very appealing sport for the runners in the Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells that takes place in the month of June every year. Technically, it is not a Marathon but a race over 22 miles straightaway defies runners undying spirit of running against the riders on horseback. It is indeed a very striking game for everyone. In 2011, more than 300 runners will be participating in the marathon and testing their lungs, legs and stamina against that of 20 horses.
Every year it emerges with some unique and different approach that makes it truly a worth-beholding game for onlookers. It really requires a genuine horsepower in runners to beat a horse at his own game. Rather many a runner has given extra-effort in putting best foot forward in the past but regretfully only one man has taken a horse head on and come out as a winner.
So, if you want to try something amazing of this kind then come and hit the hilly terrains, containing bridle paths, forestry roads, farm tracks, and open moorland of Wales.
