Man V Horse - 2020

Who will come out on top this year?


The event began in June 1980 following a chat over a pint (or three) in the back bar of the Neuadd Arms Hotel. The then Landlord, Gordon Green, overheard two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain. The enterprising Gordon, never one to miss an opportunity to promote Llanwrtyd Wells and improve business at his hotel, decided to put it to the test. And so began Green Events and its first, longest standing and now internationally acclaimed event, Man v Horse.

Last year GoodGym certainly made their mark with over 40 runners, why not join us this year as we take the challenge again and try to beat at least one horse!

It's 22 miles of challenging terrain, but beautiful Welsh views. There are options for relay teams of three, as well as individual runners. Or you could always come with your horse!
