Boston Triathlons Steve Bourne travelled to the land of his forefathers on Saturday 09th to take part in the 4th Edition of the Hoka Winter Trail Half Marathon. The 13.1mile trail run takes part in the Pontrhydyfen, South Wales.
This challenging trail route is set in the spectacular Afan Forest. The course is not for the faint hearted athlete offering over 700m of elevation with expansive views right around the beautiful valley location.
