Hillbilly Makes Comeback
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so you are all going to love this scenic mid-Wales 10K...
The Hillbilly 10K is back for 2023 after a four year hiatus. New and improved, the mid-Wales race will make its return to the race calendar on 2 September, and the good news is that there are still places available.
The event was known as the Hillbilly 6 (although a 10K distance) and so course records still stand for this year. Do you have what it takes to beat Wyndham Turner's 36:49 or Donna Morris' 41:24 times?
Organised by Builth & District Running Club, the 10K route starts and finishes near the Hundred House Inn, Llandrindod Wells and the scenic, gently undulating course will take runners on a loop of quiet country lanes.
Organisers comment: "Our new and improved Hill Billy Road Race has been a long time coming... we can't wait to see runners back on the course and enjoying the new elements of the event.
"This year we are excited to provide an Event Village. We plan to have local businesses which will either be beneficial to runners, local to Hundred House or companies which provide products which runners love. You can expect; Cardiff Gait, Balmy Fox, The Egg Transporter, Sole Mate – Merthyr Tydfil, Black Mountains Botanicals, Limitless Trails, KDM Gaming Hub Sweetshop, American soda’s and Trading Cards (TCG) and A Cake Shop too."
Not only that, with the race starting and finishing at the Hundred House Inn there will be car parking, toilets and of course you can reward yourself with some tasty pub grub and a drink post run!
