Gavin and some friends had planned to run the Darkside Sunrise Ultra marathon, 45 miles, at night, along the coast in December. Due to unforseen circumstances, this was cancelled. The replacement challenge was the Brecon to Cardiff ultra on 20th of February. Starting at Brecon Beacons NP, it follows the Taff trail 43.5 miles south to Cardiff.

Gavin said:

"My Dad has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, obviously having a tough time of it at the moment, and the kind people at the James Paget hospital are helping him and many others in a similar position. Thank you and we salute you!"

Gavin and his friends completed the run in 9 hours 39 mins in conditions of torrential rain and howling winds!
