OVER 500 runners took part in the Beach Warriors 5-mile challenge on Sunday (May 13) on the sands of Cefn Sidan beach.

With the sun shining and blue skies children and adults of all ages enjoyed taking part in the races.

Participants had a number of obstacles to overcome during the 5-mile run, these included hurdles, barriers and a boxing ring.

Each runner was timed using an electronic chip timing system to record their score. A number of people ran to raise money for charity.

Radio Carmarthenshire were present playing music and making announcements throughout the day. There was also a bar and drink stalls providing refreshments for the large crowd.

Organiser of the event was World Champion Boxing trainer and personal trainer Darren Wilson.

Speaking to Llanelli Online during the event he said: “It has been a fantastic day with a great turnout. We have had the weather and everyone has enjoyed which is really good.

“People from all over Wales have come down to Cefn Sidan to take part in the challenge today. Some have been given extra training to prepare themselves for running on the sand.

“Participants can go at their own pace. It is an effort in itself to just walk it but everyone has the goal of finishing it.”
