Local couples Salome and Gethin Evans, Simon and Suzanne Rose took part in this years' Canalathon as aka "Talgarth Trotters"! to compete in this year's Canalathon 2017. They managed the event in an approx time of 5hrs - 7mins! A great achievement.
Teams of four are challenged to complete the 35-mile route along beautiful Monmouthshire, Brecon Abergavenny Canal by canoe, bike and on foot. 35 teams entered this year with competitors coming from far and wide. Despite awful conditions early on the competitors ended the event in the sunshine at the Canal Basin by the Theatre Brycheiniog. After receiving medals they enjoyed a sit-down and some hearty food, whilst listening to music from Brecon Music Live. Many know Salome from the Delipot in Town! Well done both and to the team. A great event raising awareness of the Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust.
