Race directors Adam & Graham are passionate about individuals fulfilling their dreams and developing their potential. They both, personally see all runners off at the start and move around the course offering encouragement and advice. There are no human barriers to entering or completing the Great Celtic Trail Marathon.
We also utilise as many local suppliers and contractors as possible and aim to ensure that the local economy and South-Wales community is affected in a positive manner by the event. We want the Great Celtic Trail Marathon (GCTM)to be an event that the local and national Welsh community can be proud of. We work closely with local youth projects and the local community such as Scouts at YMCA, Port Talbot and also Western Beacon Mountain Rescue. We also support local charities where possible with donations.
