The Man versus Horse Marathon began in June 1980 when the landlord of the Neuadd Arms Hotel set the challenge to test the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain. The internationally acclaimed annual event is run over a distance of approximately 22 miles (35km) and results in very close finishes, sometimes with the horse winning by only a few seconds. It took 25 years before a man finally beat a horse, Huw Lobb won in 2hrs and 5mins beating the fastest horse by 2 minutes. A jackpot is awarded to the runner who beats the first horse and rider.
