Report & Results of the 2012 Rhondda Rollercoaster Event

The 2012 Rhondda Rollercoaster was an overwhelming success. 166 people pre-entered the event and a further 28 entered on the day thus ensuring that there was a fantastic atmosphere throughout the day. The weather certainly played its part, and despite the monsoon conditions that had plagued Wales for most of late April and early May, on the day of the event itself we were blessed with wall to wall sunshine. Entrants commented on the wonderful far reaching views, and it was pleasing to hear LDWA stalwarts extol the virtues of the South Wales valleys, particularly as many had never visited this part of the country before.

Finally, a big thank you to all of the helpers who ensured that the Rhondda Rollercoaster went so very well. The marshals can be justifiably proud of what they achieved. It was clear to see that the entrants loved the event, and the Rhondda Rollercoaster could not operate without the time of the many volunteers.
