Set at Newcourt Farm in Felindre, Wales, we are in the perfect place for trail running and these challenges are along some of the best trails this region has to offer.
Our routes are also slightly different this year with some miles added to the Ultra challenge. We also have distances from 14k – 30k for you to choose from.
This is going to be one of our hardest and most scenic trail running challenge in South Wales, depending on your distance you will be running high in the Black Mountains with breath taking views all around.
If you are going to run a trail race this year then the Black Mountains Trail Running Challenge has to be the event to choose.
Canicross Friendly (14k and Half Marathon ONLY).
