At our checkpoints you will find water, squash, coke, electrolytes, sweets, crisps, nuts, chocolate, bananas, cake, new potatoes and other carby bits on the marathon and ultra checkpoints . We are trying to reduce the use of plastic so we ask runners to bring reusable cups for coke and squash. There will not be any checkpoints during runs on our training weekends.

Checkpoint information coming soon.

For those of you asking for events on a Sunday, this one is for you!

Set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this is one of our most popular events.

This is one of our new back to back challenges for 2021!

You can now complete the run on the Saturday and then try it again in the reverse direction on the Sunday! Who is up for trying the back to back challenges in 2021?

If you enter both days there is a 10% discount – regardless of which distance you are doing, even if it is different distances for each day.

The Ultra and Marathon distance will take on the full might of the mountains of the Beacons, summiting Pen y Fan and the surrounding peaks.

The Half and 10k will stay a bit lower and cover the trails around Talybont reservoir and the woodlands at the bottom of the mountain trails.
