A muddy 5 and 10 mile winter cross country challenge through

the stunning fields and woodlands on the outskirts of Cardiff.

This event will most definitely be challenging but great fun. Look

out for the Bog of Doom, river crossings and some leg burning climbs

and prepared to get muddy, very muddy.

Fancy dress optional.

Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event.

You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.

Signage

We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken.

We also use striped tape, these are placed after any split to reassure you that you are on the correct trail. We also use them along long stretches where no turn off is required or directional arrows needed.

We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.
