ALREADY OPEN FOR ENTRIES

This race starts at Brecon, and you will be running across the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.  This is a very challenging area to run in, with a lot of ascent and descent.  If the weather is hot, there will inevitably be a very high attrition rate.  In 2019, on the other hand, the weather was so rough that the 100-mile race had to be abandoned.

If you enter the 100-mile race your Runfurther points will be calculated based on the fastest runner of your sex in the 100-mile race, and the same for the 50-mile race.  It’s up to you which you enter.
