Bus Transport for the Ultra Bach and Trail Race Runners.

Bus transport from the finish to the start is avaliable for the Ultra Bach and Trail 22 runners. The Busses will collect from the mumbles Cricket Club at 0815- Ultra Bach and 0915 for the Trail 22 Runners. You are welcome to be dropped off at the race starts, but please note there is no parking avaliable at the Ultra Bach start and the lane is very narrow so we therefor would recommend where possible to be dropped off at the top of the lane and walk down. Spectators to the start for the Ultra Bach should park in Llhanmadoc and they can walk down onto the Wales Coast Path to get a good view of the runners over the first couple of miles. More information on this will be provided at the event notes.

Spectators and parking for the Trail Race is ample in the Rhossili Pay and Display Car park, so spectators are very welcome.

If you want to catch the bus you need to select this option when you sign up.
