Route information
All courses have extensive climbs and descents throughout, with each route climbing up the range's highest peak - Waun Fach. Following the climb participants will descend toward the Grwynw Fawr reservoir and into the green Welsh Valleys which lie below.
The mountain range has been a-likened to something that would appear in the literature of Tolkien and this is a course which will truly confirm your love of the outdoors.
Team Entry: Teams will consist of 4 members, with each member being assigned a specific race. In the end, the team with the quickest cumulative time across the 4 different routes will win. Runners kick off together, before darting off depending on which route you are running.

Maverick Race
Maverick Race is undoubtedly one of the best trail running organisers in the UK. The company was started down on the Jurassic Coast back in 2013 by Ben and Justin. Since then they’ve delivered events which are guaranteed to take you to some of the most scenic locations in the UK. However, what really separates Maverick is their strive for inclusivity in the outdoors. From 6km entry level runs to 50km ultra marathons, there really is something for everyone. Afterwards you’ll find everyone hanging around, enjoying some fresh pizza, and speaking to like minded people with a shared passion for trail running.
