Tough hilly course with amazing views, muddy & slippery in parts so trail shoes needed. Very well organised event with great support from the marshals. Plenty of feed stations with water & jelly babies. Atmosphere at the end not the best I’ve experienced but a great medal made up for it. Would definitely recommend this race if you’re after a challenge 😀 .… read more

This was a beautiful race that was so well organised and marshalled. The only thing that would be nice is maybe something like Jaffa cakes or similar at the midpoint aid station! … read more

Route description
Route description

The route follows the road out of Hay, crosses open fields and tracks, climbs Betwys Dingle, then follows country lanes, climbing steadily, before a steep climb to the top of Dysgwilfa Hill, with panoramic views and an easy run down to Gladestry. The ultimate climb to the top of Hergest Ridge is amazing, and once at the top it's a glorious 4 mile run before dropping down quickly to the finish in Kington. Total climb 2,500ft over 14.5 miles.
