100mi
Distance

80% of the 100mile route follows the Wales Coastal Path and passes through some stunning scenery including the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Kenfig Sands Nature Reserve, and the Glamorgan Heritage Coast.
The remaining 20% of the 100 mile route leaves the Coast path and takes you inland through a 'magical' network of trails through the Afan Forest.
The Dragon 50 route starts with a 3 miles loop of trail before joining onto the Wales Coast Path at Kenfig sands and following it to Cardiff.
Both routes finish at the lively Cardiff Bay after a run over the Cardiff Bay Barrage.
The Dragon 100 route has approximately 3000 meters of ascent, and the Dragon 50 has approximately 1300 meters of ascent, so are perfect for a first attempt at either distance or a fast time.
