Route description
Route description

This sell-out event takes place in the Wye Valley, and involves a hefty climb to 850 feet where runners can appreciate the stunning scenery from the Round House. But, as with every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction - so after summiting Kymin the remainder of the race takes you on a gentle descent through the fields of Wye.

If you have the lungs (and the quads) then you could be crowned King/Queen of the Hill by beating the competition to the top.

Male Record: 39m 50s, set by Huw Evans (2015)

Female Record: 44m 32s, set by Emma Wookey (2015)

There will be water stations throughout the course and mile markers to keep you on track.
