Picture the scene… clear sky, warm weather and the sun beating down as you glide your way along the Wales Coast Path. Remember, this is Wales and anything goes when it comes to the summer weather.
This Challenge is perfect for anyone looking to push themselves, all whilst having a good time with other members of the community. The route will be clearly marked with checkpoints and aid stations to keep all on course and get you to the finish line safely.
The Vale Coast Path
This invigorating route takes in golden beaches, dramatic cliffs, Ogmore Castle and the infamous stepping stones. 40 miles of this amazing path runs through the Glamorgan Heritage Coast from Porthcawl in the West to Penarth in the East.
Point of Interest
Ogmore Castle was one of a number of fortifications built in the late eleventh/early twelfth century to secure the Vale of Glamorgan which had been seized by Robert Fitzhamon and his retainers. After you cross the infamous stepping stones, take a look to your left.
