Route information
50 mile course
Elevation Gain – 3488Ft
  • The course will start and finish from the Bishops Palace. A 13th Century grade one listed building that sits next to the impressive Cathedral. This really is an iconic site for an iconic event.
  • Riders will pass through the magnificent palace gates and along the Cathedral Close.
  • They will then head up Quickwell Hill and then head North on the A487.
  • The first 18 miles features gentle ascents and descents will the only ascent of note at Hayscastle Cross.
  • Once riders have completed this section, they will head heading East into the county town of Haverfordwest. Riders will skirt around the outside of the town before heading on the B4327 towards Dale.
  • Again this section features rolling hills and so is ideal for riders to stretch their legs.
  • At the 32 mile mark, riders will descend into the picture postcard village of Little Haven.
  • However, the climb out of Little Haven will be one of the steepest on the course and is followed by the final 18 miles of undulating roads that will see riders pass by the beaches of Broad Haven, Nolton Haven and Newgale where riders will be faced with the infamous Newgale hill climb.
  • The course winds back to St David’s via Solva, which offers a great view of the harbour as riders climb the last challenging hill of the day.
70 mile course
Elevation gain – 5137ft
  • As with the 50 mile race, the 70 mile course starts and finishes at the iconic Bishops Palace.
  • The first 7 miles of the route are fairly flat allowing riders plenty of time to warm up.
  • Over the next 9 miles, riders will pass through the delightful coastal villages of Trefin and Abercastle before heading onto Mathry and St. Nicholas.
  • This section is undulating and features some gentle downhills to sea level and the inevitable ascents back out. The superb scenery should help riders with the burn.
  • Around the 17 mile mark, you will reach the most Northerly and highest point of the route near to Strumble Head.
  • Following on from this, riders will head south towards St Davids before turning inland cutting across the North Pembs Peninsular.
  • The first 8 miles of this section from Goodwick to Treddiog Farm consists of a good steady climb but this is followed by a series of fast descents.
  • Once riders have completed this section, they will head heading East into the county town of Haverfordwest. Riders will skirt around the outside of the town before heading on the B4327 towards Dale.
  • Again this section features rolling hills and so is ideal for riders to stretch their legs.
  • At the 52 mile mark, riders will descend into the picture postcard village of Little Haven.
