Route description
Route description

The terrain is mixed/light trail. This means it combines grassy trails, hard rock trails, tarmac trails, with some road sections mainly around Barry. The last 14 miles of the courses are on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which is almost entirely soft trail along cliff top fields, and paths.

The best type of trainer for the vale route would be a trail trainer which is comfortable for road sections. These are commonly referred to as ‘city-trail’, ‘light trail’ or ‘hybrid’ trainers.

If there is a lot of rain in the preceding days, then a more aggressive trail trainer with better grip would be best.

The route follows the marked Wales Coastal Path along the entire route. The Vale portion of the Wales Coastal Path is the closest to the sea and the route is very easy to follow. Whilst the route is self navigation, as long as you follow the clifftop and sign posts it is very simple. All of the route follows the coast and the paths are very well marked by Coastal Path signs. It is possible to navigate the route completely using these signs but all competitors will be provided with a marked map and detailed route explanations to help you find your way around the course.

Checkpoints

There will be 4 manned checkpoints (2 for the short course) which will provide refreshments, usually water, flat coke, tea & coffee, sweets, biscuits, crisps, nuts etc. Details of where the checkpoints are at can be seen on the FAQ page. The link is at the bottom of this page.
