  • Did the 10k in 2018

    You did warn of "mud" which was a good thing. The upper field was just a bit dodgy due to the hard dried mud forming ruts which were potential ankle twisters. The fields were, though, a lovely part of the run.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Would have been nice to have a more secure bag drop.

May Mud RunsSt Davids, Haverfordwest SA62 6DG, UK

The Man Up UKs Mud Run is quite simple. Take unforgiving land, idyllic scenery, an abundance of natural obstacles, with a few extra man made challenges. Put all of these ingredients together and we have an action packed course suitable for all. (with a bit of training!)

The Really Muddy Weekend is ideal for all. Whether youre a group of friends, a touring sports team, a family day out, a work related team building session or as a charity fundraiser. It really can hit all the buttons.

The Mud Runs will be the main attraction but the weekend could be much more. Why not make the most of it and use the opportunity for a camping or Bunkhouse stay at this magnificent location? Celtic Camping is literally on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path overlooking Abereiddy Bay. A great place for a relaxing or adventure break.

The one day option is not only a great challenge in its self it is an ideal recce and preparation for taking on the big one, one day.

The day will begin at St Dogmaels and starts with a 2.5 mile climb to the highest point on the entire Pembrokeshire Coast Path. And we wont lie the northern coast of the Path is the most rural, isolated and hilliest but is also spectacular and gives you a real sense of being in the wilderness. The route will take in 6770ft of elevations over its 66.6 miles (which happens to be the same as our previously run To hell and back ultra.

Other than being a very challenging run this route will take you past some of the coastal jewels in the North Pembrokeshire section of the National Park. You will pass by some great scenic and steeped in history iconic locations such as Dinas Head, The Jemima Nichols monument and the site if the last invasion of the UK, Strumble Head, The Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy, Wales Most Westerly Point at St Davids Head, The Birth Place of St Davids at St Nons to name but a few. All great spots that will help you overcome the physical and mental hurdles of the day!

Marathon des Cote (186mile, 3 Day Ultra)28 High St, St Dogmaels, Cardigan SA43 3EJ, UK

The 'Marathon of the Coast' is run from St Dogmaels on the North Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion border and takes in the entire 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (The UKs only coastal National Park) and finishes at Amroth on the South Pembrokeshire / Carmarthenshire border.

The path is made up mainly of rugged uneven ground which covers a diverse route that will see you run high along open and exposed sea cliffs as well as underneath them at sea level as you pass through the numerous fishing hamlets, villages and towns as well as taking you through some of the most iconic and historic locations in Wales.

The course is visually stunning and due to the nature of the terrain and the elevation loss and gain being over 30,000ft it is also one of the most difficult you will run anywhere in the world. This really is a bucket list run!

The Fan Dance Summer EditionUnnamed Road, Brecon LD3 8NL, UK

The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km non-navigational race over two sides of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. This infamous route has long been a part of SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) Selection and is considered the yardstick of a candidate's potential to perform well on Test Week and ultimately pass the Special Forces Selection programme.

Starting at the iconic old red phone box the race goes straight up to the summit checkpoint of Pen Y Fan and, after descending "Jacob's Ladder", continues along an undulating stone vehicle track (the "Roman Road") to the second checkpoint which also serves as a tea stop and turnaround point. Then, taking the route in reverse, racers climb back up "The Fan" via Jacob's ladder and pass through the summit checkpoint a second time before legging their way back down to the finish at the old red phone box.

The route is a real lung buster that throws everything at you, including the elements. There are steady slopes that allow a solid jogging pace, shocking inclines that have you almost on your hands and knees, loose stone tracks that require cautious foot placements and a forested vehicle track that allows for some rapid going. Even SAS recruits at the height of their physical abilities regard beating the clock in this event as a serious challenge, and all know its capacity to hurt. Aside from the race aspect of this event, just getting to the end is an accomplishment and something to be proud of.

The Fan Dance is open to ANYONE looking for a unique challenge: be it personal, competitive, as a sponsored participant in aid of your favourite charity or as part of a team building exercise. As per real Special Forces Selection, the event will be staged in both summer and winter (both load-bearing and clean fatigue).
