    Beacons 100 Ultra

    Corn Du, Unnamed Road 8NL, Brecon CF48 2HY, UKView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Beacons 100 trail running tour of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains begins on the bank of the Usk River in the market town of Brecon. An area we absolutely adore due to its beautiful scenery, unforgiving terrain and challenging weather conditions!

    Completion = 6 UTMB points for your efforts.

    To enter the Beacons100 it is expected that you will have completed a minimum of one 40 mile trail event in the 2018/2019 season and you can navigate effectively. We will host free navigation and footcare seminars leading up the event so if you are unsure about your navigation ability don't let that put you off. We welcome runners and hikers alike.

    Be aware that this is an incredibly tough adventure on remote trail...lots of peace and quiet!

    • Did the event in 2018

      My first ever ultra .... And first ever marathon distance . Absolutely amazing atmosphere .,everyone was so welcoming and encouragement was in abundance. Was a very hot day and plenty of water /drinks and food was supplied. If it wasn't for the fact that we are expecting an addition to the family I would be doing it again this year. I will however be volunteering to help out on the race day this year. Give back what you can.

      First ever 100k, Marshalls were great knew what they were doing and supportive when things got tough. Aid stations were like buffets, things to eat and drink for everyone. Route was beautiful and easy to navigate.

      I did this Ultra in 2018.

      It had an extremely friendly vibe throughout the entire day. From the race briefing where every one really was made to feel welcome, through every check point and again at the finish.

      2018 had a new slightly different route which had a much better finish than the previous year I thought, as this time it finished in the harbour by the pub with a big crowd cheering everyone in! It really was something else after 8 hours of slogging up and down the amazing but brutal course. The course is very interesting, through some stunning countryside it has to be said. It was well
      marked out and I didn’t get lost at all (which was a bit unexpected!)

      The checkpoints were all extremely well stocked too, with loads of selection and they all had very friendly volunteers at every one of them.

      I will be back again this year and I really can’t wait to do it all again (I just hope the weather isn’t quite so hot this time, it really didn’t help!)

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Blake Runner Ultra Marathon is a 50km race like no other. See what SAS Selection really takes as you run, climb, slide and scramble your way around the inner most depth of the Brecon Beacon Mountains. The fully marked route is not for the faint hearted. But those who succeed will be rewarded with such prestige as they cross the finish line at the infamous old red phone box, the very place former SAS men have stood tall themselves.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Gower was the first place in Britain to be designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). The unique peninsula is a protected haven for some of the richest and most varied wildlife habitats in the UK. The coastal trails here are set against an awe-inspiring natural backdrop of cliff tops, downland, woodland, sand dunes and world famous beaches. This trail running paradise is very accessible from most parts of the UK.

    • Did the Marathon in 2018

      Nothing out of the ordinary for a coastal trail event. Course was more or less as expected. I keep going back-and-forth on whether I would've preferred to run in the other direction. The majority of the muddiest spots were towards the end when legs were quite wobbly already. Saw a few people slip and fall. Advice to future runners - shoes w/ excellent traction.
    • Did the Ultra in 2018

      All was great , location , organisation, route. Only problem we had was my super supporter wife couldn't get to all the recommended view points, roads inaccessible, no parking etc.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

      Stunning views of Gower peninsula, bit wet and wild but worth it!
