What you need to know about Ultramarathon Running

An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.

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 Welsh 3000s Run Challenge is a 1 day, fully guided and supported run along the highest mountains of Wales. The traditional 24 hour challenge to complete the 15 peaks is a tough ask, but doable for most moderately fit walkers who have prepared well. We will be moving relatively quickly for this challenge, and shall be running sections where appropriate, to gain an overall completion time of around 15 hours. We shall average a fast walking pace, using the more runnable ground for some running where possible, allowing ourselves the time to pace ourselves appropriately by taking it easy on the long climbs. This however, is dependant on a number of factors, not least the weather conditions. The route represents a real challenge, and is undertaken in a mountainous environment where previous experience is absolutely necessary for those taking this on. The route involves a lot of ascent (12,000ft), and at over 27 miles in length it represents a serious undertaking for those that are well prepared. Some (Grade 1) scrambling that never gets very difficult, but on Crib Goch the exposure is significant and participants must have a good head for heights and be comfortable in the mountain environment. Yes, its tough, but the rewards for those that take it on are truly great. The Welsh 3000s one for 2018?! A maximum of 8 persons are permitted for this challenge.
