Avoid the Christmas rush and finish the year on a high by joining us for the Celtic Trail Races. With a choice of three exciting  routes following the old high level footpath the 'Coed Morgannwg Way' around the Afan forest and Rhigos mountainside, this is the perfect race to help you survive the upcoming week of indulgence! 

The route is entirely off road and goes through woodlands, pastures, moorland and mountainsides. It is a fast, fun, runnable route following some of Wales hidden trails over the vast expanse of the Afan Forest, Rhigos mountain range and surrounding hillsides. On your journey through ancient woodlands you will pass hidden reservoirs, towering wind turbines and unrivalled views of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The route culminates in a dramatic, fast descent into a lively and festive finish at Dare Valley Country Park.

There are 3 race distances to choose from all of which finish at the beautiful Dare Valley Country Park.
  • The Celtic Ultra is a circular route starting and finishing in Dare Valley Park - 34 miles - 5194 ft ascent.
  • The Celtic Trail Marathon is a circular route starting and finishing at Dare Valley Country park. 26 miles - 3050 ft ascent.
