The PIGUM - A 30 mile adventure around the Gateway to Wales (y Porth i Gymru).
Join us for a heart pounding 30 mile ultra marathon around the mountain peaks and trails of Abergavenny, with 5,000 feet of elevation this little beauty will live long in the memory and in the legs.
Abergavenny - the gateway to Wales
The market town of Abergavenny will play host to the PIGUM. A town steeped in history with some of the most well loved mountains in Wales, let alone the UK.
Point of interest
The Sugar Loaf mountain dominates the skyline of the surrounding countryside and provides a spectacular backdrop to the PIGUM.
Peering between the ridges of the Llanwenarth, Deri and Rholben hills, the Sugar Loaf is one of the highest peaks in the heart of the Black Mountains. It stands at 1,955 feet high and offers glorious panoramic views across south Wales, the Brecon Beacons, and into south-west England.
Yep, you've guessed it - you go right over it! Join us for the PIGUM and run with Pegasus!

Take in the scenery, have a chat with a local, but most of all… enjoy the adventure!
