We are excited to deliver a maybe much needed Ultra after all the food & wine consumed over Christmas and the New Year. With a little twist to the rules as we launch.

We intend to give medals to anyone who reaches 32 miles ie ULTRA, the winning Male and Female who are last standing will  be allocated a TROPHY.

Set just outside Crickhowell deep in the Black Mountains the route will be 50/50 Trail and Tarmac, with only one gradual climb and a short steep section, the rest is relatively flat terrain which mean fast.

You will be fed & watered with hot food for everyone regardless if you run 20 - 100+++

Here are the rules :

We have a 4.167 mile loop 

1/ Starting Corral

 Participants must be in the starting corral at the bell

2/ Starts
. Each loop starts precisely 1 hour after the last
. They will be  given 3, 2, and 1 minutes prior to start
. All competitors must start at the bell (no late starts)

3/ Loops
. Except for restrooms, competitors may not leave the course until each loop is completed
. No non-competitors on the course (including eliminated runners)
. No personal aid during a loop (common aid stations are allowed) one will be at HQ
. Each loop must be completed within an hour to be counted… including the final lap.
. No artificial aids (including trekking poles)
. Slower runners must allow passes.

5/ Timing
. Timing of the loops is optional - we will have timing 

6/ Winner/Results
. The winner is the last person to complete a loop both Male & Female
