New for 2019, the Brecon Beacons Mountain Trail Races are two races set in the heart of the National Park that will take you to some new and not often explored places and classic trails!  The route takes in quarries, waterfalls, mountains summits and high level paths.

The Route
The Ultra race route starts in the small village of Trefil at the boundary of the Brecon Beacons National Park.  From here the route heads out towards the Central Brecon beacons on fast trails. The first summit is Pant-y-Creigiau followed by a swift descent and then a climb past waterfalls to the top of Fan Y Big and then another drop this time to the Roman Road before looping round to Cwm Gwdi.  From here the Trail 22 route joins the Ultra with an ascent up the North Ridge of Pen Y Fan.  After summiting Corn Du you will then head down past the Storey arms Centre and follow the excellent Beacons Way footpath as you head to the summit of Fan Llia and then a fast, fun descent down to Ystradfellte.  From here the route heads through fast runnable forest trails into Waterfall Country as you pass under the Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall the highlight of the route.  The last few miles take you past the famours Penderyn distilary along the Celtic trail to the finish in Hirwaun on the edge of the National Park.
