The Black Beacon Ultra is a challenging 52 mile mountain race crossing the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. It is probably the best and most challenging 50+ mile mountain ultra-distance route in Southern Britain. The route starts at midnight on Friday in the Market town of Hay-on-Wye at the Northern end of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and finishes at the Southern tip of the Brecon Beacons in Hirwaun 52 miles and 3860m of ascent later.  This gives you 74 meters of ascent per mile - on a par with the Dragons Back! (76 per mile)

It is perfect as an outright challenge in itself, but is also particularly suitable for anyone training for longer mountain ultras later in the year, or wanting to experience an exciting race through the night. The terrain is classic Brecon Beacons following good quality, well maintained runnable mountain trails, with numerous mountain summits and long fast non-technical descents where you can let rip!
