PLEASE NOTE THAT A NEW DATE WILL BE AVAILABLE VERY SOON

Park Farm is the perfect starting point for this - our third Beast to be conquered. Leaving the farm you head via a beautiful forest arch onto a small section of the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal. Minutes later you will be on the trail through fields and ancient walk ways, before climbing  to the top of the Llangattock Escarpment. Views here are out of this world! the climb will be worth it that we promise. The Beautiful Black Mountains, Sugar Loaf and The Brecon Beacons will wow you! Heading south towards the edge of the mountain your aim is to meet the great and worthy Lonely Shepherd, a photo with this incredible stone is a must. Steeped in history and Welsh Folk tales. Leaving him to his sheep you will then head over open moorland, with the Clydach Gorge and its hidden waterfalls on the opposite valley, hosting signs of its long lost industrial industry, many features do still remain.

The open moorland will be more technical than strenuous but have no doubt they will challenge even the best! Heading across the moors you will be on the mountain trails heading over land towards the Llangattock Escarpment with the famous caves below.  Running above the caves system on the Craig y Cilau  you once again will be overwhelmed by the spectacular views. Descending Mynydd Llangattock you enter into a beautiful valley of natural beauty hosting rivers and an abundance of wildlife and birds. Crossing the Valley you will be mesmerised by its beauty. You final destination will take you into  ancient woods and streams before facing the infamous incline descent, technical and tricky but fast!  Leaving the trails behind you rejoin the canal over a stone stair case that brings you back onto the small but beautiful section of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal before you take your last trail into a wonderful forest arch and claim victory against the Beast.

The Beast of Llangattock will attract two distances. The 10 mile event will be repeated in reverse for the 20 mile event. Two well stocked energy zones will be on route, giving the 20 mile contenders four such zones.
