The Black Beacon trail races are linear mountain-trail running races crossing the Brecon Beacons National Park from North to South. There are three race distances to choose from, a Trail Marathon starting in Brecon, a 34 mile Ultra starting in Llangynidir, and a  52 mile ultra starting at 11pm on Friday night in Hay-on-wye. All races finish in Dare Valley Country Park at the Southern Edge of the National Park. 

Dare Valley Country park is an excellent event base, with an amazing café, camping and caravanning pitches available on site, gentler walks and play area for friends and family, and easy road and rail access.

There are 7 well stocked checkpoints for the Ultra 52mile, 4 for the Ultra 34mile and 4 for the Trail Marathon race. There are also 3 manned Mountain Safety Points which are on the top of the mountain passes and summits to help guide you around the course and ensure you have a great day! 

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 in the UK or abroad. The terrain is classic Brecon Beacons following good quality, well maintained runnable mountain trails, with numerous mountain summits, beautiful waterfalls, stunning forests and long fast descents where you can let rip!

Entry includes:

  • Gps Tracker
  • Finishers Medal
  • CAVRA first aid support
  • Mountain safety team on the hills
  • Well supported checkpoints
  • A beautiful, tough route
  • Marking at junctions
  • Event car parking

As the route is linear you can either get dropped of at the start or add coach transport (£10) from the finish to the start location before each race.
