The RIDUM 2021 – A 30 mile challenge around the hills of South East Wales and the Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk.
Join us for an exhilarating 30 mile ultra marathon around the Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk, with 4252 feet of elevation this little beast in the East is a great way to explore the lesser known trails within a stones throw of the Welsh Capital.
The Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk
The Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk is a waymarked long distance footpath in Wales forming a circular walk around the ridge tops of Caerphilly basin encircling the River Rhymney. From the elevated ridgeway you can expect spectacular views across south east Wales as well as a varied route encompassing lanes, trail and woodland.
Point of interest
Mynydd Machen is the highest point of the trail, a 362-metre-high (1,188 ft) hill lying between the town of Risca and the village of Machen in Caerphilly County Borough in south Wales. Yep… You go up and over it!
Enough of the huff, sign up today, challenge your perceived limits and toe the line at the RIDUM in 2021.

Although we want our Athlete’s to challenge themselves, we don’t believe you have to run your heart out to do so. Take in the scenery, have a chat with a local, but most of all… Enjoy the trek!
In terms of Checkpoints, there will be 4 along the route. They will be fully manned and stocked with; snacks, fresh fruit, drinks, music and the odd beer. Please let us know of any special dietary requirements, and we will accommodate accordingly.
