RAW Adventures are pleased to announce official provision of guided race Recce Events for the September 2021 and 2022 editions of the Dragon's Back Race®.

Join our 1 and 2 Day Recce Events to increase knowledge and confidence of the Dragon's Back Race® and help you train with other runners, enjoying the 'social' along the way.

This series of official Dragon's Back Race® Recce Event trips have been designed to focus on where runners want to spend the most time - based on feedback from previous Recce Events in 2019. These guided Recce Event trips run from September 2020 - July 2022, giving you a spread of dates to choose from. Most dates run over a weekend and some are on weekdays. Some Recce Events are 1 Day only - no accommodation included. And some are 2 Days and include one night away in a hostel or bunkhouse, allowing the team to journey over a longer distance, but always prioritising safety and logistics, so the long race days can be broken down into sections. 

RAW Adventures will ensure provision of experienced Recce Event Running Guides (who also qualified Mountain Leaders/Instructors) maximising efficient and rewarding progression in the hills. These Recce Events are managed as 'guided' events, where teams of runners will run together, accompanied by a Running Guide. This concept increases levels of safety, ability to manage logistics and timings and encourages runners to come together and find genuine running 'partners' for the 2021/2022 Dragon's Back Race® and beyond.

Costs for the two day course include:

  •  2-3 Recce Event Running Guides depending on group size/terrain
  •  Arranged car parking in an appropriate area (usually no charge)
  •  Transport logistics if required (to drop you off or pick you up from the running route)
  •  Group safety equipment and radio communications
  •  Valley support/driver and transport
  •  Planning and preparation to ensure the best route is achieved in forecasted conditions
  •  Excellent Dragon's Back Race® knowledge and advice
  •  A great running experience in Wales!
  •  1 x night accommodation in excellent quality hostels or bunkhouses
  •  Baggage transfer to overnight destination
  •  Arrangement of 1 x evening meal and 1 x breakfast option (costs paid directly on the event)
