The South CANUM – A 40 mile adventure along a wonderful Welsh waterway, following the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal.

Join us for a majestic 40 mile ultra marathon along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, this beautiful and peaceful waterway follows the line of the lovely Usk Valley through the Brecon Beacons National Park. Starting at Fourteen Locks, the route follows the ‘Mon and Brec’ all the way to the Brecon Basin.

The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal

The Mon & Brec for short, is a true hidden gem. A haven for wildlife and a favourite with nature-lovers, walkers and cyclists. This peaceful and almost entirely rural waterway is a must-see for adventure-lovers.

Point of interest

The canal passes through a World Heritage Site, which contains industrial landmarks such as the Big Pit Mining Museum. The Cefn Flight of fourteen locks has also been recognised as being of international significance, and is on Cadw‘s list of Scheduled Ancient Monuments.

Not to show off but The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is often voted Britain’s most prettiest canal… Come see for yourself!

Enough of the huff, sign up today, challenge your perceived limits and toe the line at the South CANUM.

Time Limits and Checkpoints – Please note we do not have time limits. Like we’ve stated previously, you’ve trained and paid to enter this race… We owe it to each Athlete to provide the help, support and time to get all to the Finish Line. 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 adventure!

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.

Coach Transfer – We provide an optional coach transfer from Brecon (the finish line) to Fourteen Locks (the start line) on the morning of the event. Meaning anyone catching the coach can leave their car in Brecon for the day (in parking areas close to the finish line that we have secured) and pick it up once they cross the finish line (40 miles later). Coach will depart Brecon at 04:45 hours and will cost an extra £10.00, which can be added on to any SiEntries entry.

Please note all runners riding the coach must let us know in advance, you can not just turn up on the morning of the event expecting a place if you haven’t let us know.

Fancy volunteering?

Volunteers are always welcome! Please send information to and we’ll get the ball rolling.
