The VOGUM – A 40 mile challenge along the Wales Coast Path from Porthcawl to Penarth.
Picture the scene… clear sky, warm weather and the sun beating down as you glide your way along the Wales Coast Path. Remember, this is Wales and anything goes when it comes to the summer weather.
This Challenge is perfect for anyone looking to push themselves, all whilst having a good time with other members of the community. The route will be clearly marked with checkpoints and aid stations to keep all on course and get you to the finish line safely.
The Vale Coast Path
This invigorating route takes in golden beaches, dramatic cliffs, Ogmore Castle and the infamous stepping stones. 40 miles of this amazing path runs through the Glamorgan Heritage Coast from Porthcawl in the West to Penarth in the East.
Point of interest
Ogmore Castle was one of a number of fortifications built in the late eleventh/early twelfth century to secure the Vale of Glamorgan which had been seized by Robert Fitzhamon and his retainers. After you cross the infamous stepping stones, take a look to your left.
Enough of the huff, sign up today, challenge your perceived limits and toe the line at the VOGUM.

Time Limits and Checkpoints – Please note we do not have time limits.

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.

Meaning anyone catching the coach can leave their car in Penarth for the day and pick it up once they cross the finish line (40 miles later). Coach will depart Penarth at 04:30 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.
