The changed route in 2016 was well received so we will be sticking with this for 2017. A spectacular run around and down from Gilwern Hill, a traverse of “The Tumble” and an excursion through the lava-like landscape of the canyons of Pwll Du... and who could forget the finish up and down the infamous volcano?

This gives an approximate distance of 8 miles.

It really is the most interesting off-road race, with some spectacular scenery set amongst a backdrop of remote moorland-like areas and old quarry workings. A route for connoisseurs!
