2018 Race report

Race HQ


A new event in the South Wales Calendar. This tough event is the 'Big Brother' of the Darrens Dash Hill Race and starts and finishes in the village of Longtown. The route crosses Hatterrall Ridge via Loxidge Tump and descends steeply to Llanthony Priory before ascending to the 552m trig point and returning to Longtown via the Rhiw.
Due to seasonal bird nesting restrictions BBNP have asked me to amend the route. The route is now a little longer and the change follows the red marked section on the map below.

There will be 7 marshals on the route to ensure no corners are cut - see numbers on map.
To help the organisers with race admin on the day, please enter in advance if you can - beat the queues and pick up your race number:

Full kit must be carried (Body and leg cover, Hat, Gloves, Map, Compass, Whistle).

The event proceeds will go to the Longtown OEC Bursary Fund to enable deprived youngsters to experience their own outdoor adventures in the local area.
