If you are going to recce this route please be aware the start and finish of this race is on private land. This section will be marked on the day.

Grim Reaper fell race is set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in an outstanding location, based at Llangors multi activity centre.

The idea being a tough, short, winter hill race for those that love descending. The race was formed around the descent, which gives you a spectacular view of Llangors lake as you make your way from the trig.

Please be aware this is a tough, short race, AS meaning short, hard! The race is all on open fell (the start and finish on private land which will be marked) with typical hazards such as, mud, rocks, streams, barbed fences. Also some navigational choices and two check points.

The weather can be a challenge and also differ from the start to the top. Please bring full kit as WFRA stipulate. A decision will be made on the day. If you haven’t got appropriate kit you cannot race. I recommend good grippy trainers.

This is a friendly, family event all are welcome. This year we have new routes for the juniors organised by Mynydd Du mini dragons. All routes will be well marked and marshaled. An adult must be present with juniors. Please also bring good kit.

Prize giving will be held in the warm, snug cafe with free chips to munch on.

The family have kindly allowed us to use their facilities, please buy refreshments and respect their centre by removing muddy trainers before entering.

Look forward to seeing you. Rona.
