  One of the classic South Wales fell races taking in three major peaks in the Black Mountains.
This is a linear race, not a circuit. You have to arrange your own transport or cadge a lift on an adhoc basis on the day to get from the finish to start. The start is at Llanbedr village (NP8 1SR) and the finish is at the Rugby Club in Blaenavon.

Full Kit Requirements as per FRA ruling: waterproof whole body cover (with taped seams and integrated attached hood), hat, gloves, map of the route, compass, whistle and emergency food. Any changes to this will be announced at registration. Otherwise please assume full kit. The end of March can be a very changeable time of year for weather -  spring sunshine or snow - and often both on the same day! 

Either leave your car at the finish and buddy up for a lift to the start or we will try to group people for lifts after the prize giving to collect cars. If you leave your vehicle at the start it's about 25 minutes from the finish to collect it.

Prize giving will be at 3.30 pm sharp. Please don't leave before the prize giving unless you really have to - it's part of the event!
