  Race Route

This event is not scheduled to take part in 2021.... however a 'maprun' version of the event will take place on Sunday 18th July. See Waun Fach V2 event. 

In 2013 the start was changed to the road outside Cwmfforest Riding Centre (previously behind pub in Pengenffordd).

A short section of road leads to the track and path leading up over Rhiw Trumau to the Col at 617. Then comes a short steep section up to Pen Trumau and after, the broad ridge up to Waun Fach - a new gravel path has been made to (and at) the top. The old concrete top marker has been removed. Heading north west the route is initially on an improved gravel path then continues on the former grassy/boggy eroded path, all the way to Pen Y Manllwyn. At a cairn the route then descends west and down the Dragons Back (Y Grib). A few undulations then take you to the sting in the tail - the final pull up to the old fort.
