Event information:

Registration opens at 05:00. The walk starts off bright an early at 06:00 and the walk takes you through Brecon on the old road towards Storey Arms. You will then ascend up Pen-Y-Fan and across towards Cribyn, before coming down off the Beacons towards Pentwyn Reservoir. The route then loops around Pontsticill and Pentwyn Reservoirs and up towards Talybont Forest. Here you will join the Taff Trail again through the forest and into Talybont. From Talybont, the route takes you steadily along the Brecon and Monmoushire Canal Path along the home straight into the Canal Basin, where you will be greeted by supporters, family, friends and a well-deserved medal! 

In teams of four to six people, you will need to complete the route within 17 - 18 hours. You'll need a support car to meet you at designated checkpoints to help you refuel and carry your kit. The route is fully signed and supported by mountain leaders and our events team.

Early bird entry fee is only £60!

General registration (1 February 2018 on wards) will be £75

This includes the support driver and the first six in a team. £10 entry fee for each extra walker over the original six team members.
