Join us July 6th as we set-off to discover the HEART of WALES and 30 miles of true welsh beauty. An ultra marathon designed to discover everything Mid-Wales has to offer.

Starting from the town of Llanidloes, the route will take you out towards the breath taking Clywedog Reservoir then onwards to the HEART of WALES and the source of the River Severn before heading back to the picturesque town of Llanidloes.

Time Limits and Checkpoints

Please note we do not have time limits. Like we’ve stated previously, you’ve trained and paid to enter this race… We owe it to each Athlete to provide the help, support and time to get all to the Finish Line.

Although we want our Athletes to challenge themselves, we don’t believe you have to run your heart out to do so. Take in the scenery, have a chat with a local, but most of all… Enjoy the trek!

In terms of Checkpoints, there will be 6 along the route. They will be fully manned and stocked with; snacks, fresh fruit, drinks, hot/cold food, resting areas, shelter where needed and Tom Jones on repeat! Please let us know of any special dietary requirements, as we will accommodate accordingly.
