The South CANUM 2020 – A 40 mile adventure along a wonderful Welsh waterway, following the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. Sponsored by Rokman, SC Sport Centre and Enduraprep.

Join us for a majestic 40 mile ultra marathon along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, this beautiful and peaceful waterway follows the line of the lovely Usk Valley through the Brecon Beacons National Park. Starting at Fourteen Locks, the route follows the ‘Mon and Brec’ all the way to the Brecon Basin.

Not to show off but The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is often voted Britain’s most prettiest canal… Come see for yourself!

Viva la Wales!

Please note – Coach transfer is available from Brecon to Fourteen Locks on the morning of the event – meaning you can leave your car in Brecon, ride the coach to the start line and pick up your car from Brecon when you cross the finish line. Just select the coach option when signing up.

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 Athlete’s 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 adventure!

In terms of Checkpoints, there will be 5 along the route. They will be fully manned and stocked with; snacks, fresh fruit, drinks, music and the odd beer. Please let us know of any special dietary requirements, and we will accommodate accordingly.
