Sometimes the best adventures are just on your doorstep, and the VOGUM is no exception. Picture the scene… Clear sky, warm weather and the sun beating down as you glide your way along the Wales Coast Path.

Remember, this is Wales and anything goes when it comes to the summer weather. We had a brilliant sun-filled day in 2018, and we're hoping history repeats itself in 2019!

The 40 mile journey starts in Porthcawl and ends in lovely Penarth, following the Wales Coast Path for the majority.

This Challenge is perfect for anyone looking to push themselves, all whilst having a good time with other members of the community.

The route will be clearly marked with checkpoints and aid stations to keep all on course and get you to the finish line safely.

At Pegasus Ultra Running, We are all about 'The Athlete's Experience'. We believe that if you put the time and dedication into training for one of our events, We will do anything possible to help you see it through.
