About the Event

Essential Information:

Event Information:

We will run the traditional Pen Y Fan horseshoe route. It will summit Fan Y Big, Cribyn, Pen Y Fan and Corn Du. Runners must leave Bristol at 07.30 to meet at 09.00 at the Taf Fechen Forest Car Park. To take part in this event you should be fit for running hills and should be able to run 20km on mountainous terrain comfortably. 

The weather could turn at any minute on this route making it potentially dangerous, so this run is for experienced trail and fell runners only. Please do not attend if you feel as though you do not have the required experience. If you are unsure, please email us to discuss.
