Short Course – 58km / 3000m ascent / 24 hours

Our Welsh 10Peaks™ race is set in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. With its spectacular naturally glaciated landscapes and iconic red sandstone cliffs, this is the home to Southern Britain’s highest point, Pen Y Fan. At 886 meters, the summit of the Fan provides stunning views of the Black Mountains to the east, the Bristol Channel to the South and the most spectacular ridgelines that you will be passing over during the race.

The Brecon Beacons are steeped in history, with standing stones, hill fort sites and castles, Soldiers of different historic periods have been occupying the area for thousands of years, with the SAS being the most recent. There is a reason why the UK special forces use the Brecon Beacons for testing their recruits, and you are about to find out why!
