The Brecon Beacons Trail Running Challenge is now entering its 8th year at Gilestone Farm in Talyboont-on Usk and is one of the most popular events on the trail running calendar in Wales.

It is so popular we’ve added a second date to make it a weekend extravaganza of trail running with a new Back2Back Challenge over both the Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May 2022.
