The Exodus is a 100 mile (160 Km) Ultra Marathon across the Brecon Beacons starting on 7th of December 2018.

The route follows the full length of Beacons Way footpath with a total ascent of just over 23,000ft (7100m). The route takes you east to west across the Brecon Beacons National Park. Starting in LLangadog and finishing in Abergavenny.

The race starts at 7pm on Friday the 7th December and has a 48 hour time limit to reach Abergavenny (7pm on Sunday the 9th December). Meaning competitors must average 2.08 miles (3.3km) per hour to complete the race.

There are 3 checkpoints on route that all competitors must pass through within a time limit. Each checkpoint (with the exception of Story Arms) is a community hall/leisure centre that is well stocked with food, hot drinks and water for competitors to recharge and re-supply.

There will also be floor space at some checkpoints for competitors to sleep if they so wish. Competitors can use drop bags, accessible at each checkpoint.

Every competitor is given a GPS tracker so we can see where you are at all times during the race and your family and friends can watch your progress online. The GPS tracker is also equipped with a SOS button, so if you do have a problem we can find you.

The event has full medical support supplied by Trail Med. TrailMed have a wealth of experience supporting races of this kind and consist of paramedics and consultant doctors.
