Join us May 1st 2021 as we set-off to discover the HEARTLANDS of WALES and 30 miles of true welsh beauty. An ultra marathon designed to discover everything mid Wales has to offer. Starting from the town of Llanidloes, the route takes in the Sarn, Glyndwr’s Way, Severn Way and Wye Valley Walk. Heading out towards the breath taking Clywedog Reservoir, stepping on to the infamous Glyndwr’s Way, then onwards to the HEARTLANDS of WALES and the source of the River Severn before heading back to the picturesque town of Llanidloes.

The Heartlands of Wales

The Heartlands of Wales circular is a spectacular combination of 4 trails merged into 1. Meandering through the heartlands of Wales, the route takes in the Sarn, Glyndwr’s Way, Severn Way and Wye Walk in what must be one of the most spectacular areas of Wales.

Point of interest

The Clywedog reservoir is a reservoir near Llanidloes, Wales on the head-waters of the River Severn. Don’t worry, you won’t miss it!

Like we’ve stated previously, you’ve trained and paid to enter this race… We owe it to each Athlete to provide the help, support and time to get all to the finish line. Although we want our Athletes to challenge themselves, we don’t believe you have to run your heart out to do so. Take in the scenery, have a chat with a local, but most of all… Enjoy the trek!

In terms of Checkpoints, there will be 5 along the route. They will be fully manned and stocked with; snacks, fresh fruit, drinks, hot/cold food, resting areas, shelter where needed and Tom Jones on repeat! Please let us know of any special dietary requirements, as we will accommodate accordingly.
