June 26th, Talybont-On-Usk, Brecon, Wales
If you are looking for a fresh challenge that will push you to your limits this could be it…
This is not one for the faint hearted! The Midnight Mountain Marathon is a race over the peaks of the Brecon Beacons. The course crosses some of Wales’ most stunning scenery through forests, over streams, past waterfalls and up mountains.
The difference between this and any other mountain marathon, is that you start at 5.30PM and have to finish before the midnight cut off.
The race uses part of the ‘Fan Dance’ which is a the infamous run taken on by potential members of British Special Forces as part of their selection process. This includes an ascent of Pen y Fan (2,907ft / 886m) which is the highest peak in South Wales.
