With over 200 entries in 2012, this race is a must-do event in the UK ultra calendar... please book early to guarantee a place as the race was full in 2012.
This is the ideal step-up from Marathon to Ultra Marathon for anybody wanting to test themselves at the next level. Cardiff's Taff Trail provides a stunning route which is easy to follow and, although undulating, is ultimately downhill.
The 50 mile route starts at Brecon and follows the Taff Trail through the Brecon Beacons National Park, past Cyfarthfa Castle and Castell Coch, before arriving at Sport Wales, Sophia Gardens (Cardiff) where the race finishes.
A large proportion of the Taff Trail is designated "Traffic Free" which has been achieved by using the routes of former tramways, railways, canals and present day canal towpaths, including the original rights-of-way, embankments, cuttings and viaducts. Many of these routes have important historical significance to the industrial heritage of South Wales.
