Final Race in the Winter League series – followed by presentations.
The inaugural running of this challenge event will take place on April 2nd. 2022. The race distance will be 50.3 km (31.25 miles) and the total ascent and descent is 5,361ft (1634m). Most of the race will be off road with some short road sections including the hellish steep ascent (25%) of the iconic Devil’s staircase. The race will test endurance and stamina but will reward the runner with a fantastic and lasting memorable experience.
At the finish there will be Welsh cawl / vegetarian alternative. Each runner will receive a unique devil medal and there will be prizes for the first three male and female runners and a technical T Shirt for all finishers
