The countdown begins!

So, with just over a week to go it’s starting to get a bit frantic in Beast HQ. Entries are still coming in, and I’m starting to worry if we have enough………….cake! 287 entries so far, and numbers in all categories have increased from last years event.

Orders have been made for the coasters, Tshirts, trophies, and the new car stickers! It was one thing I forgot last year, but I’ve somehow remembered to get them done this year. They’ll look a bit like this.

So if you haven’t got your entry in now, then you will probably miss out on the Tshirt, so please don’t order one in case we don’t have any. We might have one or two spare on the day, but we won’t know what size!

Help is coming from all different directions this year. We have people from Cumbria, to South Wales, as well as the Pembrokeshire locals coming to help. I had a message today from a runner who’d entered the UltrabeasT saying that he can’t run now, but is still coming down with his kids to help out! Waw, the support is shamazing and takes my breath away sometimes. Thank you all for making this event what it is.

Thanks too to my 2nd in command, Rachel, for putting up with my madness, for her brilliant creativeness, and for being so understanding when I just come up with these crazy ideas. 😉

Now don’t overdo it this week now, or the Beast will have you. 😉

Caz the hat.



Mock up of T-shirts

So here we have the mock up of the Preseli Beast Tshirt design. They’ll be in colour obviously. The other races have a slightly different design and in a different colour. If you’ve entered already and haven’t ordered a Tshirt, but now fancy one, then get your orders in asap as I’ll be ordering Monday night 25th April!!!

Don’t forget also that I need entries in by 25th April to guarantee getting the amazing slate coaster! 😉

It’s shamazing!

It’s getting a bit mental now with entries coming in from all over the place. I had 16 entries yesterday…….with 10 of those from Holland!!! Dank u. Do they know that the Preselis have hills?

Here’s the potential beast tamers list so far. As you can see, it’s growing. Thank you all who have entered. Let me know if there’s something wrong.

I’ve had some more shamazing news this week. Cotswolds Outdoors Carmarthen have agreed to donate a Salomon running pack to each male and female overall winner…… each race!

And a new local company who will be launching their new sport supplement business at the ‘Beast expo’, and are supplying protein bars for the goody bags. They will have a stand for you to try various products and shakes. Cheers Tim. 😉

Frontrunner company are busy doing the trophy and T-shirt proofs, and the slate coaster order will be made soon, so please get your entries in asap. 😉

Cheers, Caz the hat

Less than a month to gooooooo!!!

Yes there’s less than a month to go before the fourth running of the Beast event, and even less time to the first Carn Ingli Killer midweek evening race!!!

So, what’s new? Well, entries are coming in thick and fast in all categories. The Beast Bach has soared ahead of the UltrabeasT now with 82 entrants(like it did last year), and the Preseli Beast race has just had a quick surge of entries too pushing it up to 40 entrants, whilst the UltrabeasT is just passed the 50 mark with 52 entrants .

April fools Beastly news.

So Maricraft slate company have agreed to make the brilliant slate coasters again ths year.

It’s brilliant to have Fishguard chiropracting clinic and The Globe Inn, Maenclochog support the Preseli Beat event, and to get our names onto the back of the T-shirts.

Entries are still coming in, and I’m wondering who UltrabeasT no 50 will be??? There were only 31 entrants in total for the first outing of this beastie last ear, so it’s nearly doubled within a year!!!

I’m also delighted to hear again that the 24 mile Preseli Beast race is part of the South Wales fell running championships. It’s the also the longest race out of the series of six!

And as for the Beast Bach, then it continues to be attracting seasoned runners and off-road beginners alike. It might onl be a third of the UltrabeasT, but it certainly packs in some brilliant varied terrain and some tough climbs.

So, if you haven’t entered, what are you waiting for!!! There’s cake at the end too!

Please remember that there are other off-road races organised by myself too? The new Carn Ingli Killer series, and the Ras y Cerrig las race.  There’s also a new off-road trail race nearby called the Narberth Nobbler organised by some like minded runners. Should be a great year for getting muddy daps!

Caz the hat.
