Waw, it’s been a busy start since entries opened with many of you getting down and dirty to entering early. 😉 Some new runners, and many returning for more……………cake! 🙂 Thank you everyone. If you’ve entered, can you please check your details and let me know if there’s something wrong or you want me to change. All the entrants on the list are up to the 17th Feb.
Yes, that’s right folks, entries are now fully open. 🙂
You might notice that the website has had a bit of a makeover. Hopefully this will make it easier for you, and for me. If you can’t find anything that you’re looking, or experiencing issues, then please get in touch.
Below is the logo that will be on the front of the Tshirts this year. Thanks to Chris Welton for designing it. 🙂 Colour might vary.
You’d best be quick as I’m ordering the Tshirts Wednesday morning!
Quick update on route! Those who have run before will know about the stiles on the first section to Rosebush which you also do on the last. Well the national parks have been super helpful as they’re opening them up with temporary fencing so that you will be able to run straight through. 😉 Diolch guys, 😉
Please let me know asap if your details are wrong….or not even there! 😉 Now you’ve seen what the Tshirts look like and want one(even though you hadn’t ordered one previously) then you can still do so up till the 25th April clearly indicating size.
Cheers all. 😉
Ps- Last date to make sure you get a full goody bag including slate coaster is 26th April!
It’s been busy busy in Beast HQ the past few days. Sorting out entries and placing orders for various Beastly things. The designer queen that is Mrs P and myself(with some help from Rhyds!), have come up with a different slogan and got the designs for the Tees done too! So, what do you think?
Yes, more updates from Beast HQ. Firstly, the entries update shows that the Beast Bach has reached 74 and is closing slowly on the Preseli Beast which has today reached 84! Thanks to all of you who have entered, and please check details on the list if you’ve entered.
Sponsorship letters have gone out to the fabulous local businesses this week, and we’ve already have a 1/3rd of the trophies sponsored for! The race numbers have kindly been sponsored by Etts electrical, and we have a Tshirt sponsor by ‘The Globe’. Handy for refreshments after a hard day in the hills!!! Thank you all.
We’ve come up with this years branding around the slate coaster? In the past we’ve had ‘Can you tame the Beast’, ‘Return of the Beast’, ‘Burden of the Beast’, and ‘Desolation of the Beast’. This year however is the 5th year, and although we’re not using the word Beast, it sort of suits our sense of humour………Flit of the Five Fanged Fiend! The Beast will have lost one of it’s fangs, and they’d also have grown too!!!
We’ve also been busy coming up with a design for the Tshirt, and although we don’t have a design to show you yet, we reckon you’re going to like it.
So entries are continuing to come in at a steady flow. The Beast is storming ahead, and it’s already surpassed previous years entries. If you’ve entered, please check all your details are correct on the list by clicking on either of the respective races in blue below.
Cotswolds Carmarthen have agreed again to support the event by giving Solomon sports bags to the winners, giving discount vouchers for their store as well as helping to fill the goody bags. Thank you Cotswolds Carmarthen. 😉
Etts electrical have already signed up to sponsor the race numbers. Thank you. 😉
First the good- I’m honoured to announce that the 24 mile Preseli Beast race has been chosen to be in the Welsh champs fell series for the first time…….ever! It’s been part of the South Wales series before, but not the welsh champs. The series comprises of six races-3 in the North, 3 in the South, and it’s a great excuse of running in some new races. To qualify for the champs series you need to take part in at least 3 of the 6 in the series, and there’s a very good chance of coming away with a prize as not many can manage 4 of the 6. The Beast also happens to be the first in the series, and is the only long category race! Welsh Champs series
Now for the ‘sort of’ not so good news…….I won’t be running the UltrabeasT in 2017! Why? Three reasons; 1-It will hopefully boost numbers for the 24 miler and make it into a cracking champs race; 2- It will hopefully make you think about doing the series and boost numbers for the other races in the series; 3-I have the biggest race in my life a few weeks after and will be trying to save as much time to train and rest for that. It’s going to be tough enough anyway!!! I hope those wanting to do the UB will understand my reasons. For those who have never done the Preseli Beast, then enter it as even that’s tough enough!!! And if you still want to run a bit more than 24 miles, then why not run back up to the highest top via the ‘wall of death’!!!
