Race Day Info

Getting here.

Please allow enough time to travel and park. Maenclochog is a rural village with narrow roads leading to it. Please  also allow enough time to register especially the Beast Bach with over 200 runners!!!


There are toilets at the village hall, but no showers. I will try and get a hosepipe/wash bin sorted to wash those dirty legs though 😉

There are many rooms in the village hall for you to change if need be, but please take off all dirty footwear before entering the hall……………….unless there’s an emergency of course!


This depends on the weather. If it’s dry, then registration(and more or less everything) will be done on the village green. Otherwise if it’s wet and wild, then it’ll be in the village hall a short walk away. Registration for The UltraBeasT and Preseli Beast will be open 08.30-09.45.    Beast Bach will be open 10.30-12.15. Please don’t come before this as your numbers wont be ready.

If you have pre-entered, then you will get your race number at registration. Please attach your unfolded race number on to your front!!! This will aid the CP and finish line marshals, and you wouldn’t want them to record the wrong number would you!

This year goody bags will be distributed at the finish with a bespoke slate coaster for your particular race and all important cake and food tokens for lovely grub which will be from Caffi’r sgwar. Nomnomnom! To stop unwanted waste, you must ensure you bring your own mug, bowl and spoon!

Last minute briefing and kit check will happen on start line if weather allows, or in the hall if weather is bad.

On the day registration might be possible if the event has not sold out. Check website before travelling down. If you do enter on the day there is the possibility that you will not get a goody bag. Check back after you finish to see if there are any spare.

Wearing headphones!– I strongly advise you not to wear any headphones that impede your hearing. A-It stops you from hearing marshals instructions; B-other runners may need assistance; C– You could be going the wrong way and others are trying to tell you; D-It distracts your thoughts and concentration; E– You might not hear vehicles!         I could go on!!! 

New mandatory sections.- For all runners- From the start to the end of Rosebush quarries, you must follow the markers. . For PB and UB runners only- between Llanerch(2nd time coming into the Gwaun), and Cnwc yr hydd.

Ultrabeast info! – Ultrabeast extra info Please read.

Finishing area. This is situated on the bottom green opposite the T-junction and is quite clearly seen. Please have a look at this and the finishing funnels before you start. There are two finish funnels- one for Preseli Beast/ Ultra Beast runners; the other for Beast Bach runners.  We don’t want you running into the wrong one!!! Please make sure your number is clearly visible from the front! 

The Beastly aftermath party! So, who’s coming? Approx. 7.30pm. Good food and a few beers before heading to the Globe! Can you please let me know by messenger or email if you intend on coming. It’s £7 a head.
