For those thinking of coming via train to try and reduce their carbon footprint, then the railway station at Clunderwen is only some 6miles away. I would try and arrange to pick you up if you’re coming down this way.  There has always been free camping the night before and on the night in the vilage hall car park field. Toilets only in the hall. 😉 Pub not far either!!!

Other Beastly Races:

The Brussel Buster! What better way to shake off those extra green balls of power from your Christmas excessiveness than running around, with a map, in the dark, for 2hrs! Well, here’s your chance. Date is going to be Friday 30th December, with the first runner off at 5pm. Start and finish will be from the main door of Tafarn sinc,Rosebush. You’ll be given a pre-marked map just before you start. Find as many checkpoints/books within 2hrs. However, you’ll be penalised for every 5minutes your over! Last year some runner lost 14 points for being over an hour late!!!

Preseli Dibdab mountain trial. Sun 25th JUNE 2023. Navigational event, £10 online entry only.  Staggered starts, with first runner off at 10.00hrs. 3 routes to choose from, approx.

And now, Ras Beca! (Seperate page coming soon) The previous organisers are hanging up their boots(after doing a sterling job I must say 😉 ), and it would be a real shame not to see this race carry on. So, I’ve taken it on. However, the 44th edition of this iconic race will not be on the usual Bank Holiday weekend!!! It’s now going to be on Sat 19th August. 5miles of rough and tough hilly boggy lovliness!!! Oh, and more tea and cake! What’s more to like? Also junior races as in previous years- Under 8s, 11s, 14s, and 16s. Childrens races from 1pm, adults from approx 1.30pm.
