Beastly entries for 2020 have…….OPENED!

Oh yeah, it’s what you’ve all been waiting for I know. Time to book in for more cake!!! Race day is Saturday 2nd May, and most things are the same as last year. I’m limiting numbers on Beast Bach entries to 250; Preseli Beast and UltrabeasT to 200 in total.

Beast Bach route will be fully marked, whereas both the other two races will be semi marked. There will be a new section at approx. 13-14miles, but this will be marked. I’ll be producing a waterproof map with the two routes on it, and these will be available to buy at cost on the day. Happy days.

T-shirt orders will cease mid April!

Will there be cawl and cake? Absolutely!

Will you be there? Depends if you like cawl and cake!


Thanks Tim for your help. 😉

Charge of the Beast Tamers(as written by the Martin/Boorman family).

Half a mile, half a mile
Half a mile onward.
Into the beast’s lair
Ran the fell runners
“Forward the beast tamers
Run for the cakes and cawl.”
Into the beast’s lair
Ran the beast tamers.

Forward the Beast Tamers
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the entrants knew
Someone had floundered.
Theirs not to reason why
Theirs but to do and smile
Into the Beast’s lair
Ran the beast tamers.

Bogs to the right of them
Hills to the left of them
Valleys ahead of them
Onward and Upward
Hill followed by rocky hill
Boldly they ran and well
Into the Gwaun Valley
Onto Carn Ingli’s rocks
Ran the beast tamers.

Flashed all those lily white legs
Flashed as they did their best
Dripping with mud and sweat
Encouraged by volunteers
Checking their numbers
Plunged into mist and fog
Up to their necks in bog
Smile for the camera then
Reel at the steepest of slopes
Staggered and wondered
Then they ran onwards, over
over and upwards.

Bogs to the right of them
Hills to the left of them
Valleys ahead of them
Onward and Upward
Exhausted by mile upon mile
Even the fittest fell
They all had run so well
Back past the jaws of the Beast
Back from the Hills of Hell
All that was left of them
Left of the fell runners.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All of Maenclochog wondered.
Honor the volunteers
Honor the runners
Noble Beast Tamers.
