25km Challenge & 50km Challenge
This National Park is full of fabulous scenery, rolling countryside and impressive mountain ranges running through the centre of South Wales. With both routes summiting Pen-Y-Fan and the challenge being set in the SAS training grounds, this challenge will put your limits to the test!
The 50km Challenge
Leaving the Trekfest Village you will head along the Taff Trail aside the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal until you reach the Talybont & Taf Fechan Forests. You’ll then begin your ascent to Fan-Y-Big and continue your ascent up to the summit of Pen-Y-Fan where you’ll see some amazing views. From there, you’ll begin your decent and re-join the Taff Trail before entering the Brecon and continue along the canal to the finish line!
The 25km Challenge
Leaving the Trekfest Village, you will head along the country roads and follow sections of the Three Rivers Ride path and then start your ascent up to Pen-Y-Fan where you’ll witness some stunning views before beginning your decent under the Corn Du Ridge. As you decent into the valley you’ll experience views of Llyn Cwm Llwch below. You’ll then follow the valley to the final stretch along the country roads onto the finish line!
