Een lange loop van Noord- naar Zuid-Wales die een fietsroute volgt. Het is dus geen trail, wel een lange loop met maar weinig ondersteuning van de organisatie.
Van de website:
'A 250 mile non-stop race from Holyhead to Cardiff Bay down the centre of Wales crossing several mountain ranges. Mostly on road, you will be virtually self sufficient which will make this an incredibly difficult challenge as you would come to expect from COCKBAIN EVENTS.
You will follow Sustrans cycle route 8 all the way, with the last 55 miles along the 'Taff Trail', making this possibly the longest non-stop road ultra in the UK.
As will all our events this will be no-nonsense, basic and low key designed to push you to your limits'.

How hard will it be?
Running for 250 miles alone is a tough enough feat, but 250 miles on mainly roads will be painful. In addition, there are some big climbs along some of the route of 500metre+ elevation.
The race itself will be virtually self sufficient. We will supply you with WATER ONLY at checkpoints.
The checkpoints will be approximately every 25 miles.
You will be allowed access to your bag (1x bag per runner) every 50 miles and shops and pubs are allowed.
There will be little to no shelter at checkpoints, so you must be prepared for bad weather and willing to 'rough it'
A time limit will be set of around 88-90 hours TBA meaning that you can complete the challenge IF you keep moving at around 2.9 mph. A halfway time limit will also be strictly enforced (TBA)
You will be constantly monitored by tracker to ensure that you are following the correct route and GPX navigation is allowed.
No outside assistance is allowed.
No crews allowed.
No pacers allowed.
No sticks allowed.
However, friends and family can offer verbal support along the route.
If you drop out, you must arrange your own way home, however we will try to take you to the nearest train station when it is convenient, so please have a drop out plan.
Vehicle checkpoint support every 25 miles (water only)
Bag access every 50 miles
