Mynydd Du

Fell and Mountain Running Club

Mynydd Du is a fell running club based around the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons in South Wales, for runners who like racing and training on the hills.

We also have a junior section - the "Mini Dragons" - helping children and parents get out and have running fun.

We train together once or twice a week, and turn out in numbers at races in South Wales and beyond.

We organise a handful races - almost certainly the best in the calendar - find out more in the races section. And we run a ferociously-contested club championship.

We always enter teams for the national Fell and Mountain Relays, putting many of the "northern" fell running clubs to the sword, and having a jolly good time into the bargain.

Want to give it a go? Contact us or read how to join.

By the way, Mynydd Du is pronounced “munith dee” (with a soft "th") not "minid doo", but we don't mind too much as long as you don't call us "MDC"!
