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.

COVID-19 - the club recommends that members and organisers of club races adhere to the guidelines set out by the Government and the NHS

Due to COVID-19, all organised club races are off until government advice changes. We are informally helping each other find ways to keep fit, healthy and motivated through our Facebook training group and (members only) socially distanced runs. Everything below applies to when times are normal.

We train together once or twice a week, and are a force to be reckoned with at races in South Wales and beyond (are we sure about this? Ed.).

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"!
