The Grim Reaper fell race is set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in an outstanding location, based at Llangors multi activity centre. The idea being a tough, short, winter hill race for those that love descending. The race was formed around the descent, which gives you a spectacular view of Llangors lake as you make your way from the trig. Please be aware this is a tough, short race, AS meaning short, hard! The race is all on open fell (the start and finish on private land which will be marked) with typical hazards such as mud, rocks, streams, and barbed-wire fences. Also some navigational choices and two check points. The weather can be a challenge and also differ from the start to the top. Please bring full kit as explained below. If you haven’t got appropriate kit you cannot race. I recommend good grippy fell-running shoes.
The family have kindly allowed us to use their facilities - please buy refreshments and respect their centre by removing muddy trainers before entering. Look forward to seeing you.
