Course highlights
Starting at Perth y Pia Llanbedr the route takes you straight up to the Black Mountain ridge- to scale the summit of Waun Fach the highest point in the Black Mountains. Leaving this behind you then follow the ridge to descend the Dragons Back taking in some spectacular views before heading down to your first Checkpoint at the base. Refuelled and energised you once again climb to the opposite Mynydd Troed. Following the ridge over Mynydd Llangorse you join parts of the Beacons Way and cross over to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Mararthon will split here while the Ultra will continue towards the summit of Pen y Fan the highest point in south Wales.
