Newsletter - Wye One Way 50 & Wye Valley Trail Marathon

Hopefully all competitors in either the The Wye One Way 50 Ultra or The Wye Valley Trail Marathon received the news of the date change. The date for both events is the 12th October.

Accommodation option;

Race HQ Woodlands House will make an excellent centre for the weekend and two nights accommodation (Friday & Saturday) can be booked at a total cost of £35. Why not make a weekend of it and include a recovery walk in the local Black Mountains, a boat trip down the River Wye or maybe a visit to local towns Brecon or Hay on Wye, all within 5 to 30 mins of HQ.

Transport Options;

If you have not already we would urge you to seriously consider your transport plans to the start of the event. What makes both events different from most is the liner course and the sense of a journey this provides. The organised transport options will leave Woodlands House (the finish) in good time to get you to the start. The cost is probably less than the cost of petrol and removes all of the logistical challenge. Transport can be booked here for both events. The coaches for the Ultra will leave Woodlands House at 06:00 for a 07:30 start. The coach for the Trail Marathon will leave Woodlands House at 09:00 for a 10:00 start.

Registration is available as follows;

For the Ultra;

Fri evening, 18:30 to 21:00 at Woodlands House.
Sat morning, 05:00 to 05:45 at Woodlands House.
Sat morning, 06:00 to 07:00 at Llangurig Car Park (The Start)
Organised transport leaves Woodland House at 06:00.

For the Trail Marathon;

Fri evening, 18:30 to 21:00 at Woodlands House.
Sat morning, 09:00 to 09:45 at Llanwrthwl (The Start)
Organised transport leaves Woodland House at 09:00.

Series Points update;

The Wye One Way 50 Ultra is round 3 of 4 and will go a long to shaping the series competition this year. To qualify for a series ranking you must complete 3 of the 4 rounds or all four in which case your best 3 points totals of the series will count. Your points total is calculated based on your time relevant to everyone else racing on the day, plus bonus points for a podium finish. Series scores from the first two rounds can be found here.

Entries available;

Entries are still available for both the The Wye One Way 50 and Wye Valley Trail Marathon and can be booked here.

Please note entries for The Ultra Brecon 40 - Winter have surpassed the 200 limit, we have extended entries to allow for drop outs but will be closing entries soon. If you want to be on the startline don't hang around!
