Round 3 of The Welsh Trail Running Series is not to far away now, as such a short newsletter to communicate some important information and considerations.
Start-line Logistics - Highest priority is travel logistics. What makes Round 3 very different to most events is the liner natural of the courses. Depending on the category you have entered you will start 50, 26, 10 miles approx. away from the finish and event HQ, this provides a real sense of a journey.
For this reason you need to consider how you will get to the start-line of your event. We do provide an optional transport option which will take you from Event HQ / Finish to the start of your event, the thinking being you leave your vehicle at the finish! Most people will take up this cost effective option, if you haven't already you need to book your place ASAP please use this link.
If you are not going with this option then you need to get yourself to the start of the event and ensure you have considered how you will get home from the finish!
Starts - The Ultra will start as before at Llangurig, GR908 798, Car Park. The Marathon will start as before at Llanwrthwl, GR974 638, Village Hall. The Trail will start from the Twmpath checkpoint, GR073 438, Road / Track junction.
Registration - As per the event website here. Please note coach leaving times and event start times as well (they are different for each event).
Food - Our struggle to find a regular caterer goes on, the accommodation kitchen (very well equipped) is available to competitors if you wish to organise some food. Failing that there are pub and take-away options within a short drive.
Accommodation - Beds still available, you can book yours here. Many of our regulars are staying, they are a great bunch, make a weekend of it and join the party!
Enter - There is still time to enter, there are 10, 26 and 50 mile options. Photos can be viewed here for an appreciation of the terrain and courses, they are stunning. You can still enter here.
See you soon.
The MCN Team.
