Race Guide
Trellech Beacon Dash

Date / Time
Sunday, November 3, 2019
Length 6.21 miles (10.0 km)
Description

The Trellech Beacon Dash was a brand new c.10km multi-terrain running race for 2017. Brought to you by Spirit of Monmouth Running Club with the Babington Centre (aka Trellech Village Hall), a registered charity.

When we say multi-terrain, we aren’t kidding! There is tarmac, forestry track, woodland trails and farmland. Trail shoes are strongly recommended as parts of the course could potentially be very muddy and waterlogged. Just like the Kymin Dash, the race starts on a hill! Much of the first two miles is uphill (though not as steep as the Kymin). The good news is that once you have reached the Trellech Beacon, the rest of the race is fairly flat or downhill. There will be a separate prize for the first man and lady to reach the Beacon – plus the glory of being crowned “King” or “Queen” of the Beacon. The race has about 400ft of ascent in total.

The other advantage of the uphill climb at the beginning is that (in good weather), there are lots of far-reaching views to enjoy. We don’t think there are many running races with views of the Brecon Beacons, the Malvern Hills, Monmouthshire AND the Wye Valley – even the Severn Bridge can be seen from the route! And of course the woodlands of Monmouthshire, through which the route runs, are stunning in late October.

There will be lots of marshals to help guide runners through the woodland and sweeper runners to ensure no-one is left behind. There will be a water station at approx 4 miles.

For all race participants, there will be refreshments at the Babington Centre after the race plus a little memento of the race. There will be prizes for King and Queen of the Beacon, Overall winners and age category winners.
