The Beacons (3-4th June 2017)

The Brecon Beacons National Park is a mountain range that runs through the centre of South Wales, renowned for its inspiring and open scenery. It is also the training ground of the SAS, so as you can imagine the routes will provide you with testing climbs, steep descents and challenging terrain! Both routes will summit one of the highest peaks in South Wales, the famous Pen Y Fan (886m), it will be a challenging adventure but once you make it to the top you will  discover sensational views of the Brecon Beacons, with its rolling mountains and hills, stretching as far as the eye can see.

The Peaks (2-3rd September 2017)

The Peak District is home to stunning scenery and more than lives up to its reputation as one of Britain’s most inspiring National Parks. Both routes start in the beautiful Hope Valley – the heart of the Peak District home to picturesque and ancient landscapes. The 25km route encompasses part of the enchanting Ladybower reservoir and the 50km route summits Kinder Scout – a moorland plateau that at 636m (2,087ft) is the highest point in the Peak District, Derbyshire and the East Midlands!
