The "Cambrian Endurance Summer Series" is a self-supported 50km (31.5mile) long walk across the Cambrian Mountains from East to West over some challenging but scenic terrain. The event is classified as “hard” and in a high-endurance category.
The route starts at Trer'ddol (52.513N 3.975W / SN6607 9244) nr Borth in West Wales, and ends in the Town of Llanidloes (52.448N 3.514W / SN9537 8422) in the heart of Cambrian Mountains.
Participants may enter in either a "load-bearing (35lb/15.8kg)" or "clean-fatigue" category, be self-supported, navigate their own way over the course, and should aim to complete the course in under 12hours.
Our preference would be for participants to enter as a 3 or 4 Person Teams, which would enhance the challenge and competition. However, we will still gladly welcome individual participants who wish to test themselves as well.
A recommended itinerary of required equipment and rations will be provided in the Event Pack 48hrs prior to the Event. For those who require guidance or a refresher in Navigation and associated skills, a pre-event Navigation Day Course can be organised at the participant’s request.
The event will be fully supported from the Start to the Finish by experienced Event Marshals at Emergency Rendezvous points (ERVs - approximately every 2.5miles) and Check Points (CPs - approximates every 5miles).
All those who successful complete the event will receive the coveted event patch, a certificate, and be treated to a fully catered buffet style meal with refreshments prior to heading home.
