About the Event

Info for Riders

Both routes start and finish at Berrington Hall then head west south west towards Hay-on-Wye on the open, flat, country lanes via Bredwardine. Course markers will be black arrows or writing on luminous yellow background. Everyone will be on the same course until the 1st split and 1st feedstation at the toll bridge At Whitney-on-Wye (don't worry, payment has been sorted)! The short course split is 100m after the feedstation - a sharp right turn and then the climbing starts! Up and over to Brilley, Newchurch and Gladestry. The longer course will follow the course of the river, to Hay-on-Wye and beyond. At Glanyrafon the climbing starts, following the route to the Castle of Pain! also known as Painscastle - dig deep, it's a belter of a climb! Both courses rejoin further on at the second feedstation at Evenjobb before the second round of climbing starts for both courses up and along the Welsh Border on Stonewall Hill. The return leg is rolling and quick, via Lingen, Mortimer Cross and Cock Gate.
