The third edition of this increasingly popular trail race around private grounds of the Idyllic Merthyr Mawr Estate outside Bridgend.
The event village and start/finish of all the events is in front of the splendid 18th Century Georgian Merthyr Mawr House, and the route takes in the iconic features of the 90 acre Estate; rolling landscapes, thatched cottage village, ancient woodlands, castles, down the infamous Big Dipper Sand Dune and a River Ogmore crossing near the finish, are all incorporated into the 7.3 mile run route, which encompasses a variety of underfoot conditions.
Organised by the local running club Bridgend AC and the McClaggan family, owners of the Merthyr Mawr Estate, the event also has supporting Childrens Races and a Family Fun Run plus live music (weather pending!), from the event village in front of Merthyr Mawr House.
There is ample free nearby car parking, and feel free to bring a tent for the day, there is also overnight camping available nearby if you wish to make a weekend of it.
