New for 2024: The Wyedean Ultra. To run alongside our Wyedean Relay event.
This is suitable for beginners to Ultra Running as well as experienced Ultra Runners.

A beautiful route along the river Wye, on Offas Dyke and the Wye Valley Walk.

Our Wyedean Relay has run now for 5 years. It sees 300+ runners taking part.
In recent years there has been a call for individuals to run the entire distance - so this year we are setting up the Wyedean 'ultra' for individuals who want to do just that.

At what would be the end of each leg of the relay there will be a feed station (checkpoint) - food/drinks etc and a timing poiint.
All of these checkpoints are at convenient places with road access, so your own supporters/ helpers can gain access if needed.
The way is well marked with national footpath signs.

Along the way you will encounter and probably overtake the relay event that is going on at the same time. The ultra is, however, a completely separate event with separate marshals and timing. We expect a good atmosphere and support from the relay teams as you progress along the route as they will be gathering to start their leg and support friends finishing other legs. 

For route maps and information of each section just go to the Wyedean Relay. The route is exactly the same. 

We are in the process of producing .gpx files for you to download.
Transport to the start from finish (or from finish back to start) is not included but we will endeavour to organise shares amongst competitors. Similarly, if you need to drop out we will try to organise transport to a convenient place for you. 

Sorry - no 4 legged friends allowed on this - some of the trails go through farmland with livestock.
