One of the UK’s fastest growing trail running events is back, with a host of exciting changes. Run half-marathon, 10km or 3km in the heart of mid Wales.
The Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival, which has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s largest trail running events, returns for 2018 on Saturday 19 May - with a host of exciting changes.
Incorporated into the Royal Welsh Spring Festival in Builth Wells, the event offers stunning half marathon, 10km and 3km trail races that take in valleys, fields, woodland tracks and stunning forestry.
The event is organised by Run 4 Wales, the team behind the Cardiff Half Marathon, Newport Wales Marathon and Velothon, Wales who have confirmed a number of exciting developments. This year, chip timing, a new live-tracking smartphone app for spectators, registration pack postage, camping packages and a revamped runners village are all being introduced as numbers continue to grow.
As part of the Royal Welsh Spring Festival, which attracts 20,000 visitors annually – the race has the unique appeal of major event amenities (ample parking, an array of street food offerings, trade stalls and live entertainment) coupled with remote and unspoiled trails – usually out of bounds to the public.
Entries start from just £15 and include a technical event tee, unique commemorative wooden finishers medal, free entry into the Royal Welsh Spring Festival and goodies from event partners like Castell Howell Foods, Wild Trail and Howies.
