Staged only five times, the Dragon’s Back Race® has acquired near mythical status in the adventure racing and running community. The event was first held in 1992.
Already regarded as the world’s toughest mountain race, this next Dragon’s Back Race® has been extended from five to six days, increasing the distance covered from 315km to ~380km, and height climbed from 15,500m to ~17,400m. As usual, the event will start at Conwy Castle, but in 2021, competitors will get to embark on an even longer journey than before, along the whole spine of Wales, including a traverse of the Brecon Beacons to finish in the grounds of Cardiff Castle.
We look forward to seeing you there,
