Challenging

The Brecon Beacons offer some of the most stunning scenery in the Wales.  Starting out at Gilestone Farm in Talybot-on-Usk,  there are four distances on offer for this event. The Ultra Marathon, Full Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K routes all take in the scenic trail runs of Brecon. You can take it at your own pace and even bring your dog if you want to!

I need a place

We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.

Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, and select that you're fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Then let us know you've registered and we'll send you a free Teenage Cancer Trust running top along with a handy welcome pack filled with helpful fundraising ideas.

5 reasons to join our team

We could go on all day about why you should join our team, but that would be boring so we’ll keep hit short. Here are our top 5 reasons:

1. You’ll help young people with cancer.

2. You’ll receive an exclusive Teenage Cancer Trust running top.

3. You’ll have access to our incredible training zone.

4. You’ll get all the fundraising help you need to reach your goal.

5. You can talk to us. We’re here to support you.

How you can help young people

  • £30 could pay for an hour of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse, who will understand the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and specialise in the best treatment for the cancers that affect this age group.
  • £50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
  • £100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find our about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
  • £200 could pay for one of our Youth Support Coordinators to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments. 
  • £500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
