SAVE THE DATES – SEPTEMBER 13th, 14th, 15th 2024

The first one sold out, so we’ve launched another… The Pegasus Experience 2024 – A weekend adventure in the heart of the beguiling Black Mountains

Join us for a weekend of adventure workshops, guest speakers and of course trail running. This isn’t a race. This is an experience. We’ll take care of everything for you! Including food and accommodation!

Don’t be fooled though. This weekend experience will make for great training with your Pegasus friends and family. Not one, but three trail runs / hikes will give you plenty of opportunity to stretch the legs in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.

Where will it take place? The Black Mountains – a place of myth, legend and bloody great running

This range of mountains are truly awesome and the routes we have planned will showcase some of the best views in the entire of the UK, let alone Wales. It’s where we live, it’s where we play, this is our back yard and we are going to show it to you over the course of a weekend. Highlights will include – Sugar Loaf Mountain, Dragons Back, Table Mountain, Grwyne Fawr, Mynydd Du Forest and a sprinkling of local view points.

Point of interest – Dragons Back Circular

Wild ponies roam the hills, livestock graze the land and a dragon lays sleeping beneath your feet – ladies and gentlemen we give you the Dragons Back of the Black Mountains. This circular route takes you over the ups and downs of this legendary ridge line with a summit of the second highest mountain in southern Britain and immense views of the Bannau Brycheiniog.

Now we know you will need a little more information than that… Please keep reading.
