JULY 1ST 2023 – ENTER NOW
The PIGUM 2023 – A 30 mile adventure around the Gateway to Wales (y Porth i Gymru).

Join us for a heart pounding 30 mile ultra marathon around the mountain peaks and trails of Abergavenny, with 5,000 feet of elevation this little beauty will live long in the memory and in the legs.

Abergavenny – the gateway to Wales

The market town of Abergavenny will play host to the PIGUM. A town steeped in history with some of the most well loved mountains in Wales, let alone the UK.

Point of interest

The Sugar Loaf mountain dominates the skyline of the surrounding countryside and provides a spectacular backdrop to the PIGUM.

Peering between the ridges of the Llanwenarth, Deri and Rholben hills, the Sugar Loaf is one of the highest peaks in the heart of the Black Mountains. It stands at 1,955 feet high and offers glorious panoramic views across south Wales, the Brecon Beacons, and into south-west England.

Yep, you’ve guessed it – you go right over it! Join us for the PIGUM in 2023 and run with Pegasus!

Time Limits and Checkpoints –

Please note we do not have time limits. Like we’ve stated previously, you’ve trained and paid to enter this race… We owe it to each Athlete to provide the help, support and time to get all to the Finish Line. Although we want our Athlete’s to challenge themselves, we don’t believe you have to run your heart out to do so. Take in the scenery, have a chat with a local, but most of all… Enjoy the trek!

In terms of Checkpoints, there will be 3 along the route. They will be fully manned and stocked with; snacks, fresh fruit, drinks, music and the odd beer. Please let us know of any special dietary requirements, and we will accommodate accordingly.

The next time you will hear from us (directly) will be in the form of an email 6 weeks before your chosen event, then another email 4 weeks before the event and a final email 2 weeks before the event.

Alas that isn’t the last communication – please keep an eye on your mobile for a phone call from our Race Director a couple of days before the event is due to take place – don’t worry you haven’t done anything wrong – it’s a peace of mind call to make sure you are ready for the big day!
