April and May events for Up and Under
After Easter is a busy time for us and this year we are involved with a number of great happenings around South Wales:
Pentyrch Hill Race 2017 - evening of 25th April
We've sponsored the Pentyrch Hill Race for over 30 years and regularly have staff entered into the race which takes place only 3 miles away from M4 junctions 32 and 34 just outside Cardiff. Come and join us for this BM category fell race which is 11km with 488m of ascent, 8 km's of which are off road in beautiful countryside. Registration only £5 entry on the day at Pentyrch Rugby Club at 6:30pm.
You can get an idea of this fun evening from our YouTube Channel of 2016s race https://youtu.be/x9cDI_EyGrI, 2014's race https://youtu.be/4IO4R4S79z4 and 2013's race https://youtu.be/xP8PJmo-h0Q. See if you can spot our Dave, Norman, Chris, George and Claire and if you're lucky you might be in this years film.
Run, Walk, Crawl - Pembrokeshire Coastal 100 Ultra and 3 Day Stage Race
Pembrokeshire 100 mile race on the 28th-30th April is a challenging ultra-race along the
stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from Dale, just outside Milford
Haven to St Dogmaels, Cardigan. The
Pembrokeshire Stage Race follows the same route as the Pembrokeshire
100, but is split into 3 single stage sections with an overnight camp
between each section. Camping is at Newgale Beach and Strumble Head which has a wood-fired hot tub to soak aching legs!
Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a designated national trail and is widely
regarded as the most breathtaking coastline in Britain from rugged
cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding
estuaries. This 100 mile race represents a formidable physical challenge
set against a rugged, beautiful backdrop. Both routes start in Milford Haven and follow the Pembrokeshire Coast Path to the finish in Cardigan. Up and Under supported by Ultimate Direction, Injinji and Guidetti hope to have a shop presence at the start and finish of both races and at the overnight camps all being well and will be providing prizes.
