Trailhead Get Jerky Devil’s Staircase

Ultra Trail Race | 4th April 2020 | Llanwrtyd Wells


30 miles through the Cambrian Mountains

A hellish 5,200ft of ascent & descent


When our MD, Arwyn Watkins, heard that Green Events were about to launch a brand new Trail race in his home town, he had to get involved!
The iconic Devil’s Staircases, located in the stunning Irfon Valley, is where trail race will take place… a piece of land that the Watkins’ forefathers have worked on for years.
The River Irfon, of which the route follows, even runs across the family farm!


The inaugural running of this challenge event will take place on April 4. 2020. The race distance will be 50 km (31 miles) and the total ascent and descent is 5,714ft (1741m). Most of the race will be off road with some short road sections including the hellish steep ascent (25%) of the iconic Devil’s staircase. The race will test endurance and stamina but will reward the runner with a fantastic and lasting memorable experience.

The race will start and finish in the centre of Llanwrtyd and the route will also include: the old Drovers road that runs to the ford at Abergwesyn; the beautiful and stunning Abergwesyn valley; Soar y Mynydd the most isolated chapel in Wales; the head of the spectacular dam at Llyn Brianne, and the 11th century St David’s Church

The course will be marshalled and waymarked with water points and two feed stations providing cold and hot drinks, bananas, cakes and sweets. At the finish there will be Welsh cawl and a vegetarian alternative on offer. Each runner will receive a unique devil medal and there will be prizes for the first three male and female runners.

Entry fee is £45.00 and includes a race t-shirt.
