Trailhead Get Jerky Devil’s Staircase

Ultra Trail Race | 2nd April 2022 | 9am | Llanwrtyd Wells


Can you outrun the Devil?

The Trailhead Get Jerky Devil’s Staircase Ultra Trail Race, which will tackle the steep ascent of the iconic Devil’s Staircase near Llanwrtyd Wells in Mid Wales, has been revived for 2nd April 2022, after being postponed due to the pandemic in 2020.

31.25 miles | Total ascent & descent of 5,361 ft 

Most of the race is off road with some short road sections including the “hellish” 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 in the centre of Llanwrtyd at 09:00 and finish in the same place.

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.


“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!”
