Route A- RED – 45 km

This route takes in part of the historic beer track said to be the route over which the Prior’s Black Canons transported ale to sell in Longtown and beyond so if you feel up for the extra challenge this is the one for you! This year route initially heads South and then turns back North to cross Pen y Gadair Fawr and Waun Fach before heading off to Gospel Pass.

Route B – Blue – 30 km

This route also climbs the historic beer track to join Offa’s Dyke. Following the A route you will continue to Capel-y-Finn and the re-join Offa’s Dyke.

Route C – Green -17km

This route is somewhat shorter and will also start by climbing up to Offa’s Dyke before circling back to Llanthony from the west. To meet this challenge you will need good navigation and hill skills. It has all the characteristics of a mountain expedition, crossing peaks and valleys. Walkers describing themselves as ‘fit’ take an average of 12 hours to complete the A route.
