Organiser's Description

The legendary multi-stage, ultra running journey down the spine of Wales. This is the world’s toughest mountain race.

6 Days, 380km - Average daily distance of 63km (that’s >1.5 marathons a day!) Be sure to pace yourself.

17,400m of ascent - That’s almost twice the height of Everest - enter only if you’re brave enough.

The 2021 edition of the legendary Dragon’s Back Race® will mark a step change in the evolution of the event as organisers add a sixth day to the race, which will see the race finish at the iconic Cardiff Castle.
