Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival
Saturday 18th May 2019
Incorporated into the Royal Welsh Smallholding & Countryside Festival, the Royal Welsh Trail Running Festival has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most popular trail running events, offering a series of thrilling and scenic races in the heart of Mid-Wales.
The event is delivered by Run 4 Wales – the mass participation events team behind races like the Cardiff Half Marathon.
The 10K trail course starts and finishes in the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells and take in valleys, fields, woodland tracks and stunning forestry. The 3K Trail, Family Mile and Toddler Trail, offer something for all ages and abilities.
The race has the unique appeal of major event amenities (race pack postage, chip timing, smartphone live-tracking for spectators, ample free parking, an array of street food offerings, trade stalls and live entertainment) coupled with remote and unspoiled trails – usually out of bounds to the public.
Race entry fees include a bespoke unique commemorative medal, technical finishers t-shirt (for 10K runners) and free entry into the Royal Welsh Smallholding & Countryside Festival – a celebration of rural life with entertainment, workshops, livestock, trade stands and a street food quarter – the perfect place to unwind after running the trails.
Camping Packages are available for those wanting to make a weekend of it!
We are indebted to the kind landowners and farmers who grant permission for the race to take place on their land and wish to thank them for their ongoing support – Penmaenau, Fforddlas Cwmbach, Cefn Drys and Cwm Sheppard.
