Family Race

The 3K Family Race is perfect for those looking to embrace the fun and excitement of trail running, without committing to the longer distances. Entry is just £5 for juniors and £14 for adults. You can also purchase a group ticket for 4 people at just £40.

The 3K course includes some challenging ascends and descends and is not recommended for all under 11’s. Less competent runners can take part in the shorter, less challenging 1500m race starting minutes after the 3K.

Entry includes a unique wooden commemorative medal and access into the Royal Welsh Spring Festival.

Toddler Trail

The 3K course includes a steep hill. We recommend the Toddler Trail, which is free of charge and on a flat circuit around the showground, for the youngest of competitors.

Children will also be able to get involved with a come and try pentathlon of athletic events including long jump, show, step hurdles, speed bounce and sprint. Perfect for introducing young children to the sport in a relaxed but fun setting!
