25k route

We leave the Event Village in the opposite direction to the other route and spend some time walking on country roads following sections of the Three Rivers Ride path. After approximately 9 km we make our ascent to Pen Y Fan.

From the checkpoint, we head up onto the ridge of Cefn Cwm Llwch and we soon summit Pen Y Fan where we momentarily join other routes before beginning our ascent under the Corn Du ridge.

As we descend into the valley we get views of the lake below us and upon reaching it we follow the valley before our final leg back on country roads to the Event Village.

50k route

We leave the Event Village and spend some time on the Taff Trail next to the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. We walk along the canal until we enter Talybont Forest followed by the Taf Fechan Forest.

As we exit the forest we begin our ascent to Fan y Big. After summiting there, we ascend a bit further to summit Pen y Fan.

From here, we will descend and then re-join the Taff Trail. Our route back will be on country roads on and off the Taff Trail before entering Brecon and back along the canal to the Event Village.
