The original Dragon’s Back Race™ happened just once in September 1992… Ever since, the race has been whispered about with a mix of awe and trepidation and its growing reputation has reached legendary status with fell, mountain and ultra runners the World over.

Many consider the Dragon’s Back Race™ to be the toughest mountain running event ever organised. Certainly, this is not a challenge for the faint hearted.

September 2012 is the 20th anniversary of the original race and once again the Dragon will be breathing fire on the mountains of Wales!

Closely following the original route, the race will start at Conwy Castle in the north and trace the mountainous spine of Wales southwards, over 5 days with approximately 220 miles and 50,000 feet of ascent, to finish at Carreg Cennen Castle. Pre-marked waterproof maps will be provided for each day of racing.
