The legendary Dragon's Back Race follows the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy Castle to Carreg Cennen Castle. This incredible five-day journey is approximately 300 kilometres long with 17,000 metres of ascent across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. It is not a trail race.
The original Dragon's Back Race happened in September 1992 and ever since, it has been whispered about with a mix of awe and trepidation. Its reputation had reached legendary status with fell, mountain and ultra runners the World over by September 2012 when the second Dragon's Back Race happened.
