Welcome to the Dragon’s Back Race™
The legendary Dragon’s Back Race™ follows the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy Castle to Carreg Cennen Castle. This incredible 5-day journey is approximately 300 kilometres long with 16,000 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.
The Dragon’s Back Race™ is one of the hardest mountain races in the World.
The next race is provisionally set for Monday 22nd – Friday 26th May 2017. If you are considering entering or just want to experience the awesome challenge offered by the Dragon's Back Race™ we strongly recommend that you watch the multi award winning film of the 2012 race.
