The legendary Berghaus 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 race took place.
The Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race™ is one of the hardest mountain races in the world.
The next race is scheduled for Monday 22nd – Friday 26th May 2017. Entries open Monday, 9th May 2016 at 9am (BST). If you are considering entering or just want to experience the awesome challenge offered by the Berghaus Dragon's Back Race™ we strongly recommend that you watch the 2015 race video shorts.
