The St Illtyds Ultra Marathon is said to be the best Ultra Wales has to offer! According to previous finishers! A race you will never forget!

A 50KM race across multi terrain and spectacular scenery including canals, woodlands, hills and rivers, taking in scenery such as Bluebell encrusted gems, old ruins and crossing canals and rivers.

Great for a first ultra whilst also offering a true challenge for seasoned ultra runners with amazing support from 5 fully stocked aid stations, more like picnic feasts than aid stations! Fully marked course making navigation as easy as it can be. This is an amazing route that really showcases rural wales at its best.

What you can expect at our event!

  • Buffet Filled Checkpoints

  • A Great Atmosphere

  • Friendly support along the route

  • An epic finishers medal

  • The best Finishers T-shirt!

  • And a whole lot more!

A really well arranged event on a challenging course, I look forward to returning and running again next year!  The course was very well marked throughout, check-points fully stocked with lots of goodies, friendly and professional organisers, and great interactions with the other runners throughout the day. This was my first ultra, and the great experience I had at the race has convinced me that ultra races is something I will want to pursue going forward definitely. Thank you for arranging this.

I guess the best people to know what runners really want are runners themselves!! What an amazing​ event, well organised, with so much hard work put in. Can’t believe it was Nath and Tori’s first organised event, I really can’t see much room for improvement although I have been promised next year there will be Donuts, lol. Give yourself a pat on the back guys, you just pulled an great race out if the bag!
