Trekfest – The Beacons 2017

Welcome to TrekFest – The Peaks 2017

A tough trekking challenge for even tougher trekkers!

Welcome to TrekFest – one of the toughest charity treks in the UK, with two different challenge routes to choose from in 2017. The challenges take place in The Brecon Beacons.  There is also a Trek in The Peak District in September 2017 – see our Events page for further details

TrekFest grows every year and has doubled in size since its humble beginnings. We have allocated more places than ever before, but they are already filling fast, so if you want to be one of the intrepid trekkers taking part you need to register now.

The Beacons –  The Brecon Beacons National Park is a mountain range that runs through the centre of South Wales, renowned for its inspiring and open scenery. The Beacons is also the training ground of the SAS – as you can imagine the routes will provide you with testing climbs, steep descents and challenging terrain. Both the 25km and 50km routes will summit one of the highest peaks in South Wales, the famous Pen y Fan (886m), it will be a challenging adventure but once you make it to the top you’ll discover sensational views of the Brecon Beacons, with its rolling mountains and hills, stretching as far as the eye can see.
