The Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race

The legendary Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race follows the mountainous spine of Wales from north to south. 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 mixture 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. With a third race in 2015, the Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race is respected internationally for both its bulletproof organisation and ‘toughest race’ status.

The 2017 course will be similar, but not identical, to the 2015 route. The route takes its inspiration from the original 1992 Dragon’s Back Race. The optimum route is approximately 300km with 16,000m of height gain across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. It is not a trail race! It is an incredible journey

The Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race is the toughest 5-day mountain running race in the world.
