About this event

Brought to you by the team at Dare2Run, The Dare12 is Wales’ first continuous looped 12 hour ultra-marathon, taking you through some of the most picturesque trails in South Wales.

Also now hosting the Dare 8k trail - and the 21k trail which are sinlge lap races - just out and back, which we are sure to see past trail course records crumble.

The event is held in the formidable grounds of the Dare Valley , backing on to the beautiful Brecon Beacons. When it comes to trail running Wales has so much to offer!

For the Dare12 - you'll be entering as an individual or in teams of up to 8 people, and you’ll be aiming to complete as many laps as possible of the 8km multi-terrain track in the 8am – 8pm 12 hour challenge.

For the sinlge lap races (8k or 21k), runners will line up at midday, and test their pace against other middle distance runners in a race against the clock. Fastest lap time in each category wins. You can also, enter in multiple races, by entering in the 21k, the 8k and the Dare12 - Who Dares Wins.

With each race starting and finishing in the runners HQ (runners & supporters festival), the vibe will be electric – live music, gourmet street food & popup bars serving craft ales and ciders and supporters lining the entire route to cheer you on.

Whether you’re aiming to run one lap as part of a team, or have your heart fixed on setting the breaking the course record as a solo, this is an event not to be missed. places are limited, so get your teams ready, enter now to secure your place!
