Rebellion 135 mile Ultra Marathon

The Rebellion is a 135 mile (217 Km) Ultra Marathon in Mid Wales starting on 2nd of November 2018. The route is along the full length of Glyndŵr's Way National Trail with a total ascent of just over 25,000ft (7700m). The route takes you through some of the most beautiful and remote parts of Mid Wales. Starting in Knighton looping through Machynlleth and then finishing in Welshpool - the route is one of the most picturesque and challenging in the UK.

Shot

The Glyndŵr's Way National Trail is an unusual National Trail as it doesn’t follow any particular geographic features or any historic routes. It is named after Owain Glyndŵr who led a rebellion against the English and the last Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. The Glyndŵr’s Way is an arbitrary route merely linking a variety of towns and villages with Glyndŵr connections. This the reason for its unusual V shape.

The race starts at 7pm on Friday the 2nd November and has a 72 hour time limit to reach Welshpool (7pm on Monday the 5th November). Meaning competitors must average just 1.85 miles (3km) per hour to complete the race. There are 4 checkpoints on route that all competitors must pass through within a time limit. Each checkpoint is a community hall/leisure centre that is well stocked with food, hot drinks and water for competitors to recharge and re-supply. There will also be floor space at each checkpoint for competitors to sleep if they so wish. Competitors can use drop bags, accessible at each checkpoint.

Every competitor is given a GPS tracker so we can see where you are at all times during the race and your family and friends can watch your progress online. The GPS tracker is also equipped with a SOS button, so if you do have a problem we can find you. The event has full medical support supplied by Trail Med (https://www.trailmed.co.uk/). TrailMed have a wealth of experience supporting races of this kind and consist of paramedics and consultant doctors.

If you want or need to withdraw from the event after starting, we will transport you to your nearest checkpoint where you can arrange your own transport home from there.

Countryside Code

The route of the race goes through farm land, farms, private forests and private estates. As such the countryside code must be followed at all times. You are responsible for the opening and closing of gates during the race.
