The Summer Rebellion is a 135 mile (217 Km) Ultra Marathon in Mid Wales starting on 16th of May 2019 and is the Summer version of the popular winter Rebellion 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.
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.Have a look at the schedule for more info.
The event is fully catered, have a look at the catering page for more info.
