Stories

Untitleddesign20211230T123045.725

2021 was my first time visiting the Brecon Beacons and I already cannot wait to go back! The TP race routes and beautiful scenery made for one unforgettable adventure, and I left feeling thankful for the ever so welcoming and friendly locals. I loved being immersed in the forest, passing waterfalls and having a birds eye view of the surroundings. It was such a peaceful setting, and provided a great backdrop for an awesome festival vibe!

Trail running has always been a form of complete escapism for me; it's exhilarating and challenging in equal measure but leaves you feeling accomplished and like you can tackle anything life throws your way!

Victoria Stears

The beautiful and formidable landscape of the Brecon Beacons, coupled with a relaxed yet vibrant festival atmosphere made for one of the best trail running events I have ever been to...and that was just the inaugural event...count me in for 2022!!

Tom Collins

From start to finish, spending time with the TP family in an amazing part of the UK - the weekend was awesome! From wild movie night under the stars, to racing in torrential rain - it was smiles all round and what an afterparty! Come & join the adventure in 2022.

Trail running makes me a happier person, connects me with a nature, which I really enjoy. I feel wild and free when I'm on my trails 🙃

Magda Kaminska

Untitleddesign20210220T122908.056

To me, trail running removes the playing field all together, it removes the boundaries that come from road running and allow you to feel a full sense of adventure and intimacy with the natural world. Going off the beaten path is where I feel alive, free and at my most inspired.
