Trekfest - Brecon Beacons
6th July 2019

We are really excited about launching our new Challenge Event: Trekfest!

What is Trekfest?

Trekfest is an event organised by Global Adventures, it's a 25km or 50km route around the stunning Brecon Beacons. 

The event kicks off at the TrekFest Village, where you will join hundreds of other trekkers and find plenty of facilities for over the weekend: toilets, showers, food and drink, even camping plots and car parking! Enjoy a delicious BBQ and a drink at the TrekFest bar on the Friday evening before the event or enjoy a celebratory drink once you have crossed the finish line. Bring your friends and family along for support and make a weekend of it!

The route:

Trekking through the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales, you’ll discover breathtaking landscapes, stunning hills and tranquil reservoirs along the way. You’ll also reach the summit of the Brecon Beacons’ highest peak, Pen Y Fan (886m) on both the 25km and 50km routes, where you’ll witness beautiful views stretching as far as the eye can see. This distinctive flat-topped peak won’t just be the highlight of your adventure – it’s also the highest point in South Wales!

The challenge:

Suitable for beginner trekkers and expert trail runners alike, taking on TrekFest is by no means a walk in the park - it’s tough and will test you both physically and mentally, pushing your boundaries like never before. With the right training and preparation however, it is definitely achievable - as thousands of trekkers over the years will testify. Our incredible TrekFest conquerors tell us it’s truly life-changing and proves that anything is possible, and the sense of achievement you’ll feel as you cross that finish line is truly indescribable! Whether you’re a solo trekker or getting your friends, family or colleagues together as a team, the TrekFest crew will be supporting you every step of the way.

Global Adventures take care of all the details - route marking, marshalled and fully stocked checkpoints, medical support, food and refreshments along the route – allowing you to focus on the challenge ahead and keep putting one foot in front of the other until you cross the finish line.

Fundraising:

Herriot Hospice Homecare will support you with achieving your fundraising goals and will provide you with a Herriot Hospice t-shirt, sponsorship form, fundraising materials and will be on hand for fundraising hints and tips!
