Overview

The Beat The Beacons (BEAT) event first took place in September 2019 and replaced the Talybont Trial which had been running on an annual basis since 1978. The challenge walk which starts and finishes at the Henderson Hall in Talybont-on-Usk takes place in the beautiful area of the Brecon Beacons. There are 3 routes available, 22 miles, 15 miles, and 10 miles. The 22 mile Endurance route visits the highest points in the Brecon Beacons. The 15 mile Adventure route follows a similar path to the 22 mile route, but avoids the highest points. The 10 mile Taster route is a walk on lower elevation footpaths, designed for lesser experienced walkers, families, and children. Once again this year, for those who want to walk without the worry of navigation we are offering a walk guided by Brecon MRT team members on the Adventure Route.
