The Loop Ultra



All ages

  • 32 miles trail running + 4862 ft ascent


The Loop Ultra 32 Mile trail event is a great challenge amongst some spectacular, harsh but stimulating trails within the remote and less explored Cambrian Mountains of Mid Wales. Attracting runners from the elite to the ultra beginner, you will not be disappointed. Please note that due to the unique wild and natural location, with its emphasis on sustainability, this is an exclusive event that we will cap at 100 runners (plus friends and family) The event will be a self-navigation challenge with the added support of trackers and back runners. Generous cut off time of 12 hours will ensure that you can conquer The Loop. Starting at Camp Plas, a nature retreat near the village of Dolanog (near Welshpool) deep in the heart of the Cambrian mountains. The Loop will take in trails, forest tracks, ancient paths, en route to stunning Lake Vrynwy, often skirting the Glyndwr Way, you will be immersed in outstanding views across to the Shropshire Hills and southern Snowdonia. . Red kites will be your companions besides an abundance of wildlife, and as the end of summer becomes autumn, the colours will be spectacular. This is a canicross friendly event. Dogs must be at least 12 months of age, fit to run and kept on the lead at all times. Owners take full responsibility for their dogs both at headquarters and on the route. Unfortunately, due to the added benefit of having a bit of extra ‘pull’ from your four-legged friend, we cannot allocate trophies to any canicross participants. We are proud to have been invited by Camp Plas to base this inaugural event at their wonderful and unique location. The weekend will offer exclusive camping, Field Bell Tents, log cabins, with full amenities including toilets and showers. This is an eco-friendly site within a small working farmstead, right by the River Vrynwy for wild bathing. We look forward to seeing you there!
