ABOUT THE SOUTH WALES 100
The SW100 is a 105mile ultra-trail footrace starting and finishing in Cardiff, crossing the South Wales Valleys and the Brecon Beacons! It is a demanding test of endurance over varied and challenging terrain and is only suitable for experienced and competent ultra-trail runners. The route has approximately 6400 meters of ascent and is over 90% on trails. This is a tough course, with only 25% of participants completing the course in 2016! It is a UTMB qualifying race eligible for 6 UTMB pionts.There is also the SW50 which is the second half of the SW100 route.
The SW100 course started at 1900 on Friday 23rd June 2017. The SW50 started at 1030 on Saturday 24th June 2017.
New for 2017 we have a SW100 Walkers/non-competitive start time which starts at 1500 on Friday with an overall cut off time of 44 hours.
"that race is simply "insane" and must be one of the hardest 100 milers in Europe if not further afield".
