The Route
Both routes start and finish in Brecon at our Trekfest Village.  There are a host of facilities available at the village – hot food, toilets, camping plots – we encourage all walkers to come down with tents, caravans or mobile homes and make a weekend of it!

From the TrekFest Village both routes will take walkers across the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and South Wales – Pen y Fan (886m), Corn Du (873m), Cribyn (795m) and Fan y Big (719m).  From low lying trails to high mountain passes, the TrekFest routes are as stunning, as they are challenging.

TakTrekfest 3ing part
TrekFest is designed to be both a team event – whether this from the workplace, family or friends or your local sport clubor for individuals looking for a personal challenge.  Whether you take part as a team or individual, we’ll support you every step of the way.

Individuals – if you want to join us but haven’t conjured up a team, we will support you every step of the way and ensure you get the right support to see you cross that finish line!  There will be groups of others individual walkers taking part to meet and share the experience with along the way!

Teams – take part and support each other! Many teams will be taking part – corporate teams supporting their charity of the year, groups of family and friends, sport clubs…anyone can form a TrekFest team!  Teams can either fundraise for the same charity together, or team members can choose their own charity. All team members must attempt the same course distance.
