Might Contain Nuts
Might Contain Nuts is the event organiser of the Welsh Ultra Running Series. Katie Roby, Merrell Pack Leader and winner of the Female Open Series 2013, took part in the first round this year last weekend and again, came first lady!
So, what exactly is the Welsh Ultra Running Series and how do you take part?
The series consists of 4 events, all taking place in the Brecon Beacons National Park, each time exploring different areas and some of the best trails of the park.
You can usually enter for three different levels like for example
ULTRA - 40 MILES / 2,800M ASCENT,
MARATHON - 26 MILES / 1,600M ASCENT,
TRAIL - 10 MILES / 700M ASCENT
The entry limit is 200 people, you can sign up right just before the event and it is between £15 – £50.
People at all levels can take part. You should however prepare and familiarise yourself with running ascending and descending techniques to prevent injury. Stay focused and take the right kit with you.
