Dragon Challenge 2

Sat 8th Jun 2019


The Welsh Castles 2019 will be the weekend of 8th & 9th June 2019

Welcome to The Castles, a 2 day, 20 stage, 211 mile staggered relay race, held mostly on road but with many hills and mountains on route from Caernarfon to Cardiff with an overnight stay in Newtown, organised by Les Croupiers Running Club Cardiff.

Date of the 37th Welsh Castles Relay is 8-9 June 2019.

Teams compete in one of four categories – Open, Ladies, Vets and Business House. Races within races are also a key feature as individuals try to bag individual stage wins and teams battle it out for both the overall category awards and the special mountain stage prizes.  There are six mountain stages in all and three team mountain stages prizes: the Kings (Open), Queens (Ladies) and Monarchs (Vets). 

If you'd like to be involved in the Welsh Castles Relay for 2019 please get the following dates into your diaries :
Friday 7th June travel
8th June 10 stages Caernarfon to Newtown
Sunday 9th June 10 stages Newtown to Cardiff & travel back
You don't have to be available (and in Wales) for all three days and some folks tailor their time/travel/race leg to suit their own plans and availability.  That said it is generally much more fun to muck in and be part of the team vibe for the whole weekend.

If you are interested in taking part and/or have any questions please contact George Belfield (wcr@wadac.org.uk) and watch out for updates.
