Brecon Beast Notice Board

Subject : 2017 NEWS

19th January 2017

To all our Beast riders and supporters, we have to inform you that we will be having a year off organising the Brecon Beast event this year (2017). This will no doubt disappoint many of you, but I hope you can understand our circumstances why this is necessary. We are a very small organising group and during 2017 a few key members have had to take a step back to attend to personal, business and family commitments; to proceed without these key people would not guarantee that the event’s organisation would be to the standard required.

The event has raised almost £100,000 for local charities and good causes, so thank you all for supporting it and making this possible; you certainly have made a difference to all the charities that we have helped.

After a year off our batteries will be re-charged and we are confident that we will be raring to stage the event again in 2018.

Thanks all and very best wishes for all you mountain biking events for 2017.

Welcome to the Brecon Beast website

"Are you fit-enough, mean-enough, mad-enough or brave-enough to tackle the Beast of the Beacons?"

"Are you up for a mountain bike challenge that takes on some of the highest and best trails that Wales can offer?"

"If so, then the Brecon Beacons Beast is the mountain bike event that you've been looking for".

Brecon Beast Introduction

If taking on some of the toughest, highest and most scenic tracks and trails found in the Brecon Beacons is your choice of fun, then the Brecon Beacons Beast is the mountain bike enduro for you.

The Beast offers you a choice of a LONG and a SHORT route with the shorter route sharing the same course as the longer route for most of it's duration. The distances may vary from year to year. The choice is your's but either way, the event will put your biking skills and endurance to the test. 

Much of the route follows by-ways and bridleways across open mountainside but some sections, including forestry sections, cross private land which it is not possible to ride at other times of the year. To make it even more worthwhile for those taking on the challenge, all profits raised by the event's entry fees are donated to local charities - your efforts go to help others in need.

So if you think you're up to the challenge and want to support some fantastic causes, why not come and tackle the Beast.

"Give her a go - she'll tame you or beat you".
