Take on this epic dual-discipline challenge and help make a short life a full life 

tread and trail cwm gwdi
Tread and Trail is a testing BIKE and HIKE challenge, braving the great Brecon Beacon roads on two wheels and conquering the iconic Pen Y Fan on foot (via the lesser known and more dramatic Cwm Gwdi trail)!
Join the adventure and take on the 15 mile ULTIMATE challenge or the tougher 30 mile EXTREME challenge.
Our start point for this epic event is Brecon Leisure Centre; from there you will cycle the scenic roads of the Brecon Beacons to Pen Y Fan. You will then grab your walking boots and begin your hike to the peak. Once you’ve conquered the Cwm Gwdi trail you will be greeted with a hot meal to re-energise ready for your final ride back to the finish line at Brecon Leisure Centre.
This testing and unique dual-disciple challenge can be completed as an individual (teams are not required but you can of course take part with your friends, family and colleagues). We recommend that participants use road bikes for the cycling element of the event (although this is not compulsory) as the route is road-based rather than on trails.

Ultimate tread and trail challenge

A 10 mile cycle, followed by a 4 mile hike and a 5 mile cycle to complete the challenge.

The route of your challenge

Tread and Trail takes you on what we think is possibly the most dramatic way to get to the top of Pen Y Fan, the Cwm Gwdi trail. This energetic walk is one of the less familiar routes however is the toughest walking route in the Brecon Beacons! It's part of what makes Tread & Trail such an epic challenge!
