Final preparations for the 2017 Dragon's Back

by Press Release
Friday 19th May 2017
 
 
At 7am on Monday 232 competitors from 24 nations will leave Conwy Castle on the Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race. 
 
5 days of unimaginably tough terrain, consisting of 315km and 15,500m of ascent, await them. Staged only three times before, in 1992, 2012 and 2015, the Dragon’s Back Race has acquired near mythical status in the adventure racing and ultra-running community.  The race follows the spine of Wales from north to south.
 
Runners in this year’s race include defending champion Jim Mann, women’s winner of the Spine Race, Carol Morgan, Joe Faulkner, who’s completed every Dragon’s Back so far, Vassos Alexander from Radio and Jez Bragg, winner of the 2010 UTMB. 
 
The 2017 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race will start in the courtyard of Conwy Castle, after a performance by Maelgwn Male Voice Choir.  The runners will then race out along the ancient town walls of Conwy before heading up to the Carneddau, Glyders, Snowdon and beyond...
 

The public will be able follow the progress of the race thanks to live tracking via www.berghausdragonsbackrace.com, and the Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race team will be posting regular updates on social media throughout the event. Follow it at:
