Machen Mountain Race, 15:00 Monday 28th August 2017.
Please note - as of March 2017 there is considerable tree felling activity on the downhill section of the race to combat the endemic Larch disease - we are trying to determine whether the route will be clear by August and what alternative downhill routes would be a good option.

Important Note: Although this race is normally held in good weather, entrants should wear footwear suitable for slippery underfoot conditions, this means trail or ideally fell shoes. The race director will assess conditions on the day and will if the weather dictates only permit runners to take part who have brought at least a windproof running jacket. If the weather on the day is exceptionally severe, windproof leggings may also be required.
This is the final race in MDC's inaugural midweek fell series
