Entry fee is £15 for the main ‘Preseli Beast’ race, and £12 for the ‘Beast Bach’ race. For that you get a ‘Preseli Beast’ or ‘Beast Bach’ T-shirt, Preseli Beast slate coaster, car sticker, goodie bag, soup, cake, tea/coffee, a chance at winning a spot prize, or one of 46, yes 46, main prizes if you’re fast enough in one of the many age categories which are listed below! Yes, all that!!!! Most of all though, a chance to run on unfamiliar ground over an amazing route with some fabulous views. Monies raised this year go towards Maenclochog Community Hall. You may enter on the day, but we doubt that we’ll have a T-shirt, or slate coaster for you, as these are being ordered specially.
Now for the supporters that make this event possible!
Some amazing news, in that we have sponsorship from Valero to help fund T-shirts, and other items to help with the organisation for the day. This is what they had to say;
“Valero is delighted to sponsor the inaugural ‘Preseli Beast’ running event. Valero is committed to both our local communities and promoting sport, and ‘Preseli Beast’ is a fulfilment of both those aims. Not only does it promise to provide a tremendous sporting challenge to those taking part, but it also offers a real reward for community life in the north of our county. Valero wishes the best of luck to all those involved.”
The post race menu of soup, cake, tea and coffee is kindly prepared and supplied by the excellent- Ian Eynon & team @ Tegfan Caterers, Maenclochog.
