The Rebellion

The Rebellion


The Rebellion is a 135 mile (217 Km) Ultra Marathon in Mid Wales starting on 3rd of November 2017. The route is along the full length of Glyndwr's Way National Trail with a total ascent of just over 25,000ft (7700m). The route takes you through some of the most beautiful and remote parts of Mid Wales. Starting in Knighton looping through Machynlleth and then finishing in Welshpool - the route is one of the most picturesque and challenging in the UK.

The race starts at 7pm on Friday the 3rd November and has a 72 hour time limit to reach Welshpool (7pm on Monday the 6th November). Meaning competitors must average just 1.85 miles (3km) per hour to complete the race. There are 4 checkpoints on route that all competitors must pass through within a time limit. Each checkpoint is a community hall/leisure centre that is well stocked with food, hot drinks and water for competitors to recharge and re-supply. There will also be floor space at each checkpoint for competitors to sleep if they so wish. Competitors can use drop bags, accessible at each checkpoint.

Every competitor is given a GPS tracker so we can see where you are at all times during the race and your family and friends can watch your progress online. The GPS tracker is also equipped with a SOS button, so if you do have a problem we can find you. The event has full medical support supplied by Event Medical Group ( EMG have a wealth of experience supporting races of this kind and consist of paramedics and consultant doctors.

If you want or need to withdraw from the event after starting, we will transport you to your nearest checkpoint where you can arrange your own transport home from there.
