The Dare 12

Brought to you by the team at Dare2Run, The Dare12 is Wales’ first continuous looped 12 hour ultra-marathon, taking you through some of the most picturesque trails in South Wales. The event is held in the formidable grounds of the Dare Valley, backing on to the beautiful Brecon Beacons. When it comes to trail running Wales has so much to offer!

Entering as an individual or in teams of up to 8, you’ll be aiming to complete as many laps as possible of the 8km multi-terrain track in the 8am – 8pm 12 hour challenge. With each lap starting and finishing in the runners HQ (runners & supporters festival), the vibe will be electric – live music, gourmet street food & popup bars serving craft ales and ciders and supporters lining the entire route to cheer you on.

Whether you’re aiming to run one lap as part of a team, or have your heart fixed on breaking the course record as a solo, this is an event not to be missed. Entrance is limited, so enter now to secure your place!


  • Camping – For those with tents, is FREE and included in the entry fee. Camping access will be open from 5pm Friday 4th September until Sunday Morning 10am. There are limited tent spots, so ensure you select this when purchasing your entry place!
