The Beat The Beacons (BEAT) event first took place in September 2019 and replaced the Talybont Trial which had been running on an annual basis since 1978.

The 2023 Beat The Beacons event will be held on Saturday 30th September.

The challenge walk which starts and finishes at the Henderson Hall in Talybont-on-Usk takes place in the beautiful area of the Brecon Beacons.

There are 3 routes available, 22 miles, 15 miles, and 10 miles.

The 22 mile Endurance route visits the highest points in the Brecon Beacons. The 15 mile Alternative route follows a similar path to the 22 mile route, but avoids the highest points.

The 10 mile Taster route is an optional led walk on lower elevation footpaths, designed for lesser experienced walkers, families, and children.

Full route details and checkpoints are available on this website https://www.beatthebeacons.com
