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 Adventure route follows a similar path to the 22 mile route, but avoids the highest points.

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

New this year, for those who want to walk without the worry of navigation we are offering a walk guided by Brecon MRT  team members on the Adventure Route.

B……Brecon Beacons
E……Endurance Route 22 miles
A….. Adventure Route 15 miles
T……Taster Route 10 miles

Full route details, checkpoints, and entry prices are available elsewhere on this website.

The event is organised by the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team supported by Newport Outdoor Group, and raises funds for the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team
