The legendary Dragon’s Back Race™ returns next year for its third edition and Berghaus, Britain’s leading performance outdoor brand, will be the title sponsor of this iconic event. The Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race™ follows the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy Castle in the north, to Carreg Cennen Castle in the south. This incredible 5-day race is approximately 300 kilometres long with 17,000 metres of ascent across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain.
Race Director, Shane Ohly from Ourea Events said, “Berghaus provided superb support for the 2012 race and I am really delighted to be working with the team there again on the 2015 Dragon’s Back Race™. The company’s renewed support will directly allow us to improve the event in many ways but I am most excited about providing live tracking of the competitors, which will allow the public to follow the race in real time as it unfolds. It’ll be very exciting!”
