The start of day one of the 2019 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race showcased how much the event has grown.
After the drama of Crib Goch and Snowdon on Monday, day two of the 2019 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race saw competitors heading into the Moelwynion and Rhinogydd, and some very challenging and sparsely populated terrain.
There was a big queue of runners ready to set off at 6:00am on day three of the Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race.
Four days into the 2019 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race and after 252km of challenging mountain running, only a minute separates the top two athletes in the women’s race.
I had often visited Decathlon stores when on holiday in France and had always been impressed by their range of sporting equipment. Their own brand clothing seems especially popular over there, so when Decathlon-UK offered MyOutdoors a collection of their latest trail running gear to test, I was more than happy to volunteer my services.
My partner introduced me to Anna Frost in 2014, when we watched Home on the big screens of Kendal Mountain Festival, treated to the raw emotion often neglected by film makers. A year on, he secretly signed me up to spend a day with Anna and like minded women at the beautiful Visitor Centre in Coed Y Brenin. I felt excited, curious and itching to get away from my desk and surround myself with passionate trail runners.
As the nights draw in and the temperatures start to drop, as runners we start to look forward to muddy trails and crisp morning runs. Here MyOutdoors Trail Running Team reviewer Giles Thurston checks out the range of options from the most well known and popular brand, Petzl.
A lightweight, technical, running shoe that arrived in the shops this Spring. With huge lugs the Terrex Boost are ideal for winter and the early Spring off-road mud baths.
A lightweight windproof is a piece of kit everyone should have in their outdoor arsenal. I take a look at Alpkit’s offering, the Arro Wind Shell.
Alpkit are known for making good, solid kit at affordable prices. They are continually adding to their range of outdoor focussed kit designed here in the UK. I was given the chance to test the running pack Alpkit have added to their line-up, Artlu 10l.
