Running since 1980, this 4 day long event attracts entrants from all over Europe and the rest of the world. These none competitive walks offer a great social opportunity for like minded people, some interesting and technically challenging walks and some of the finest scenery in Great Britain. There is walking available on any or all of the four days with way-marked routes of 12 or 20 miles. In addition, there are guided walks of 5 and 8 miles on each day for those who are not quite so energetic.
The aims of the walks are to provide a focal point for people who enjoy walking, encourage physical activity, provide a challenge and show off some of the most picturesque countryside surrounding Llanwrtyd Wells. The Festival is non-competitive and, for the way-marked routes, a qualifying event towards the award scheme promoted by the IVV (International Federation of Popular Sports).
Certificates are given to every individual completing their chosen routes.The routes are designed to ensure you experience for yourself the magnificent area in which we are lucky enough to live, taking in mountains, moorland, streams, forests and rivers.
There is entertainment each night and the week culminates with the "Blister Ball" on the Saturday night with live music at the Neuadd Arms Hotel.
Entry to the way-marked walks is £10 per day or £35 for all four days and for the guided walks it is £5 per day.
