Trailhead Get Jerky Devil's Staircase
Ultra Trail Race

5th October 2024


Can you outrun the Devil?

The next running of this challenge event on 5th October 2024 The race distance will be approximately 50 km (31.5 miles) with a total ascent and descent of about 5,200ft (1585m). Most of the race will be off road with some short road sections including the hellishly steep ascent (25%) of the iconic Devil's staircase. The race will test endurance and stamina but will reward the runner with a fantastic, lasting and memorable experience.

The race will start in the centre of Llanwrtyd at 09:00 and finish in the same place.


The route will be on a mixture of tarmac road, forest tracks and farmland.

The course will be marshalled and waymarked with water points and two feed stations providing cold and hot drinks, bananas, biscuits and sweets. At the finish there will be Welsh cawl and a vegetarian alternative on offer. Each runner will receive a unique devil medal and there will be prizes for the first three male and female runners.

About the sponsor!

"In 2018, foodie entrepreneur Arwyn Watkins OBE, who has dedicated his career to promoting culinary-arts and Welsh food & drink and is the President of the Culinary Association of Wales, became the owner of Get Jerky.

Using his culinary expertise, he has transformed our jerky into an Award-Winning range of unique gourmet, spicy and easy-going marinated snacks, which emphasise the quality and flavour of the Welsh meat used in our products.

Our beefy snack is made from premium quality, fully traceable PGI Welsh Beef, raised and reared on the lush green pastures of Wales, to give the snack its premium taste and texture.

In 2022, our Wild Venison jerky joined the collection - we partnered with Wild & Game to create an equally successful range made with responsibly sourced wild venison under the dual brand Wild & Game and Get Jerky.

Our ambition is to take this hand-crafted artisan Welsh Beef Jerky into the mainstream snacking marketplace.

We are on a journey and always looking for valued partners in the UK and overseas to join us!"
