Brecon Beacons Night Hike

This event has very kindly been sponsored by: WESTERN POWER DISTRIBUTION.

Join Cancer Research Wales as we take on the Brecon Beacons at night fall. Guided and supported by JT Expeditions, we will climb Pen Y Fan from Storey Arms, passing the Tommy Jones Obelisk and Corn Du (873m). This exciting challenge will then bring us to the summit of Pen Y Fan (886m) where we will take our team photos and have a quick rest, before descending back down via the Brecon Beacons Way National Trail, back to Pont Ar Daf car park for some well earned refreshments.

Walking distance: 9km
