This event is a bit special and for those of you who like running and like running in beautiful places we have a real treat on offer, although the Ramsey 3 peaks is a very good trail run in it’s own right, it’s also a challenge suitable for all and an experience you will treasure for a long time.
In conjunction with RSPB Ramsey Island and Voyages of Discovery Boat Trips, St Davids. Man-up UK are extremely proud to be hosting the Ramsey Island 3 Peaks
The Date – Saturday 30th June 2018 at 1600hrs
The route is approximately 4miles and has been put together by Greg Morgan the Island’s warden for the past 12 years, it consists of trail, paths and climbs (there’s no tarmac on the Island) and will take in its 3 peaks with about a 720ft gain in elevation.
However it’s not really about that, it’s about taking part in the most westerly race in Wales (The Island is the most accessible westerly point in the principality) on the RSPB owned Island, which is rich in wild life, fauna and has world class views.
Greg also has an official leader board going, which records the quickest time around the course, which funny enough Greg had held for many a year, but this was beaten in the last 3 Peaks Challenge by Bridgend lad Rowan Hobbs who now currently sits on top of the pile with an impressive 31.24!! The 2018 run will see us adding a new challenge,
THE 3 PEAKS DOUBLE 8 MILES!
This will be two laps of the course and is not for the faint hearted! Because numbers are limited you can decide on the day (even whilst you are running) if you want to do the double or not!
A nice little extra to the run is getting to the start line, you will have a boat trip from St Justinian’s to The Island, via a high powered exhilarating rib courtesy of Ramsey Island Voyages of Discovery which will take you across the infamous Ramsey Sound and past the bitches rocks.
On completion of the race the wardens Greg and Lisa will make you a cup of tea, once they have finished their run!! And we will have a BBQ going (weather dependant) so that when you cross the line you can refuel whilst relaxing and looking back across Ramsey sound to the mainland, which really is a sight to behold.
3 peaks T-shirt for all runners and awards for the 1st Male/Female on both the 4 & 8 mile routes
We will also stay on the Island for approximately 2 hours after the last runner is in to allow you to walk some of the course and routes to explore the island and appreciate the wildlife and nature. How many runs do you feel the need to do that on!!!
The Field will consist of 30 runners
Registration will be the Friday night or on the Island just prior to the run
The Boat will leave St Justinian at 1600hrs
The Race will be timed with times published and added to the Ramsey Island leader board
