The Route...

The Wye Valley is a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty straddling the England / Wales border lying on the western edge of the Forest of Dean, and undoubtedly is one of the most scenic and dramatic landscapes of southern Britain.

Our full challenge heads out from Chepstow - just over the Severn Bridge at the mouth of the River Wye - up to the historic city of Hereford. The 100km is broken down into 4 stages of between 20-30km, with a 'Major Rest Stop' at the end of each, stocked with plenty of food & drink, a covered marquee, medics & support teams. In between there are additional 'Mid Point Stops' with snacks & drinks and a full range of support services.

See the provisional Google map below.
