Newport Outdoor Group (NOG) will be hosting the Talybont Trial (TT), a 20-mile hike from Henderson Hall, in Talybont-on-Usk, through the lesser walked parts of the Brecon Beacon on September 15.
The route takes walkers in the high expanse of Craig Pwllfa and across Tor y Foel, with the opportunity to follow an ancient tramway, or to lunch in a cave believed to have been an arms cache for Chartists before they marched to Newport.
The TT20 is for people aged 18 and over, although a less strenuous 10-mile route (TT10) is also on offer and inclusive of children, with entrants of any level welcome.
Parking is available in Talybont-on-Usk, but overnight accommodation is unavailable.
Tea and biscuits will be served at the end of the walk, with showers available for those who’ve worked up a sweat.
Money raised will contribute to covering expenses and supporting voluntary emergency service, Brecon Mountain Rescue.
Pre-registration is closed, but you can still pay on the day. The TT20 registration is between 7am and 8am, with hiking from 8am, and is £22. The TT10 registration is between 9am and 9.30am when hiking will begin, and is £15.
People undergoing the challenge should wear appropriate footwear and clothing, including waterproofs and a rucksack.
It’s also recommended that they bring a map, compass, and food and drink.
