About the Dragon’s Back Race™Film...
In 1992 a 300 km mountain race was run along the mountainous spine of Wales. Over five days the Worlds leading mountain runners undertook an incredible adventure across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. Very few made it to the finishing line and the legend of the Dragon's Back Race™ was born.
Helene Whitaker and Martin Stone who raced together eventually won the 1992 race. Helene astounded many by beating some of the Worlds top male runners.
Twenty years later 84 runners from 15 countries are lining up in Conwy Castle looking to repeat the feat. Helene Whitaker is returning to race again alongside three other veterans of the original race, whilst fierce competition is expected from some of the UK's top mountain runners as they vie for the ultimate mountain running prize.
Many had considered the 1992 Dragon’s Back Race™ to be the toughest mountain running event ever organised. However, the 2012 route was harder still and included all the Welsh 3,000ft mountains on the first day, a number of additional summits on the other days and less road running throughout as the course weaves through the stunning Welsh mountains.
The Dragon’s Back Race™ is one of the hardest mountain races in the World.
