The 2019 Berghaus Dragon's Back Race continues with another tough day through the Welsh mountains. The first summit of the day was the spectacular Cnicht, the Matterhorn of North Wales, followed by the gnarly and arduous terrain of the Moelwynion and the Rhinogydd. Who has now taken the lead? How many runners were cut-off at the mid-way support point? Catch up with all of the action from a sunny day 2! by Summit Fever Media & Steve Ashworth Media #DragonsBackRace

Day 3:

Day 3 at the 2019 Berghaus Dragon's Back Race

With a 22% attrition rate after the first 2 days, riding to 34% after three days, statistically, if participants made it to tonight's overnight camp, they are most likely to finish the full race. Already tired after two tough days, there was a tough climb onto the Cadair Idris traverse early in the day today before the long 71km course headed into the Cambrian Mountains. Emotions are running high as participants are coming to terms with another metaphoric bite from The Dragon!
