Join Action for our brand new Race the Sun challenge taking place in the stunning Offa’s Dyke – the 177 mile route along the Welsh border.

Starting at Sunrise from the Digeddi Wildlife Campsite near Glasbury, you start your day with a 22km cycle along the Gospel Pass, which, at 551 metres above sea level, is Wales’ highest road.

Descending into Llanthony, you swap your bikes for boots for your 22.2km trekking section. This section of Offa’s Dyke is renowned for its beauty. You’ll pass the ruins of the beautiful and evocative 12th century Llanthony Priory and enjoy breath-taking vistas all the way of the surrounding hills and the Wye Valley, until you reach Glasbury.

A 3.4km canoe down the River Wye. Paddling in two-seater sit-on-top canoes, you’ll paddle all the way back to our base – and finish line – at the Digeddi Wildlife Campsite!

Places are limited for this very popular event so register now.
