World Film Première - The 2017 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race
The legendary Dragon’s Back Race follows the mountainous spine of Wales from north to south. This incredible 5-day journey is 315 kilometres long with 15,500 metres of ascent across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. It is the toughest 5-day mountain race in the world.
The original Dragon’s Back Race was back in in September 1992, won by legends Martin Stone and Helene Whitaker (nee Diamantides), and ever since it has been whispered about with a mixture of awe and trepidation. Its reputation had reached legendary status with fell, mountain and ultra-runners the world over by September 2012 when the second race took place. With further races in 2015 and 2017, the Berghaus Dragon's Back Race is now respected internationally for its 'toughest mountain race' status.
The 2017 race proved to be as hard as ever, with high mountains and high temperatures to contend with...
