BLACK MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE : 21st May 2016

May 24, 2016

ABC Solutions director, Simon Beacham, ran the annual Black Mountain Challenge in aid of the Longtown Mountain Rescue team.

The event consists of a choice of 3 testing routes of 50km, 32km or 16km between them taking in 15 summits over 600m, around the breath taking scenery of The Black Mountains.

Simon naturally chose the 50km route (34 miles) which he covered in 7 hours and 40 minutes finishing in 7th Position. The weather was a typically Welsh mountain recipe of light drizzle, mist at high level and predominantly clear sky and glorious sunshine.

The event starts and finishes at Llanthony Priory located in the Honddu Valley in the Vale of Ewyas
