Live On The Edge Teams Up With The Ultra-Trail Snowdonia
We’re excited to announce that Live On The Edge will be supporting the inaugural edition of Ultra-Trail Snowdonia this May, the first ultra running race of it’s kind in Wales.
Created by ultra endurance runner Mike Jones, he realised there were very few ultra mountain running events in the UK, and so set about designing the ultimate challenge through the rugged, Welsh landscape. A keen racer himself, Mike is no stranger to the podium. He is a multiple winner of the Lakeland 100 – a hundred mile trail running race in the heart of the Lake District – as well as many other coveted international races.
When is it?
Held on the 11th to the 13th of May, the Ultra Trail Snowdonia has two distances; 50 miles and 100 miles. Both will be a true challenge in the mountains, and there’s no shortage of height gain. With up to 10,000 metres of ascent to settle, racers will be set an incredibly tough, but hugely rewards route to follow. Self-suffiency is key; there are no feed stations so racer must plan their nutrition and carry all that they need with them as they go.
Live On The Edge will be rewarding the top spots with a series of recovery products from the range of brands we stock – what better prize than that! Podium placers can win our best selling HYPERICE VYPER 2.0, as well as a selection of HYPERICE’s new RelaxRoll range and Live On The Edge massage balls and bands.
Until the end of April, there’s a discount on offer, so if you’re legs feel like they need a stretch and are ready to take on the summits of Snowdonia as well as the surrounding peaks, you can still enter here.
Worldwide Field and UTMB Points
Racers from around the world will be at the start-line; from South Africa, Australia, Germany, France and New Zealand – some of the most competitive runners will be taking to the trails. We’ll be sharing updates from the race, and you can see a selection of shots taken on the recent recce by visiting our Facebook page.
