Check out this short video of Rhys Jenkins during his 870-miles Wales Coast Path record attempt. Filmed and edited by Oli Smith from Dare2Run.

Track Rhys and donate here: https://rokman.co.uk/blogs/team-rokman/rhys-jenkins

Rhys is attempting this brutal endurance challenge for three charities close to his heart, hoping to raise Β£1,000 for each of them.

NSPCC / NSPCC: Child Protection Charity
The NSPCC is very important to Rhys and his wife, as while growing up, his wife was a sufferer of child abuse.

Maggie's Cardiff: Free support for cancer suffers:
Last year, Maggie's helped Rhys's mum with practical advice and emotional support through her recovery from cancer.

CF Warriors - Cystic Fibrosis Charity:
Rhys's best friend, Josh, is a lifelong sufferer of Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic lung disease affecting more than 10,500 people in the UK.

Just a small donation can help these charities continue their amazing work supporting suffers of cystic fibrosis, child abuse and cancer.

Just wanted to say what an awesome inaugural event. The first time I've been involved in an Ultra Relay and loved every minute of it! Thanks to the organisers and to the super duper marshals out there in those conditions all day!
Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back next year!

Dare12Run - the first 12 hour ultra-marathon continuous trail loop race in Wales

Operating as usual

01/02/2022

The Dare2Run journey has sadly come to an end.

From our conception back in 2017 we have had an incredible ride, and it’s been a privilege to have shared our love of the trails with you all.

We want to give a huge thank you to all of those who came to our races to run, volunteer or support us - you are the ones who gave us the courage to pursue and achieve our dreams and who pushed us along the way!


All entrants will be refunded over the coming weeks. We would massively recommend reinvesting in one of the other local trail races – check out @pegasusultrarunning 2022 calendar for some inspiration to get you back out on the trails.

We hope to see you out on the trails some day soon.

Dean & Oli x

(All existing and roll-over entrants have been emailed with details of the refund process - if you’ve missed this the process is automatic and you’ll be refunded to the bank account you booked with from Active Works, the ticket sales host)

12/06/2020

Following the recent Welsh Gov. advice we have made the tough decision to postpone the 2020 Dare12 Trail Race & Festival until Sept. 2021.

Those with tickets keep an eye on your emails for further info later today.

Thanks so much for your continued support - we miss you all and will back better than ever soon!

Stay safe and enjoy the trails,

Dean & Oli x
