Brecon Beacons National Park
From the depths of its limestone caves to the grandeur of Pen y Fan and Cribyn, its highest peaks, there’s plenty to explore in this gem of a national park. By day, there are moorlands, trails and towns to discover, while by night, you can feast your eyes on the stars.
Rolling green landscapes? Waterfalls? Characterful towns? Epic mountains? They’re all here and more.
A stunning run with panoramic views, and a fresh water lake perfect for wild swimming. This is just a few miles from the campsite, and can be included in a day of trail running adventures. The Fan Hir ridge stands at 761m in the eastern end of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park.
Available across the weekend, the On Running team will be on hand to pair you up with a pair of trail running shoes or hiking boots to try out.
Classic festival camping vibes, bring marshmallows for to toast over the open flames & fairy lights to decorate your tent! :)
Set to be a highlight of the weekend, you won't want to miss this!
"The intimate vibe was different from the larger, annual event in the Gower, but still the same positive energy throughout. Thanks so much for such a great weekend, and hope to see you on the trails again soon."

"Probably the most enjoyable, relaxed festival experience I’ve had. Rarely a queue for facilities or bars but always lively and something going on for everyone. Great music and party atmosphere in the evenings too!"
