It is with regret that this year’s Beast of Bryn trail running races will not be taking place.
Following recent announcements affecting people working for "TATA" the organising committee, in partnership with Strip Products UK, have reached a decision not to hold this year’s event. The decision to cancel the event has not been taken lightly and led to a collective decision that holding the event during such difficult times was not appropriate.
It is extremely sad that this year’s event will not be taking place. As a steelworker I completely understand the difficulties being faced by the business at this time and holding the event feels inappropriate. I am hopeful that this time next year we will be in a different position and the Beast can be picked up from its resting place.
If you are one of the athletes that has already entered the race we apologise for any inconvenience caused. All entry fees and processing costs incurred will be completely refunded. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The very successful Beast of Bryn race has grown year on year attracting more runners and spectators from far afield and raised more than £60K for charity. The organisers share a very personal link to the race and have worked tirelessly during the last five years to provide a community event as well as donating the funds raised to charities close to their, and hopefully, everyone’s hearts.
On behalf of the organizing committee we thank you for supporting and making what we think is a great and unique event. We have strived with a lot of passion, fun and hard work to create an unforgettable experience for both athlete, supporter and spectator alike.
This event would not have been able to be such a great success without the totally voluntary support from numerous people and businesses, far too many to mention. No matter how little or large that support has been we really appreciate it.
Shaun Tobin, Graham Rowland and the organising committee.
