Brecon Military Challenge 2023

This year, the annual Whiting Challenge was to complete the Brecon Military route within a 10-hour time period.

Starting with a 10-mile cycle from the Castle Hotel in Brecon to Pont ar Daf, the team then swapped their bikes for walking boots to take on a 15-mile hike over 5 peaks: Corn Du, Pen y Fan, Cribyn, Fan y Big and Tor y Foel, descending at Llangynidr. The final leg saw the team back on their bikes to complete a further 10-mile cycle back to Brecon.

The Challenge had a variety of intensities ranging from steep inclines to difficult terrain, however Whiting managed to complete the challenge within the time frame and ended the day with a well-deserved beer and burger.
