Event description

Description

So you’ve tackled the Coed y Brenin Beast, now it’s time to break out of trail centre borders and face The Beast Unchained!

The Beast Unchained is the event formerly known as the Coed y Brenin Enduro but as the event is more Trail than 'MTB enduro' (in the sense of Gravity Enduro), we decided to change the name to make it a little less confusing for people.

The event is essentially an Trail challenges with emphasis on quality riding offering singletrack trails of a slightly more technically demanding nature than you’d expect to be used in your average XC marathon. In fact, some of the trails we use are also used for MTB Enduro events but there are no timed DH ‘stages’ as you would expect to see in an MTB Enduro. You could say that our events provide a great stepping stone for those looking to take on the challenge of an MTB Enduro race in future or perhaps they are for those who like the idea of MTB Enduro but don’t much fancy the pressures of competition.

Mega Beast

The Beast Unchained is Coed y Brenin’s biggest challenge ride and the largest participation MTB event in the forest park’s annual calendar. We want to take you beyond the challenge of ‘the Beast’, venturing outside the confines of the trail centre on an epic ride that will test your skills and endurance. You’ll head north, into wilder country with views of spectacular mountain scenery of Southern Snowdonia before returning back to the rocky tree lined slopes of Coed y Brenin Forest park to delight in a hand picked selection of its best way marked trails (and a few you wont find on the trail map).

The event is brought to you by the creators of the Dyfi Enduro and in partnership with the world’s greatest bike brand, Trek. The Beast Unchained fuses majestic big mountain scenery with superb forest singletrack in an awe-inspiring epic loop of fabulous trail riding.

Choose your challenge (30km/45km): The event offers multiple route distance options of increasing technical challenge. The 30km provides a good introduction to MTB trail challenge riding and great for those who would rather a more condensed ride, while the full Mega Beast 45km route offers a significant undertaking both in terms of distance and terrain for the more trail hardened rider. Expect tough climbs but also big rewards with some grin-enduing descents.

The event is a timed non-competitive MTB challenge open to riders 14+ (Riders aged 14 & 15yrs must be accompanied by an adult parent of guardian aged 18+ and the parent must sign a waivers agreeing to remain with the child on the ride at all times)

Ebikes are permitted to ride the 30km routes only and are restricted to a single battery. All ebikes must be declared on entry.

Good news for young folk - 14 and 15 year olds are now permitted to enter Sunday's main event so long as they are accompanied by an 18+ parent, guardian or allocated responsible adult with consent from parent or guardian. An additional waiver is required and the responsible individual must agree to remain with their charge at all times during the event.


Mini Beast MTB Challenge - (formerly Nippers n'Rippers)

(Free to Enter Childrens event)

Our popular kids MTB challenge will return on Saturday 28th September, open to kids from 4yrs ( all children must be accompanied at all times on the ride by an adult parent, guardian or responsible adult aged 18+). The event offers 3 ride distances of increasing challenge with a reward for all children who take part.

You can register your child for the event using the same link as the main event entries. Like the main event there are multiple route options, very young or inexperienced riders can ride the first loop of the Minortaur trail (3km) as part of the event, there is also a route of aproximately 8km recommended for 6-12yr olds and novice child riders (on easy Blue grade trail) and a more challenging route of aproximately 12km - recommended for 10-14yr olds or more experienced child riders (on a mix of Blue and Red graded trail). ALL CHILDREN MUST REMAIN ACCOMPANIED BY AN (age 18+) ADULT PARENT OR GUARDIAN AT ALL TIMES WHEN ON COURSE and will be required to complete a liability waiver at sign on.
