Congratulations to all of you!


The inaugural Firelighter was an outstanding race with Paul Wathan comfortably taking the win. Of the top 10 runners there were equal male and female runners, with Sallie Holt finishing in a superb 3rd position.

We had 32 runners make the start line for the 2017 Firelighter. Of those 32 who stepped up to the challenge, only 26 of the toughest men and women made the finishing line. The steep climbs and descents over last 6 miles make it one tough, but very beautiful race!

What do people say about us?



"It was funny because a lot of the racers were surprised that we had travelled all that distance to do a race in Wales especially when we have such great trails near home - but it was well worth the travel and the scenery was equal in beauty but different - something that we can't get at home - and the people aspect of the race is what really threw the race over the top for us as one of the best."
