The next date for Excalibur is Sunday May 8th 2022. All those who were entered for Excalibur 2020 and 2021 will be automatically deferred to the 2022 event. There is no need to re-apply. Because most entries are filled with those 2020 and 2021 entries there are limited entries available for 2022. Therefore, we will not open entries until February 2022. At this point the Start list will also become available and you will be able to check your entry status.
All of the above is subject to any changes in the Covid 19 restrictions although currently we are confident.
RUN IT, WALK IT (AT TIMES) BUT… CONQUER IT
Excalibur is the tough trail event that traverses the spectacular Clwydian Range in North Wales steeped in ancient Arthurian legend. With over 5,500 feet of ascent in the marathon route, 3200 in the half marathon and 1,750 in the 10k Excalibur is a tough trail event.
The event is organised by The Runners Hub and supported by Inov-8, who will offer prizes in the full and half marathon courses of £100 Inov-8 vouchers for first place (£75 second place and £50 third place). Canicross are welcome (and will have a separate start).
This year Excalibur will be supporting NEWSAR who have themselves supported the race each year. When you enter Excalibur this year you will be given the option to pay an additional amount direct to NEWSAR.
