The Ramsey Island 3 Peaks

For those of you who like running and like running in special places we have a real treat on offer here!

In conjunction with RSPB Ramsey Island and Voyages of Discovery Boat Trips, St Davids. Man-up UK are extremely proud to be putting on the Ramsey Island 3 Peaks

The Event is something a bit special and this is what you need to know

The Date – Thursday 13th July at 7pm

The Route / Distance the course is approximately 6K, of trail, paths and climbs (there’s no tarmac on the Island) and will take in its 3 peaks with about a 720ft gain in elevation. However it’s not really about that, it’s about taking part in probably (it has to be) the most westerly race in Wales on the RSPB owned Island, which is rich in wild life, fauna and with views to rival any where.

The Field there will be approximately 25 runners (Max)  with the majority of these places already taken we have just 6 charity slots left! and these are on offer for the first come first served basis. The minimum charitable donation is £50 and you can book here to secure your place

Event Sold Out

All Runners will receive a Ramsey Island 3 Peaks T-shirt and have times published

Once you have booked you can continue to fundraise if you wish. Just say you were to pay £50 of your own money and then fundraised and raised £60, you would only have to donate £10 of this £60 as 100% of the £50 booking fee will go to the charity (as clear as mud!)

The Charity – Now this event is the brain child of the Islands warden Greg who has and is running a number of events this year with is colleague Sarah (including Ras Dewi Sant) to raise awareness and money for the Gynaecology Cancer Fund. There Just giving page states

“Greg and Sarah are running 100 miles each in 2017 for The Gynaecological Cancer Fund (operated by Grace Belgravia Foundation) because cancer has touched both our lives in recent years” And having just read a stat that says 1 in 2 people will suffer from some form of cancer, it’s something that has touched us all!

Now being an Island getting to the start line may be an issue but fear not Rhys Price of Voyages of Discovery is sponsoring the event and will get the runners across the incredible Ramsey Sound and back again and you never know he may even take a detour on the way back to allow you all a little play on the Bitches, which is the rock formation and tidal flow running through the sound and not an affectionate name for his crew! This is worth half the registration fee in itself.
