TrekFest The Beacons was a huge success! With hundreds of participants taking on the 25km or 50km challenge in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.

Goals were achieved, happy memories were created and many new friendships were made!

The atmosphere in the TrekFest Village was incredible – with challengers getting to know each other before and after their challenge, enjoying a celebratory drink together and a full weekend of camping!

We just wanted to say a huge WELL DONE to everyone who took part in TrekFest The Beacons this year. You pushed yourselves outside your comfort zones, took on the TrekFest challenge and achieved something amazing!

Check out the reviews of this years challenge … 


This is the first time I’ve done anything like this. The camp site was great, everyone was really helpful and friendly. There were plenty of staff around if you needed to ask anything. The barbecue was good and there was plenty of it. The challenge was a tough one but the checkpoints were well staffed and again they were really supportive and encouraging, as were the marshals along the route. We got a great welcome when we crossed the finish, it was an amazing feeling! People were still coming over the finish line hours later and the reception for each and everyone of them was great. I would recommend the organisation to anyone. It was a fantastic experience and the service was first class. Thank you for a superb weekend. Barbara

I just completed the 50km Brecon challenge with GAC and found the whole thing exceptionally well organised and executed. I’ll definitely be doing more challenges with them in the future. Highly recommended. Chris

Just completed the Trekfest Beacons 25k, and have to say It was excellent, from the time we arrived on Friday until we left Sunday everything was superb and well organised. I would defiantly recommend GAC to anyone wanting to take part in this type of event. I am already looking forward to next year’s Trekfest. Thanks GAC Cheryl

Completed the 50K TrekFest The Beacons at the weekend. A superbly organised event from registration to finish. Clearly marked routes, great facilities at the village and checkpoints and helpful staff always on hand. I’m now planning my next adventure! 😎 Richard

Took part in the Trekfest Brecon Beacons 25km challenge. The event was incredibly well organised, staff were very friendly and it was amazing! would very much recommend, as I will be returning for another Trekfest myself! Nicola

Completed the Brecon Trek Fest this weekend with my husband. The event was extremely well organised from start to finish. The event ‘village’ had a fun atmosphere and provided an opportunity to meet other participants. We hope to join Global Adventure Challenges for another event soon. Fiona

Trek fest is a great event! We did the 50k and wimped out with the camping (wanted a bath and comfy bed) but the atmosphere and team spirit of the village had a great feeling. All the staff were welcoming and encouraging and to top it all I was very impressed with the catering! already thinking about the next one! thank you! Vikki

25k Pen y Fan trek! Extremely well organised and friendly, supportive team. They filled me with confidence that they had everything covered that all I needed to do was focus on the challenge. Absolutely brilliant and I will definitely be booking more challenges with them. Thank you to the whole team x Carrie

Just completed 50km Brecon Beacons trek. Can’t recommend GAC enough, such a well organised event with supportive marshals and friendly atmosphere. The campsite was amazing, my partner and I enjoyed some delicious bbq food before the big day. Will definitely do another challenge with GAC! Dulcie

In 2017 I completed the Sahara Challenge with Global Adventure Challenges. It was amazing. Yesterday, I completed the 50k Trekfest the Beacons which was technically hard for me making the sense of achievement even greater. Global Adventure Challenges take care of their participants from registration to conclusion. I unreservedly recommend and am looking forward to my next challenge with them. Debbie
