Behind the Scenes - The Berghaus Dragon's Back Race Film Premiere

The legendary Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race® follows the mountainous spine of Wales from north to south. This incredible 5-day journey is 315 kilometres long with 15,500 metres of ascent across wild, trackless, remote and mountainous terrain. It is the toughest 5-day mountain race in the world.

Behind every great race is an even greater event team… this is their story. Follow the journey from their HQ in Kendal to Conwy Castle and onwards through Wales, as they venture to mountain peaks to place check points, move the event campsite through rural wales, and deal with incidents out on the course.  

Through all the highs and lows it’s the dedication, energy and passion of the event team that really brings the race to life, making it a truly memorable and special adventure for all involved.

With an introduction by Race Director Shane Ohly, join us to watch the premiere screening of a film bringing you behind the scenes insights into this incredible race.

Afterward the film there will Q&A with Shane Ohly, Lisa Watson (this year's winner and previous years' volunteer), Nikki Sommers (regular volunteer & helper) and Joe Faulkner (4x Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race® finisher [1992, 2012, 2015, 2017] and long time volunteer).
