On Friday 23rd November, the Brecon Beacons WAAT4 Challenge beneficiaries, sponsors and supporters all come together to celebrate its 10th Cheque Presentation Evening at Brecon Police Station.

This year saw many changes to the WAAT4 and thank you goes out to the Organisers; Alan Roberts, Jane Joseph, Colleen Nash, Sgt Owen Dillon, Supt Jon Cummins and Ch. Inspector Matt Scrase for making this year’s event the success that is was.

126 Teams comprising of over 500 competitors undertook this year’s challenge and between them raised a fantastic £19,800.00 for our charities and good causes – Brecon Mountain Rescue, Wales Air Ambulance, A Safer Dyfed-Powys and the DofE Wales, with funds also being made available for the Police Cadets, National Trust, Brecon Beacons Park Society and Brecon Samba Band. TEAM WAAT4 would like to say a huge thank you to them all. This money is so desperately needed by our charities and good causes so that they can provide services and assistance to the vulnerable within our communities. This year saw the 30k route being substituted with a 20k route in order to try and encourage new beginners to the hills and proved very popular. We also split the event further into three categories for the Forces, Services and an Open Competition. Again this proved to be successful and we are very grateful to Mr Harry Legge-Bourke of Glanusk Estate, Speedy Cables of Abercrave and Likey’s of Brecon for so generously donating all the trophies for the competition. Our 40k continued its tradition in attracting competitors who are up for a challenge and surely enough took to the hills in style with the winning team IBS1 coming home in 3hrs 53mins and the 20k winners IBS2 time of 2hrs 3mins.

We would also like to thank the following for sponsoring this years challenge; Dyfed-Powys Police, Police & Crime Commissioner, Landmarc, Brecon Carreg, Likes Landrover, View Web Design, Barclays, Williams Coaches, Brecon Milk, WRJ Groundworks, Herdmans Hideaway, A Plant, Morrisons, Mountain Warehouse, Morgans Family Butchers.

WAAT4 to date has raised over £254,831.00 - Join us in 2019 and enter one of the best Team Navigation events in the UK - Remember the date: Saturday 15th June 2019 and help to raise money so that we can continue to work as a team for the vulnerable within our communities
