Overview

The WAAT4 Challenge is a prestigious navigation event in Wales’ beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Teams from all over the UK take part every year.

Its reputation is growing quickly and it features in the walking calendar for such events. Each year over 550 competitors take part over either 20km or 40km Challenges which includes South Wales’ highest peak - Pen y fan.

Whatever your ability, you are welcome to enjoy the 40km route, or our shorter 20km route at your own pace. We want everyone to enjoy taking part by completing the course whilst taking in some of the best views in the Brecon Beacons.

The event is organised by Dyfed-Powys Police and supported by members of the Brecon Mountain Rescue, Wales Air Ambulance and volunteers on the day.

Casualty Evacuation Procedure

1) In the event of an injured casualty who requires assistance etc, phone Brecon Mountain Rescue control on 07831 894466. Use a 'Smart' phone if one is available and the person with the 'smart' phone to stay with casualty. ***

2) If no phone signal 2 team members make their way to the nearest checkpoint so medics can provide appropriate first aid and arrange evacuation as required.

*** A much quicker response can be obtained by contacting mountain rescue as soon as possible rather than having to walk to the next Checkpoint. If using a 'Smart' phone mountain rescue can usually send a link back to the phone and the outcome is that they would be able pin point the actual grid reference of casualty site.

*It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure that they are medically fit to undertake the challenge.
