RACE DAY THREE

Day 3 at the 2019 Berghaus Dragon's Back Race

With a 30% attrition rate after the first 3 days, statistically, if they made it to tonight's overnight camp, participants are most likely to finish the full race. Already tired after two tough days, there was a tough climb onto the Cadair Idris traverse early in the day today before the long 71km course headed into the Cambrian Mountains. Emotions are running high as participants are coming to terms with another metaphorical bite from The Dragon!

The 2019 Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race continues with the competitors facing sub-zero temperatures and 3,500m of climbing, including the 893m high Penygadair summit of the Cadair Idris. Statistically, competitors who complete this leg of the race have a better than average chance of finishing the whole event. Who will still be riding The Dragon by the day’s end? Catch up with all of the action from day 3.
