    Leave the train at Knighton on the border of England and Wales for the start of your three day epic across the heart of the Celtic land to the sea.

    Take advantage of this pretty little market town to stock up on provisions and maybe even a coffee before you get going!

    Leaving England behind, head North West following the River Teme to Lloyney, before your first big climb on small roads and trails up to Pool Hill.

    Cross over the road and the Afon Ieithon heading West on the track before picking up Glyndwr's Way, an historic 135 mile (217 km) trail in the heart of Wales named after Owain Glyndwr, 15th Century warrior and self proclaimed prince!

    Taking you down off the higher, more remote ground you'll find yourself in the town of Rhayader, with a great selection of places to eat and refuel. It's not far from here to the end of the day in Elan Village, and easy going too, following the traffic-free Elan Valley Trail gently downhill to the village. Here you can choose from camping or lodgings, but it's a popular area so make sure you book ahead.
