The limit for entries was agreed upon after consultation with Brecon Mountain Rescue and the local Police Authorities to ensure the safety of those taking part. We apologise if you missed out on entering for the Moon Walk 2017 but really hope you will be able to join us at future events. 

Another chance to climb Pen y Fan to see the sun setting, and the moon rising. Join us for what has proven to be an extremely popular event.

  • “Moon Walk” certificate issued at the end of the walk. Refreshments available.
  • Entry fee £15 per person; free for under 12’s. Participants are also asked to give a further donation, or to gain sponsorship to support the vital work of St David’s Hospice Care in the community.
  • Sponsorship forms and kit list available to download below.
