What?

Returning to Walters Arena in 2024, this exclusive private landowner spot in the western Valleys promises an epic and challenging day out. The locals have shaped the trails for maximum enjoyment. Don't wait any longer – secure your entry now and be part of this epic journey

Where?

Walters Arena is situated in the Neath Valley. Like most places in the valleys you're never far from a major route, approx 30 minutes from the M4 or on the A465. We'll have event HQ at the top of the hill-due to world renown industrial heritage, the steep sided valleys in South Wales have limited spaces in the valley bottoms, where commercial and residential properties have taken over. Realistically, the wide open spaces are on the valley tops where farms now flourish where mines once dominated.

eMTB Charging

LPS electrical contractors are kindly working with us to provide a battery charging point, more details will be released in due course.
