The Kymin Dash

The Kymin Dash is a challenging and very scenic 7 mile race, straight up to the top of the Kymin above Monmouth, and back down on a long scenic loop of the Wye Valley.

Spirit of Monmouth Running Club are proud to present this race following on from the continued success and growth of previous years.

The course starts with an ascent to the Round House, a local viewpoint at around 850ft. The opening mile or so will certainly give your lungs a workout. What goes up must come down and a gentle descent through fields and the bluebell carpeted forest tracks before a long flat finish along the Hadnock Road into the Monmouth School Sports Club.

There are prizes for the ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ of the hill (first to the top) as well as finishing places. There will be a post race snack provided by one of our sponsors and other refreshments available to runners after the race.

The Santa Fun Run

Get ready to jingle all the way with the Spirit Running Club Monmouth’s Santa Fun Run! Each year, we spread holiday cheer as hundreds of Santas, elves, and festive characters take to the streets of Monmouth for a merry 2.1km run, jog, or walk.

Our wooden finisher’s medals and biodegradable ribbons not only celebrate your accomplishment but also reflect our commitment to sustainability. With entry fees supporting local charities, including past contributions of over £1,600, every step you take helps make a difference in our community.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or simply looking for some festive fun, come join us for a morning filled with laughter, goodwill, and holiday spirit.
