Challenge Events in the Brecon Beacons:

An organised event involving significant numbers of people in countryside recreation such as a sponsored walk is subject to careful consideration under the terms of the 1995 Environment Act.  A National Park Authority has a duty to promote enjoyment of the countryside and this may include sporting and challenge events. However, if it is considered that an event could prove damaging to the environment than the requirements of conservation take priority over recreation. Where an event will take place in part or whole on land owned by the National Park Authority (or another statutory body which is bound to consider the requirements of the 1995 Act such as a local authority or the Countryside Council for Wales) then permission will be required to hold the event. Permission is of course also required from private landowners. Any organisation thinking of organising such an event should contact the National Park Authority at an early stage in the planning and seek advice as to the best way to organise such an event so that it will fit in with the guidelines (details available from the BBNPA) thus increasing likelihood of permission being granted.
