CAMPING, GLAMPING AND
PRE-PITCHED TENT OPTIONS
Our glanusk event venue will host our own rat race temporary campsite right near to all the action.
Campers will be right on hand to conveniently experience what the Rat Race Adventure Challenge has on offer in the event centre. Here you will find registration, our start/finish line for all the laps, bike compound and our Beerstalker food and bev tent – the venue for the post event party.
We have packages to fit all needs with options ranging from pitching your own tent to hiring one of ours with mattresses, duvets, heater, plug sockets and parking for your car right next to the tent. There is the facility of booking a ‘park and pitch’ space. This gives you a dedicated 9m x 6m area where you can choose to have your car right next to your tent, or bring your campervan or caravan. Whatever package you choose, all campers need a camping pass to access our dedicated hot showers, toilets and drinking water point. Camping passes cover for both Friday and Saturday night.
Join us and make a weekend of it in this spectacular location.
