Dragon Hike and Fly Race 2024

Dragon Hike and Fly Race 2024

The 8th Dragon Hike and Fly is to be held on the weekend of 11 – 12 May 2024.

There will be a fall back weekend, 8 – 9 June, in case of untaskable weather conditions.

This year we have a fantastic bunch of sponsors involved, who all share our passion for hike and fly and with whom we work to supply their products from our shop in Crickhowell.

Thank you to Air Design, Stodeus, Little Cloud, SkySight and Bruce Goldsmith Designs for sponsoring this year’s event, which will be hosted by our friends at Cwmffryd Campsite for the second year running. On the afternoon of the second day, we aim to have a selection of demo wings available to try, as well as a DJ set courtesy of former student DJ Gallago, a Nepali style curry and refreshments available.
