The Dragon's Back Race (in Welsh, Ras Cefn y Ddraig) is a multiday running race across mountains from North Wales to South Wales. The 2019 race was from Conwy to Llandeilo, taking place over five days. The ascents in it would add up to twice the height of Mount Everest. The first race was in September 1992, and the second in September 2012. The name refers to the legendary Welsh Dragon. The next event is planned for 2021.
