ABOUT US

Since 2018, M&L Outdoors have been providing guided hiking challenges, indoor climbing experiences, DofE expeditions and fell running in UK upland areas.

We are based in the incredible Brecon Beacons National Park and spend most of our time out hiking, running, climbing and cycling - always seeking a new adventure.


We love being able to take people to wild places, give new experiences and pass on skills - this was the foundation for starting our business. 

This area of the website hopes to give clients a little taste of what we offer and our experience so you can rest easy knowing you are in our capable hands.

We hope to see you on an adventure with us soon!

BRETT MAHONEY

As well as running M&L Outdoors, Brett is the Gwent Outdoor Activity Development Officer for The Outdoor Partnership, a registered charity that improves people's lives through outdoor activity.

Brett's main passion, is fell running, currently holding the fastest known time for summiting all of the Black Mountains in a single effort (completed in winter conditions!), he is now training towards completing the UK's big mountain rounds.
