This is a fell race, of about 8miles (12.8km) over varied terrain, with nearly 800m of ascent, much of it in the first two miles of the course. The race includes some steep ascents and descents. Competitors need to be able to navigate, as although there are marshals at the checkpoints and at various gates/stiles around the course, the route is unmarked. Prior experience of fell running is recommended. As we cannot eliminate the risks of rough ground we recommend athletes wear trail or fell running shoes. Safety kit of map & compass, waterproof top and whistle must be carried.
From the carnival field, the race heads up past Rowen youth hostel, along the track to Cae Coch, up to the summit of Tal y Fan, across to the Penmaenmawr stone circle, and back towards Rowen youth hostel via tracks before the steep descent down the road back to the carnival field.
- No dogs.
- Cut off at check point one (Cae Coch) 45 minutes.
