At our checkpoints you will find water, squash, coke, electrolytes, sweets, crisps, nuts, chocolate, bananas, cake, new potatoes and other carby bits on the marathon and ultra checkpoints . We are trying to reduce the use of plastic so we ask runners to bring reusable cups for coke and squash. There will not be any checkpoints during runs on our training weekends.

Snowdonia 

We’re back at our brand new location on the shores of Llyn Cwellyn nr Rhyd Ddu in the heart of Snowdonia. Set at Bron Fedw Uchaf farm on the quieter side of the mountain range our new routes will give you a chance to explore the less popular trails in the area. 

The route will head out towards the mountain ranges and forestry’s to the west with the most spectacular sea views. You will climb Moel Hebog, Y Garn and the Nanlle ridge to name but a few.  

We have distances from 13k – 55k to choose from and all will test your abilities and mental strength. This is by far our hardest race on our calendar so please check the routes before you enter, after all this is Snowdonia.

The 13k route is canicross friendly (please ensure your dog has trained for the event). The other routes are sadly not.

Number & Timing Chip

For our events, numbers and timing chips are sent to runners in the post approximately 1 week before the event. Please ensure your address is up to date on the system you used to register, at least 2 weeks. If you enter the event at the last minute, you will be able to collect your bib and timing chip on the day.

Please make a note of your registration time for the distance you selected and make sure you arrive giving yourself enough time to register.

Please also make a note of your briefing time and ensure you attend the briefing.

Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event.

You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.

Signage

We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken.

We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.

Regarding training weekends, no signage will be provided, as all runs will be guided.
