Betws-y-Coed Trail Challenge was established in 2013 by not-for-profit community group Betws Ymlaen. Our aim is to stage an event that is challenging and enjoyable for the competitors and that showcases the stunning lakes and forests around Betws-y-Coed - the Gateway to Snowdonia. During the day we will also have a number of attractions for families and spectators around the village while the race takes place, including a junior fun run.

I really enjoyed this race. The course is lovely and the people are friendly. My only improvements would be a bigger megaphone for the guy at the start because we couldn't hear him and to ask the people walking up the first hill to start at the back and stay to one side. I was trying to run up and had to elbow my way through. … read more

My friend and I both feel that people who are planning on completely walking up the first hill should be asked to start at the back, so those who are attempting to run up it aren't blocked in by walkers. Otherwise it's one of the best runs I've ever done.
