Route description
Route description

With significant ascent (well, from sea level to the summit of Snowdon for starters!), some steep terrain and some varied mountain weather. This is a full day’s outing on rugged ground.

The obstacles are provided by Mother Nature. You could say that we have taken the concept of obstacle-based runs and put it into the hills. The concept is to provide a solid running challenge that links up a few obstacle encounters: These will be exhilarating and largely provided by the landscape, as opposed to being built. Think jumping, swimming (very short sections and with the use of buoyancy aids and safety cover), scrambling and possibly the use of some ropes. We might throw one or two man-made obstacles at you but these too will be “built into” the landscape.

Logistics and schedule

The event starts in Caernarfon and finishes at Llanberis. Llanberis is 7.5 miles from Caenarfon by road on the A4086.

There is no car parking directly at the community centre but there are several pay and display car parks nearby.

How to get there

Bus Transfer:

We will be providing a bus transfer from Llanberis to the start line in Caernarfon. This service will cost £10. Busses are allocated against demand and must be pre-booked when you enter or through your account login in the ‘add products’ section. The bus will leave Llanberis at 06:30 on Saturday morning.
