The Brenig Way Run Challenge route

Icon

The route involves 4628ft of ascent and represents an exhilarating, challenging excursion for those that take it on. The scenery is beautiful along the way – you’ll cover ground that isn’t very well trodden, on good paths that discreetly wind their way through the Dee Valley, through Glan Yr Afon, Maerdy. Clocaenog Forest, Cyfylliog and a gentle ascent alongside the River Clwyedog which ultimately brings you out on the archaeological trail at Llyn Brenig and a flat jog in to the finish.

Speed - We will be averaging around 3.8mph moving time – a brisk walking pace for most, with rest stops at each CP, so the emphasis is on keeping going, not speed! Think of walking briskly the climbs, jogging the flat sections and running the descents and you’ll end up with this average pace, or thereabouts. The pace will be dictated by the Run Leaders.
