The ‘Brenig Way’ – Run Challenge @ The Brenig Way - Run Challenge
Sep 16 @ 7:00 am – 4:30 pm

SORRY! – EVENT FULL

The Brenig Way – Run Challenge is a 1 day, fully guided and supported ‘run’ following the 32 mile linear trail, from Corwen, in the Vale of Llangollen to the Llyn Brenig Reservoir Dam, high on the Denbigh Moors. 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.

WalkRun Clwydian are offering a limited number of spaces for this challenge, and will be providing the following, over the course of the day, to make your journey along the trail, as safe, stress free and enjoyable as possible:

  • Fully Qualified Guides – Leading you every step of the way – you’ll have no worries about getting lost, just relax and enjoy your surroundings and the challenge!
  • Checkpoint support – The day is split into 5 sections – approximately 5-7 miles in length, and at the end of each one we’ll meet you with your spare gear should you wish to change clothing policy, first aid provision and lots of food and drink to keep you going!
  • Safety and first aid cover – your in safe hands, your guide will be fully qualified when it comes to outdoor first aid, in addition we will have all the necassary skills and equipment to look after you if something goes wrong, at the end of each section.
  • Replenishment – Whilst it’s recommended that you carry some snacks and water on sections yourself, we’ll both provide and transport suitable foodstuffs and water/energy drinks and will have them waiting for you at the end of each section throughout the day.
  • Transport – If the worst happens and you can’t continue, through injury or extreme fatigue – we’ll take care of getting you back to where you need to be. We’ll also carry any spare clothing/footwear or anything else (within reason!) that you may want at some point during the day. We’ll also transport you back to your car in Corwen, if required when we’ve replenished in the cafe at the visitor centre!
  • Event Pack  2 months ahead of the challenge day, you’ll get guidance text on the route itself, an overview of the sections, tips for preparation and training along with other useful pieces of information.

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.

The Welsh 3000’s – Run Challenge @ Welsh 3000's Challenge
Jun 2 @ 4:00 am – 7:00 pm

 

REGISTER HERE

The Welsh 3000’s – Run Challenge is a 1 day, fully guided and supported ‘run’ along the highest mountains of Wales. The traditional 24 hour challenge to complete the 15 peaks is a tough ask, but doable for most moderately fit walkers who have prepared well. We will be moving relatively quickly for this challenge, and shall be running sections where appropriate, to gain an overall completion time of around 15 hours. We shall average a fast walking pace, using the more runnable ground for some running where possible, allowing ourselves the time to pace ourselves appropriately by taking it easy on the long climbs. This however, is dependant on a number of factors, not least the weather conditions. The route represents a real challenge, and is undertaken in a mountainous environment where previous experience is absolutely necessary for those taking this on. The route involves a lot of ascent (12,000ft), and at over 27 miles in length it represents a serious undertaking for those that are well prepared. Some (Grade 1) scrambling that never gets very difficult, but on Crib Goch the exposure is significant and participants must have a good head for heights and be comfortable in the mountain environment. Yes, it’s tough, but the rewards for those that take it on are truly great. The Welsh 3000’s – one for 2018?! A maximum of 8 persons are permitted for this challenge.

 

 

WalkRun Clwydian are offering a limited number of spaces for this challenge, and will be providing the following, over the course of the day, to make your journey along the Llangollen Round, as safe, stress free and enjoyable as possible:

  • Fully Qualified Guides – Lead on the hill by our MI Gareth Lewis, and our team at the end of each section, we’ll be looking after you on the hill itself and also at the end of each section where our van and team will meet you with replenishment and your drop bags. Leading you every step of the way, providing medical cover and helping with transportation – you’ll have no worries about getting lost, just relax and enjoy your surroundings and the challenge!
  • Checkpoint support – The day is split into 3 sections – and at the end of each one we’ll meet you with your spare gear should you wish to change clothing policy, first aid provision and lots of food and drink to keep you going!
  • Replenishment – Whilst it’s recommended that you carry some snacks and water on sections yourself, we’ll both provide and transport suitable foodstuffs and water/energy drinks and will have them waiting for you at the end of each section throughout the day.
