The Llangollen Round – Run Challenge is a 1 day, fully guided and supported ‘run’ following the 33 mile circular trail, above the Vale of Llangollen. The route involves 5,303ft of ascent and represents an exhilarating, challenging excursion for those that take it on. The scenery is incredibly varied and spectacular – you’ll take in lofty ridges, rolling hills, swathes of heather moorland and cross a world heritage landmark in addition to a lovely 17th century bridge over the River Dee. It’ll be one to remember!

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:

  • Checkpoint support – The day is split into 5 sections – approximately 5.5-7 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.
  • Event Pack  2 months ahead of the challenge day, you’ll get a guide 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 3.5mph – a brisk walking pace for most, and this includes stops at the end of each section, so the emphasis is on keeping going, not speed!

The pace will be dictated by the Run Leader.

Llyn's Llydaw and Glaslyn

Moel Siabod from Snowdon

Starting at the Bryn Glo car park, adjacent to Pont Cyfyng, we begin with a steady climb towards Llyn Y Foel, beneath Moel Siabod’s impressive Eastern facade. From here, a steep but not too technical ascent takes us almost right to the summit of the mountain, an exhilarating section it is too! After enjoying what are fantastic views on a clear day, we take the direct, mostly grassy descent towards Plas Y Brenin and a riverside run in! Snowdonia’s best 2 hour run excursion? Maybe, maybe not – but it’s right up there!!

Guided Mountain Run @ Snowdon and Moel Cynghorion
Jul 8 @ 9:00 am – 1:30 pm

Snowdon and Moel Cynghorion

REGISTRATION

Guided Activity Registration

A challenging run/walk on the Snowdon Range. This clearly requires a certain level of fitness but at the same time participants can enjoy a safe, no pressure day out amongst the highest mountains in Britain, South of the Scottish border. Regular rest stops to talk technique, take in some refreshment and the incredible surroundings will mean the group stays together and participants can go at their own pace – the ability levels in your group will be similar.

We’ll be using the Snowdon Ranger path for our ascent route, initally retracing our steps from the summit, before veering left at Bwlch Cwmbrwnog to tackle the short, but steep climb onto Moel Cynghorion. A wonderful grassy descent to Bwlch Maesgwm follows, then we rejoin the SRP to make our final descent to the finish.

Despite the fact that a train runs to the top, the fact that it is full of people every weekend and there are 6 recognised tourist paths to the summit – Snowdon is a complex, potentially dangerous mountain and as such the route may be changed if weather conditions dictate. If this is the case, still expect a great day out lower down on the range!

Participants are required to have some walking AND running (at whatever pace) experience on the hills and/or mountains to register for this event.

If you are unsure of your ability to join us on this outing on Wales’ highest Mountain, please contact us and we can advise.

Guided Mountain Walk @ Snowdon
Jul 8 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

 

 

Snowdon, via The Snowdon Ranger Path

This Guided Mountain walk takes in the highest Mountain in Britain, South of the Scottish border, and we’ll use the popular Snowdon Ranger Path for our route. Starting by the shores of Llyn Cwellyn, we cross the Welsh Highland Railway and zig-zag our way up the hillside, before a flat section in towards Bwlch Cwm Brwnog – where the terrain gets steeper and we climb gradually to above the spectacular cliffs of Clogwyn D’Arddu. Soon, we meet the Llanberis Path, coming from the left, before the short final push to the summit, at 3559ft above sea level. Hopefully the weather will be on our side and the views spectacular – and we’ll descent the same way when we’ve taken them in!

The emphasis is less on fitness, more on getting out and being active in our great outdoors and exploring new areas, on a social and hugely rewarding walk in a wonderful area. All walks are designed to cater for a range of fitness levels, if you are unsure about your ability to complete one of our advertised walks, do contact us to discuss and we can advise.
