Fancy a real challenge to train for in the the new year?
The Welsh Peaks Race is in it's 50th year, the long route takes in the five peaks of Snowdonia exceeding one vertical kilometre, starting at the sea and after crossing the windswept wilderness of the Carneddau and the rocky moonscape of the Glyderau, it finishes on Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) the highest mountain in England and Wales.
Are you ready to face this gruelling challenge which at 32 km and 2500 metres of climb is a tremendous test of strength, endurance and navigational skills? If you're not sure, the shorter “half” route starts in the Ogwen valley and visits three 1000m peaks.
1) Long fell race, 32k 2500m accent
2) Short fell race, 12k 1400m accent
3) Long challenge race, 32k 2500m accent - no cut off times
4) Short challenge race, 12k 1400m accent - no cut off times
Whilst entry to any class requires demonstration of experience, the "challenge" events are self determined, so It's up to you. If you're not sure you're up to it but still what a crack at it, you can pair up and enter the short challenge race.
Everything you need to know about the races is on the race website:
We'll base ourselves in or near Llanberis - camping / hostel TBC depending on the group.
Whatever your level you've got 6 months to train! There will also be a recce weekend at Big Spring Camp at the end of May.
You'll need to sign up to the event itself on their own website.
The best bit - all the races finish on the summit of Snowdon so you get to go down in the Noddy train.
If you're still not convinced, you're welcome to join us on the recce on the weekend of Big Spring Camp.
