Llydaw race competitor

The club supports 2 fell races each year by volunteering .  

There is also an ad hoc route for the strong of leg - the Gorphwysfa Challenge.


Llydaw Race (see poster for 2019)

This race starts from the Youth Hostel at Pen-y-Pass at about 10:00 am on 1st January, each year.

As might be expected from the date and time this is a low-key event. The weather usually provides the main challenge, unsurprisingly given the altitude and time of year. Be prepared for really foul weather and conditions underfoot.

Please register before 10:00 on the day.

Look at the Weather Forecast for Snowdonia before coming!

With luck you might even be able to see what the Summit actually looks like today.

The Gorphwysfa Challenge

Do you want a good day out in Snowdonia? Why not have a go at the Gorphwysfa Challenge, about 17 miles of rugged countryside and over 5000 feet of climbing. Can you beat our fastest time set up by Jayne Lloyd 3hrs 41mins 08 secs?

Welsh 1000m Peaks Race takes place in June.  It has its own website with all race information.
