On Snowdonia Trail Marathon 2019
- 14 July 2019
The Snowdonia Trail Marathon 2019, the original and stunning Trail Marathon, Ultra Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k, starting and finishing in Wales's outdoor capital, Llanberis.
The Snowdonia Trail Marathon is a challenge in every sense of the word. Ascending 1,685 metres over 26 miles of iconic and spectacular trails, this epic race will circumnavigate and eventually climb part of Wales' highest peak - Snowdon. The incredible route explores the trails, gorgeous panoramic views, and tough climbs that make Snowdonia National Park perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. Visiting Rhyd Ddu, Beddgelert, Nant Gwynant, Pen y Pass and Snowdon, there surely can't be a more striking trail marathon route in the UK!
The Ultra encompasses 7000ft of climbing over 60km and visits the beautiful Cwm Tresgl and Cwm Pennant before rejoining the Marathon Route to ascent Snowdon.
The half marathon option takes in many of the fantastic routes and trails as the marathon, but ascends Snowdon via the Snowdon Ranger route, rather than the PyG track. The 10k skirts the base of Snowdon before returning past Dolbadarn castle and into Padarn country park and the heart of the Dinorwig slate quarries.
As well as a fantastic day of racing, there will be loads to keep spectators entertained. Hot and cold food, music, a wide range of activities and loads of kids entertainment too.
