The event consists of 2 races. There will be a 8km* route and 16km* route race. The route for both races will be one loop and 2 loops of a 8km course. The races at Creini start and finish at the beautiful Caerau Uchaf Gardens, the highest private gardens open to the public, standing at well over 1000 ft. The loop takes in some fabulous 360 degree views, a roman camp site and a lake. Being just 4 miles from Bala a view of the lake is probable. With moorland, woodland and country trails there is plenty here to get your heart and legs pumping after a summer rest.
There is an entry limit of 500 (across both events) and we expect it to fill quickly, so get it now! There will also be a children's race on the day for the budding trail runners.
Our event centre provides a great family day out for both competitors and also spectators, with food and drinks available, children's activities, race commentary all at the start / finish line located in the grounds. Spectators will have a great view of the starters and finishers. There will be toilets provided and some shelter in the registration marquee, which hopefully we won't need. The weather will hopefully be kind in September but as it is Wales you can't be sure what the weather will do so make sure you dress for the conditions and maybe bring some sun cream just in case!
Due to the fact that all our events are held on private land, we are not able to provide you with course maps. As it is private land the route cannot be run before or after the race, so please don't try.
There is ample parking at the event and we charge £3 for each car. We encourage car sharing.
