The event consists of 2 races. There will be a 10km* and 20km* race. The route for both races will be one loop and 2 loops of a 10km* course. You can catch some great views of the area as you run over the bespoke course.
There is plenty of variety in terrain over the route with forest tracks, footpaths and fields. There is an entry limit of 500 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 from the Rhug Organic Farm Shop, children's activities, race commentary all at the start / finish line located in the grounds across the road from the farm shop. 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. But as it is Wales in April you can't be sure what the weather will do so make sure you dress for the conditions and maybe pack 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 no charge for car parking at this event.
