The route for the Summer Rebellion Ultra Marathon goes along the full length of Glyndwr's Way National Trail with a total ascent of just over 25,000ft (7700m).
The loops around Mid Wales and goes through farmland, forest, villages, towns. Because of this the countryside code must be followed at all times. You must make sure you leave the gates as you find them during the race.

As the Glyndwr's Way is a National Trail the route is well marked with wood posts etc. However there are a few places where the signs maybe missing or maybe hidden by overgrown trees and bushes, so atheltes must expect to do some navigation from time to time.
