Set in the picturesque Dee Valley, the race is just over 6 miles in length with 2100ft of ascent. It follows a route up to and along the Llantysilio Mountain ridge, with a final climb up to the highest point which is Moel y Gamelin at 1893ft.

Safety and Equipment

Runners should arrive and be prepared to carry whole body waterproof cover, hat and gloves, whistle. Although the race is well marshalled, and with a ‘sweeper’, much of the race is around 1500ft, climbing to 2000ft. At these altitudes in March, the weather can be extreme. The greatest need for clothing is not for running but when you are forced to stop or slow, and/or require assistance. The race director will specify minimum clothing requirements on the day.
