Snowdon Trail Running Challenge

Camping In Llanberis

Organiser's Description

We are very excited to be visiting Snowdonia for our third Snowdon Trail Running Challenge.

Snowdon is one of the prime areas of the UK for the wonderful sport of Mountain Trail Running and we are really pleased to be able to add it to our series of events.

Based at the Llwyn Bach Campsite in Llanberis, we have direct access onto the famous Llanberis Path and the foothills of Snowdon itself.

The Llanberis Path takes you around Snowdon joining the Rangers Path, the views on this trail run are phenomenal, you’ll definitely have to stop and take a picture or two on route. It’s certainly not an event to miss and is one of the toughest in our series with difficult, technical, rocky and slatey trails.


Canicross Friendly.

NB - times and details are provisional and may be subject to change.

At our checkpoints you will find water, squash, coke, electrolytes, sweets, crisps, nuts, chocolate, bananas and other carby bits on the marathon and ultra checkpoints . We are trying to reduce the use of plastic so we ask runners to bring reusable cups for coke and squash.

There is NO PARKING at Llwyn Celyn Bach Campsite - Unless you are camping there of course.

Please only use designated event parking as shown on the runner information email. If you have not received this email please check your junk folders, and if it is not there you may have entered the incorrect email address when signing up. Please email us at for the image. It takes around 20 minutes to walk from the parking area to HQ.

Parking is £5 per car, payable in cash upon arrival.

Numbers and timing chip's are to be collected on the day of the event at registration.

Please make a note of your registration time for the distance you selected and make sure you arrive giving yourself enough time to register.

Please also make a note of your briefing time and ensure you attend the briefing.

Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event.

You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.

We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken.

We also use striped tape, these are placed after any split to reassure you that you are on the correct trail. We also use them along long stretches where no turn off is required or directional arrows needed.

We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.

We have 100 camping spots available.

They are at the Llwyn Celyn Bach Campsite (a basic campsite) in the Start/Finish field of the event.

Camping is available on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th of September.

Cost is £7 per person per night. Parking an additional £5 for event day. Cash only.

Dogs welcome and must be kept on a lead at all times.
