Organiser's Description

A new race that took place for the first time in 2021 - in this truly beautiful area of North Wales. The town of Llangollen sits in the Dee Valley, and our route uses 2 way marked 15 mile linear routes (plus a little extra to gain the magic 50k!) either side of the river, to create a spectacular, challenging excursion in and above the valley. 

Iwan & Eirian enjoy the finish line!

With a well marked course, 3 check points with feed stations and great faciltiies at the starting/finishing area, it'll be a great option for experienced racers at this distance, but also an ideal way to move into ULTRA Running for those less experienced. Rest assured, there will be plenty of walking for the great majority of participants, given the nature of some of the ascents, but it'll allow time to take in the amazing views around you and enjoy support and encouragement from fellow runners, that Ultra Distance is known for!

Checkpoint Locations

Checkpoints shall be vegan friendly, and stocked with suitable nutiritional products from the likes of Nine Bar and Mountain Fuel.

11km - Bwlch y Groes SJ 15270 44344

21km - Corwen Leisure Centre SJ 08265 44166

39km - Ceiriog Forest SJ 14865 39348

It may be useful for recces, to know that the 2 existing linear routes that we are linking up, are the Dee Valley Way, which you'll take first to Corwen, before joining up with the North Berwyn Way for the route back in. You'll get through nearly 7000ft of ascent over the course of the route, which reaches a high point on the Berwyn hilltop of Moel Fferna, at 2071ft.

Approaching the highest point of the route on the beautiful Berwyns.

Finishers will receive a bespoke wooden medal, marking a great achievement, in addition to some memories of a wonderful day out in the hills above Llangollen!
