Snowdonia – The Spring Crossing


We’re back and this time at a brand new location on the shores of Llyn Cwellyn near Rhyd Ddu in the heart of Snowdonia. Set at Bron Fedw Uchaf farm on the quieter side of the mountain ranges, our new route The Spring Crossing will give you a chance to explore the less popular trails in the area.


With Snowdon towering above, the route will take you close to the summit before you head out towards the mountain ranges and forestry’s to the west with the most spectacular sea views. You will climb Moel Hebog, Y Garn and the Nanlle ridge to name but a few.


We have distances from 11k – 55k to choose from and all will test your abilities and mental strength. This is by far our hardest race on our calendar so please check the routes before you enter, after all this is Snowdonia.

Are you up for the challenge?
