Midweek Series – Tal y Mignedd

Categories: Mountain Running News

For those of you who ran the Pedol Pennant on Saturday and didn’t feel you spent sufficient time on the Nantlle Ridge, then Tuesday’s inaugural running of Ras Tal y Mignedd will once again allow you to reach the summit’s giant obelisk. Another classic race in the making, the route is a simple out and back and considerably longer than most Tuesday evening races of recent years. Starting at the farm at Tal y Mignedd Isaf the route will follow the farm track for 0.8 miles before violently ascending a goliath 1600ft in just over a mile. On tapping Queen Victoria’s obelisk the the route returns along the same kamikaze descent before arriving back at the farm. Estimate winning time is 37 minutes 45 seconds. There will also be under 8 / 10 / 12 and 14 junior races.

Once again the farmers of the Nantlle Valley are being extremely welcoming and the farmer’s wife will be serving a collection of hot drinks, refreshments and cakes before and after the race. All proceeds will go to the local Ysgol Baladeulyn.
