Sunday, 3rd  Sept 2023 @ 1pm 

 

AS PER LAST YEAR, RACE HQ WILL BE AT PENMAENMAWR PHOENIX FOOTBALL CLUB LL34 6PR. There is ample parking at the venue. 

 

Race details 

  • 9 mile/2,800ft course visiting the summits of Tal y Fan & Moel Lus, with 5 CPs,  all of which must be visited in order. 

  • This year, the race is the 6th counter in the WFRA’s N Wales Series

  • Please arrive at HQ in time to register and pick up your race bag. Registration will take place between 11:00 – 12:30pm for a 1 o’clock start.  There is a half mile walk to the start – please allow 20 mins. 

  • Entry limit 100 - online entry (preferred) at Fabian 4 @ £6 for WFRA members (£2 supplement for non-members) which includes RaceTek electronic timing, a race map (non-waterproof) & refreshments,  including soup/roll at HQ after the race. There will be a few EOD places available, at the increased fee of £9. 

  • Minimum age is 18yo on race day. (Experienced 16 year olds may be considered eligible to run based on discussion with Neal Hockley)

  • There will be a cut-off at CP2 – time yet to be decided.

  • The race isn’t for consideration as a fun-run – mountain experience/navigation skills are required. I hope to be able to lead at least one recce of the route before race day in order to boost the confidence of wavering first-timers!

  • Safety pins will not be provided. 

  • Mandatory kit/safety requirements are listed here: https://sites.google.com/site/welshfra/information-for-runners  

  • There will be a presentation with the usual age category prizes, all sourced locally, & for the first M/F local runners. 

  • Any profit will be donated to local charities, with a small sum being given to the football club, which has very kindly agreed to loan us their excellent facilities free of charge. 

  • The football club has a public bar which will be serving drinks all day – inside & outside – and we’d love it to have some custom. 

 

Please do come again this year to support this tough, scenically superb fell race in my back garden the foothills of the Carneddau!!
