Entries to open for Snowdon race
Bookmark and Share
Fell runners who fancy putting on their running shoes and taking on the highest peak in Wales will get their chance to enter the Snowdon International Race from tomorrow (March 1st).

Those planning to take part will have to be quick on the keyboards, with online entry places restricted to 200 for those who have run the event before and 600 for first-timers.

However, entrants in the latter group must meet the qualifying criteria of having either run two category A races or a marathon.

And with a 3,560 ft mountain ahead, those taking part in the run on July 21st will need to be very fit.

The route starts and ends at Padarn Park in Llanberis, the village at the foot of the mountain, taking the Llanberis Path up to the summit and then returning via the same route.

Other challenges for fell runners include the Snowdonia 3,000 challenge, which involves trying to scale all 15 peaks above that height in a day.

This can be done in a north-south or south-north direction, meaning those taking on the challenge can either start or finish with Snowdon.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801305724-ADNFCR
