Covering 2,500 feet of climbing, the 10 mile race will provide a stern test for all those who tackle it. The race headquarters on the day will be the Eagles Inn in Llanuwchllyn. With the main race due off at 1.00pm, there is also the added attraction of the much shorter Ras Y Garth, which covers a 2 mile distance. This race is open to budding athletes over the age of 10, as well as those eager to tackle a fell race, albeit in far greater moderation than the main event. Ras Y Garth is due off at 1.15pm. Further details relating to the two races are available on www.run-meirionnydd.co.uk.
