Snowdonia Trail Running Weekend


'Snowdon-it'

Taking place from just outside the stunning Welsh village of Llanberis, our 'Snowdon-it' trail running weekend starts on Saturday 23rd Sept with part one, which comprises of a stunning guided trail run that ascends to the summit of the iconic Mount Snowdon*, recently voted the best view in the UK. Part two comprises of a shorter Sunday route that takes in beautiful trails around the picturesque village of Dinorwig.
