The main “International Snowdon Race”, now it’s 42nd year, is considered as one of the greatest in the world of mountain running, and attracts some of the best racers in Europe. For the 40 years its been organized by the local community and all voluntary members of the organization committee. That’s dedication for you.
So we as committee decided to test a new concept on the 40th anniversary in 2015, ‘Snowdon Twilight’ race to be held a month before the may race. An uphill race only at 7pm.
By popular demand for the runenrs that took part in the Twilight race in 2015, we as a committee have decided to organize the event once agin in 2016 with the help of a local community company HWB Eryri.
With the build up to the main event July 15 2017, we as a committee will again be organizing The Twilight and others below…
