The main “JEWSON International Snowdon Race”, now it’s 43nd 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 42 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 runners that took part in the Twilight race in 2015, we as a committee have decided to organize the event once agin in 2018 by popular demand and also a sponsorship from Inov8.
With the build up to the main event July 21 2018, we as a committee had a very successful INOV8 Twilight Race this year on June 29, over 160 runners tasing part in the uphill dash. Then enjoying the views from the summit plus a free cuppa and a flapjack courtesy of Snowdon Mountain Railway Summit Cafe Staff. The only time in the year that the cafe is open after 630pm.
