The main  International Snowdon Race”, now it’s 47th 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 47years 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 5.45pm.

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 2022 by popular demand and also a sponsorship from Inov8.
