We as the voluntary organization committee of the International Snowdon Race are glad to announce another new concept race for the Snowdon Race BRAND, Llanberis, Wales. Nothing in it’s kind in Wales / UK.
With the popularity of the International Snowdon Race / Ras-yr-Wyddfa growing year on year, the fantastic programme of racing has been bolstered with the announcement of an exciting new uphill only race to the summit of this famous mountain, some 1085m above sea level.
The “SCOTT Sports – Snowdon TWILIGHT” will be held for the 23th June 2023 at 6pm, a few weeks before the main event of the International Snowdon Race.
It will give the runners (who have entered the main race) the opportunity to run UPHILL only in a competitive way, ideal training. It will be limited to just x 200 athletes who will have the experience of racing from the village of Llanberis to the summit of Snowdon and hopefully witness amazing scenery at the highest point in England and Wales.
Runners will arrive from all parts of UK and Europe and will stay on the Friday (race night) and over the weekend and enjoy another run on another mountain in Snowdonia Looking forward to see you and spread the word ! Thank you again for Snowdon Railway for their support.
