Ras Tal-y-Fan

Saturday 10th July 2021

Hosted by Club Rhedwyr Eryri Harriers 

“The Tal y Fan fell race is 8miles (12.8km) over varied terrain, with
nearly 800m of ascent, much of it in the first two miles of the course. 
You need to be able to navigate, as although there are marshals at the
checkpoints and at the various gates/stiles around the course, the route
is unmarked.  Prior experience of fell running is recommended.”
