Foel Dinas - free "pop up" guided run
Sat 29 April 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
A hidden gem right next to the A470!
This 8km run has some amazing trails, and packs quite a couple of steep climbs (nearly 600m). It's definitely a mountain run, but with some amazing single track. There is forest, open moorland, fire trail and a bit of quarry slate.
As with all our pop-up runs, these are to inspire you to take routes you wouldn't usually head out on. This is exploration whilst being guided by no-mad running. Running with a group means that we always ensure no-one gets left behind - this route would take 3hrs if walked, and that is the time we prepare to be out for.
Whilst we will carry group kit for the run, you will need good off road shoes (more than 5mm grip) and clothing appropriate to the weather (this could be full body cover).
We'll email you with final meeting instructions, and if the weather makes this route unsafe, we'll let you know by email - if you leave a mobile number we will also text to make sure.
Why is it 2pm on a Saturday?
Well, with Dolgellau becoming a bit of a mecca for trail running we try and fit in with the weekly running offers. For everyone there is Dolgellau parkrun at 9am and for the younger runners Academi at 10:30 in Coed y Brenin.
This is a free event - but please don't take a ticket unless you're coming.
We understand that things change, and this can be unavoidable, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can give the space to someone else. To keep everyone safe we need to limit the numbers - we're looking after you, so please respect our decisions to vary this if needed.
