The Welsh 1000m Peaks Race, the Snowdonia Summits Marathon, takes place each year on the first or second Saturday in June. We are most grateful for First Hydro Company’s sponsorship of the 2013 race and the generous donation of prizes from Buff.
There are courses for Fell Runners and also for Endurance Mountaineers. This arduous event starts at Abergwyngregyn, on the shoreline of Conwy Bay, and finishes on the summit of Snowdon (3560 ft). It includes the ascent of the five peaks over 1000 metres high in Snowdonia: Carnedds Llewelyn, Dafydd and Ugain; tthe Mountaineers class completes just 4 peaks (due to time constraints).
The total distance that the fell runner competitors have to travel is about 21 miles with approximately 9500 ft of ascent.
The full race from Aber is a gruelling event, even in fine weather. It is a test of fitness, endurance and orienteering skills and the terrain is wild and remote. The A Class Fell Race is considered to be one of the most arduous events in the UK fell running calendar.
To broaden the appeal of the event to less adventurous competitors and juniors, a
short course race for both Fell Runners and Mountaineers is also organised at the
same time, starting in the Ogwen valley. Don’t under-
There are prizes for men, women, veterans (men and women over 40, over 50 and over 60) and for declared teams.
The Welsh 1000m Peaks Race is held in accordance with the rules and safety requirements of UK Athletics and WFRA and operates a safety policy.
The Welsh Fell Runners Association () is an independent organisation providing services for Fell Running in Wales. This race counts towards the WFRA North Wales Series.
