The Original, Unique, Welsh 1000m Peaks Race

Conquering Snowdonia’s 1000m peaks - now in its 49th year!

Saturday 1 June 2019

Entry opens 1st Jan 2019

Founded in 1971, the long course starts at the sea and after crossing the windswept wilderness of the Carneddau and the rocky moonscape of the Glyderau, it finishes on Yr Wyddfa the highest mountain in England and Wales. The route takes in the five peaks of Snowdonia exceeding one vertical kilometre.

Are you ready to face this gruelling challenge which at 30 km and 2500 metres of climb is a tremendous test of strength, endurance and navigational skills?  If you're not sure, we have the shorter “half” route starting in the Ogwen valley and visiting three 1000m peaks.

The Welsh 1000m peaks race is held in accordance with the rules and safety requirements of the Welsh Fell Runners Association (www.wfra.org.uk), takes note of their kit requirements and operates a safety policy.

See you on June 1st 2019!
