50fed Ras Copaon 1000m Cymru

The 50th Welsh 1000m Peaks Race

5th June 2021


Now in its 50th year, the Welsh 1000m peaks truly is a classic fell race. The long course takes in the five highest mountains in Wales, starting at sea level and finishing on top of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon). The short course is still a great challenge, covering 3 peaks and finishing on the highest mountain in England and Wales.

This is a tough challenge, testing your strength, endurance and navigational skills. So why not see how you measure up to many of the sports legends who have taken part over the years?

If you fancy the challenge, but have less experience or just want to take things at a slower pace, then why not try the challenge class, suitable for ambitious walkers and first timers. The challenge events allow more time but still require navigational skills.

Check out the BBC coverage of the 2018 race to get an idea of what it's all about!

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