50fed Ras Copaon 1000m Cymru

The 50th Welsh 1000m Peaks Race

5th June 2021


There have been changes in the courses over the years. In 2017 we changed the course structure and naming to become more streamlined. Earlier, in 2013, we added Glyder Fawr as the 5th peak in the long races when it was shown to be over 1000m high. Some of our the recent results are unavailable while we make a few changes to the website, sorry, they'll be back soon!
