Details

From the Alwen Visitor Centre car park situated close to Llyn Brenig, this run provides the perfect venue for trail running. The route is a mixture of gravel, trail path and fire roads which wind their way through the pine trees and forest, together with some open grassy sections which provide a stunning view over Denbigh Moors. Canicross welcome.

The course consists of one loop, you will run around the lake clockwise. The course lay out makes it spectator friendly, as your supporters will get to see the runners at start and finish or at any point around the lake. The route is a mixture of gravel, trail path and fire roads which wind their way through the pine trees and Forest, together with some open grassy sections which provide a stunning view over Denbigh Moors. Generally the loop is well drained but if we have a British Summer rain there is a chance of mud. There will be a water station at the halfway point on this course.
