U18 Race Info

All runners will need to have previous fell running experience and carry full safety kit.

The U18 race is mainly on good paths with the section between CP1 & CP2 being more open to route choice.

Obviously this is a challenging youth race so entrants should be used to regular runs of a similar fell distance or greater road distance.

Mandatory equipment:

  • Offroad/Fell shoes due to the steep descents from the summits and below checkpoint 1. Flat soled trainers are not suitable due to time of year.
  • See main Race Info sheet for more detail:
    Windproof full body cover
    Map (these will be available at registration, or you can print out from the website)
    Enough Food & Drink for your requirements
  • If the weather is poor you will be told to carry:
    Waterproof full body cover

The U18 route runs the first 2 checkpoints of the main race before turning left up the main ridge along the Offa’s Dyke path to Checkpoint 6 on the summit of Moel Dywyll. From here it continues along the ridge and (joins the U17 route) up the steep slopes on Moel Famau to the summit checkpoint 8 before descending the main descent route down the northern spur. Finish is back at the Village Hall.
