Online Entries for the 2024 event will open on 1st March 2024. We will be restricting entries to 200 runners / 50 teams.
Entry fee for 2023 was £160 per team of 4 (or £40 per team member) this is though subject to review for 2024.
There is no discount for smaller teams and we discourage smaller teams from entering. ( only teams that finish as a full team of 4 will be placed / receive prizes )
This was the first price increase in several years and was in response to the significant rise in the merchandise and organisational costs. We always try to keep any increases as low as possible and we hope you agree this still remains excellent value for money as each competitor receives a quality T-shirt, slate coaster, mug and post-race meal as well as the opportunity to take part in a well organised mountain race.
Due to the nature of the event, any team must have at least one member who has previously completed the race or must be able to provide some evidence of their suitability.
The reason for this is due to the fact that the course is entirely unmarked, and it is no exaggeration to say that in thick mist you can become very disorientated. Even on the Snowdon range people have been known to go wrong, and that’s on one of the most heavily walked mountains in the world.
This is definitely NOT a ‘turn up and have a go’ type event. Even the most experienced have found themselves misplaced due to fatigue and thick mist where you cannot see further than a few feet.
You may be fit for road marathons, but if you don’t have experience of off-road and steep ground events you will find it much tougher over the same distance. Add to this the navigational factor, and it becomes a proper challenge if no one in your team has a clue!
Remember this event is a test of fitness, teamwork and mountaincraft. One of you needs some of the latter.
