Maverick Adidas Terrex X & Ultra Snowdonia

We return to the Snowdonia National park for our fourth year for the Maverick Adidas Terrex Snowdonia X-series and Ultra event. This event has become notorious over the years, with more challenges, obstacles and ascent than any of our other races.. To keep up with the reputation of our Snowdonia event being a runners ‘A’ race and a destination venue, we’ve refreshed our routes and added a brand new Ultra distance race option.

Our new 50km route ascends Snowdon with the other three routes up the Llanberis Path and descends with the Long route down the Bwlch Main path. The route then snakes along the river before eventually climbing Moel Hebog, a 782m peak that translates as ‘Hill of the Falcon’. After the Mighty Hebog we venture through Beddgelert forest and onwards to the final climb of the day to Moel Eilio.

Whilst in the Snowdonia National Park there is never any guarantee of ‘good’ weather a few things we can certainly be sure of are; extraordinary trail running, formidable climbs, technical descents and a challenge like no other. With grit and determination these routes are achievable for all runners and will leave you all with the most fulfilling sense of accomplishment.

For many of our runners our Snowdon X-series event is quite literally the peak of their season and a place where they push and often exceed their own personal limits. The Maverick Adidas Terrex Snowdonia X-series event is the one event on our calendar that there is absolutely no other substitute for, so be brave and courageous and we look forward to seeing you on the start line in May.
