Ogwen25 | Yr Helgi Du 2024 Trail Running 10k
The Ogwen 10 is the perfect opportunity to be able to be part of the event and enjoy some stunning mountain vistas. The out and back, fast and flat route, follows the historic Slate Trail through the Valley with both the Glyderau and Carneddau dominating the landscape.
It’s a perfect introduction to trail running and could serve well as a lovely double day if combined with the Snowman Swims or even help you to stay loose for the Triathlon/Duathlon.
