About the route Race Director Michael Jones said: “After extensive route verification and testing we settled on a figure of eight route that explores the area’s most iconic ridges and Grade 1 scrambles including Crib Goch and Tryfan North Ridge, as well as an array of ruthless, technical trails in between: the Snowdon SkyRace® is without doubt set to become an international skyrunning classic”.
Official guided recce days are taking place over the weekend of 3rd/4th July, and will also be joined by Skyrunner® World Series elite athlete Georgia Tindley.
The race is moving to a new, more spacious event HQ and be joined by two brand-new skyrunning events: the 14 Peaks Ultra™, 53k/33 miles and Copper SkyTrail™ 24k\16 miles – further information on the website.
