Its been announced that APEX Running are the new organisers of the Snowdonia Slate Trail Ultra, created and hosted previously by Up Hill Down Dale.

The weekend will also include a new 80 km race, the Daffodil Trail. Taking place over the weekend of 15-17th October 2021, registration for both events is now open.

Starting at Zip World Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda, the 150km/4000m+ Slate Trail Ultra takes in the full Snowdonia Slate Trail route, starting with an out-and-back section to the coast.

The 80km/2300m+ Daffodil Trail skips the out-and-back to the coast and follows the Snowdonia Slate Trail to Aberglaslyn Pass, before leaving the trail to head north through the beautiful Nant Gwynant Valley. From the Pen-y-Gwryd hotel checkpoint, the challenging Miners Track climb up and over to Cwm Tryfan follows, before runners re-join the Slate Trail for the closing kilometres through the sublime Ogwen and Nant Ffracon valleys back to the finish.

I believe ultrarunning can be and is, for many people, a transformative experience. I hope to inspire and encourage runners from all levels of abilities to stretch themselves and discover what they truly are capable of achieving in the running world. To that end we produce a free online magazine, Ultrarunning World, from material produced mostly by ultrarunners from around the globe offering insight and experience from all kinds of ultras and multidays.
