Snowdonia or Eryri in Welsh is Wales’ largest National Park, its uninterrupted landscapes contain a wealth of treasures to discover and enjoy. From remote, hidden pools to magnificent high peaks; from rare and vulnerable species to a rich and unique culture. Covering a total of 823 square miles, Eryri’s landscape is steeped with culture, history, and heritage. Explore its towering peaks and breath-taking valleys, find tranquillity in its lesser-trodden paths and discover its extensive recreation opportunities.
With nine mountain ranges, 23 miles of coastline and over 11,000 hectares of native woodland and nearly 1500 miles of trail to explore, there is much to see and enjoy for UTS runners, family and friends before, during and after the Race weekend.
