Saturday 11th January 2014 will see the third running of the Tor-y-Foel race. On the two previous occasions the race has involved a distance of 7.4km/4.6miles with an ascent of some 370m/1150ft.
There has been extensive recent felling of trees alongside a section of the Bryn Oer Tramroad with closure of the tramroad between GR108203 and GR107188. It is hoped that this section, part of the final stages of the race, should be reopened by the end of December. If this doesn’t happen then there will still be a race but the course will
be decided when the picture becomes clearer.
If anyone is interested in running or helping with the race this year, whatever the
course, then you can contact me via:
The race is based at Danywenallt YHA with the finish on the dam itself. This year we had an entry of 99 runners, hopefully we will make it a century in 2014!
If you are planning to run the 2014 race, why not stay over in one of our many Talybont B&B’s or at least enjoy a pub meal or beer before you head for home.
