Category: AM
Distance: 15.9km / 10miles
Ascent: 920m / 3,000ft

Description:
Experienced fell runners will know the Mynydd Troed well. The new Cwmdu fell race is the old Mynydd Troed with a twist. Based at Cwmdu Village Hall just down the hill from the MT start, it climbs to Pen Tir and joins the MT circuit by the cairn that you used to pass at the top of the second climb. It then follows the MT route exactly until you jump off it again at the same cairn before descending by the way you came up to the start outside the Hall. Slightly more climb and slightly longer than the old MT, it retains all the stunning views.

Registration:
Cwmdu Village Hall, just north of the main village, GR 180240

Kit Requirements:
Full kit IS required; Wind-proof FULL Body cover (that's body and legs), Map, Compass (and the knowledge to use it) and Whistle. Note that Water-proof Full Body cover may be requested based on conditions, as to, may head cover and gloves.

Parking:
