Post date: Mar 8, 2013 4:50:25 PM

Category: AL

Distance: 32km / 20miles

Ascent: 2,750m / 9,000ft


The Welsh 1000s race taking in the five 1000m summits in Snowdonia.

This is my interpretation of the route taking account of compulsory/marked sections (as best I can figure them).


Friday night registration takes place at the Village Community Centre, Capel Curig (next to the Tyn y Coed Hotel).

Saturday morning registration is at Llanberis Community Centre (GR SH 581 599).

The bus to the start leaves from the bus stop area next to the community centre. See race website for exact details. Note, there is a small charge for the bus.

Kit Requirements:

Full kit WILL be required. Again, see race website for exact details. Note a map covering the entire route is required, a photocopy will not be accepted.


Parking is available at the Llanberis Community Centre (60 spaces) or just around the corner in the Dolbadarn council pay and display car park (off the road that crosses the dam). Both car parks charge for parking.
