Betws Y Coed Trail Challenge
Betws Y Coed
Betws-y-Coed Trail Challenge was established in 2013 by not-for-profit community group Betws Ymlaen. Our aim is to stage an event that is challenging and enjoyable for the competitors and that showcases the stunning lakes and forests around Betws-y-Coed - the Gateway to Snowdonia. During the day we will also have a number of attractions for families and spectators around the village while the race takes place, including a junior fun run.
For 2019 we are adding in a new challenge: a half marathon taking in double to ascent but also a second chance to take in the views.
