Llangollen Round Challenge - 2nd & 3rd June 2018

The 3rd Llangollen Round Challenge is still accepting entrants. We now have over 400. There are places left but HURRY!

Closing date is Wednesday 30th May...... just a few days before the walk.

  • The 3rd Llangollen Round Challenge is going to be the best yet!  We can promise you glorious scenery, lots of support and snacks at the checkpoints on the way round, and more food at the end of the day, but be in no doubt – you will have to work for it.  This Challenge is no stroll in the park!
  • The Llangollen Round is a well-waymarked 33-mile circular route visiting every summit around the Vale of Llangollen.  The Challenge uses exactly this route, but since it starts and ends at Dinas Brân School in the town, an extra stretch has been added at beginning and end, making the total distance to be covered 35 miles.  You have the option of doing this in one day, the Saturday or two, with those choosing two days being bussed back to Llangollen from the mid-point on Saturday and returned to the same place on Sunday morning.
  • Over the 35 miles, the total ascent (and of course, descent) is around 2000 metres – that is, completing the circuit is like going up Snowdon twice over.   Don’t be too put off by that though, because the climbing is spread over a long distance, and there is only one short section that can be described as ‘demanding’.  And in no way is it dangerous!
  • All entrants must be at least 15 years of age, and under-18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  On the advice of local vets, we cannot allow dogs.
  • On a positive note, we expect at least 400 entrants so you will have plenty of company, and we hope, even some fun!  And at the end of the day, there’s a certificate and a medal for everyone, and some more food in the school restaurant
  • Finally, this event is organised to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.  It is intended that everyone taking part should seek sponsorship.  In 2015 we raised £45,000.  With your help. maybe we can make it a mighty £50,000 this time!

We are more than happy to answer any queries you might have at any time – ring Judy on 01978 869364 / 07905330788 or email thellangollenround@gmail.com

COMMENT FROM WALKERS IN 2015

Thank you and your wonderful team for organising such a brilliant event. All the helpers, checkpoint marshals etc were so polite and encouraging. 

Ian Roberts, Overton.

This was a great day with excellent organisation and support from the volunteers, from signing in at the start, the encouragement and enthusiasm shown at the checkpoints, not to mention all the fab goodies and endless flapjacks, to the very welcome home at the end.

Susan & Gary.
