The hugely popular 2016 edition of the trail marathon sold out in record time with over 1,200 people running the incredibly demanding marathon, half marathon and 10 km routes. Due to huge demand and interest, even more spaces will be made available for the 2017 race.

After the 2016 event, social media was awash with positive comments: “Toughest trail marathon around, tough technical sections and tough climbing towards the end but boy oh boy I’d definitely do it again!”

“Probably the toughest trail marathon in the country”

The SCOTT Snowdonia Trail Marathon is THE marathon challenge for 2017 – the route explores the stunning trails, spectacular panoramic views, and tough climbs that make Snowdonia National Park such a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Visiting Rhyd Ddu, Beddgelert, Nant Gwynant, Pen y Pass, ascending Snowdon before a steep descent back to the event village in Llanberis, this is a bucket list event in every sense of the word.

A representative for Always Aim High Events, the trail marathon’s organiser, said: “We are delighted to welcome the SCOTT Snowdonia Trail Marathon back for 2017 – demand for 2016 was truly huge and we are expecting record numbers for 2017!”

“This race is not for the feint hearted, but with some of the most stunning views, climbs and routes the UK has to offer, this event will live long in the memory for every single person taking part.”
