About the Event

Event Information

Our introduction to fell running is perfect for members who want to try running in the Welsh mountains. We will meet at the Owls Grove Car Park and head on a 21km run around the Pen Y Fan Horseshoe. No pressure on pace, just enjoying the day and learning how to navigate over the hills in your running shoes. 

It's easy to get the car parks mixed up and there is no phone signal at this location for us to call you. Please make sure you park at Owls Grove car park. You will go past two reserviors, then turn right. Owls Grove is just past the tea rooms on the right. This is an accurate map: https://www.parkme.com/en-gb/lot/151995/owl-s-grove-merthyr-tydfil-uk
