Tough Runner UK welcomes the first edition of Winter 10 Miles Wales. The course will start/finish at Bryn Bettws Lodge and will take you through the Pelenna forest.
The course offers breath taking views over Afan Forest and enjoys a course of single tracks, forest roads and river crossings.
The course will be fully marked so all you need to do is follow the route, enjoy the scenery & look out for the forest animals. This is a great event to bring along family & friends for spectating. With the route returning back through the finish area at the half way point there’s plenty of opportunity to offer encouragement. There’s also a whole range of activities on offer and somewhere warm & dry you prefer to wait
