Ras Tarren Hendre Fell Race.

6 miles with 2000’ ascent.
WFRA Race Grade: AS/LK/PM/SER/NS.
The second race in the Meirionnydd - Winter Race Series.
The start and finish for the race is at the forest clearing above the railway line south west of the village SH672063. The lower reaches of the race are run on a mixture of well marked forest tracks and very steep footpaths, but the open fells above are unmarked. Cliffs lie left of the boundary fence. The high fell terrain can be featureless and is exposed to varied and often adverse weather conditions. Underfoot is typical fell and trail terrain with very boggy and uneven ground. Forest sections can be quite dark, steep, wet and treacherous underfoot with exposed tree roots. Slabs and wooden bridges and steps on the trail sections are slippery when wet. Lying snow and ice can be a feature.
