Craig Yr Allt HQ

 

The race director started the Craig yr Allt Winter Fell Race in January 2014 which has been a great success each year that it's been run. This new summer race was  created to bolster the South Wales WFRA mid Week Summer Series developed for 2016. The route is more varied than the Winter Route and narrow in places.

It starts at the foot of the Rockwood Riding Centre access road. First comes the climb to the top of Craig yr Allt, on its eastern flanks, then it descends down an indistinct trod to the north. Then follows a contour of the northern hillside before and ascent in a re-entrant. We run along the ridge and down to the Taff Trail through trails, paths, fields and woodland. After a stream crossing we ascended a very steep field used by 4x4s and then descend into the Nant y Brynau valley. The next kilometre ascends the valley floor through woodland before climbing the steep northern valley side. We finish in the Mountain View Ranch.
