The all-new Winter Trail Gaeaf will take place on Saturday February 17th 2024


After 8 years of the classic half marathon route this race will be shorter in length and now take in some wonderful singletracks and footpaths never used before on our Run Coed y Brenin events!


The exact route details will be released later in 2023, however you can expect a challenging route of approx. 7 miles in the beauty of the world-renowned Coed y Brenin Forest Park in the Eryri National Park - and we will still include the wonderful Sting in the Tail!

** Entries to the 2024 race will open on Friday the 13th of October at our early bird offer price of £23 (plus online booking fee) until the 31st of October - a saving of 15% on our standard pricing of £26 (plus online booking fee) which will kick-in on November 1st. **


....and we expect the 600 places to be snapped-up fast!

Of course, you could be looking at snow, frost, crystal clear blue skies or rain and mud, and that is the beauty of this wonderful forest habitat, we won’t know ’til race day. What we do know is that you can expect the same great organisation, welcome, atmosphere of our much-loved Coed y Brenin trail running events.


Your entry fee includes:

  • Bespoke Winter Trail Gaeaf finisher's medal

  • Commemorative Winter Trail Gaeaf mug, which will be filled veggie soup when you cross the finish line!

  • A fully marked and marshalled route

  • Well stocked feed station

  • Fantastic race arena atmosphere

  • Electronic Chip Timing with post-race text results

  • Entry into our Winter Trail Gaeaf prize draw to win one of our fab spot prizes

Priced at £26 (plus online booking fee) we feel that Winter Trail Gaeaf represents one of the best value-for-money trail events on the race calendar.

** NOTE ** should the Winter Trail Gaeaf event have to be postponed due to an extreme weather event an alternative Autumn race date will be arranged. Runners will also be offered a transfer to another Run Coed y Brenin race event, such as the Goldrush Trail or Trail Half Marathon ***

Runner's race number and any sponsor goodies will be handed out at race registration on Friday and Saturday WE DO NOT POST these items out.

Winter Trail Gaeaf utilises as many local suppliers and contractors as possible and aim to ensure that the local economy and mid-Wales community is affected in positive manner by the event, with that support hopefully being reciprocated ensuring that Winter Trail Gaeaf is an event that the local and national Welsh community can be proud of in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK.

Being on a Saturday, we also hope that may runners and families will stay on for the weekend in one of the numerous local hostels, cabins, hotels and bed and breakfasts that surround Coed y Brenin.
