Ras Tal y Fan
The Tal y Fan fell race is 8 miles (12.8km) over varied terrain, with nearly 800m of ascent, much of it in the first two miles of the course. You need to be able to navigate, as although there are marshals at the checkpoints and at the various gates/stiles around the course, the route is unmarked. Prior experience of fell running is recommended. There is a cut-off at the first check point at 45 minutes.
The race forms part of the Rowen Village Carnival. Please use the Carnival Parking, which will be signposted from the edge of the village. This is normally at Cefn Cae Farm LL32 8YU (courtesy of Meirion and Gwenan Jones). Follow the campsite signs, turning right immediately after the Ty Gwyn pub LL32 8YU, and follow instructions from the car park marshals.
Use the stile to access the Memorial Hall Playing Field.
Collect your race number from the gazebo. Numbers will be issued on the day. Number collection is from 12.30pm onwards.
Bring your own safety pins.
Toilets in the Memorial Hall and public toilets in the village car park.
The race will start at 2pm, but please be ready at 1.50pm for a head count and final briefing.
All runners need to carry a waterproof top / map of course / compass and whistle.
Race numbers are to be attached to the front of your vest, clearly visible at a distance for the marshals to record.
Should there be a queue at any of the stiles – please be polite and wait nicely.
