Hosted by Neath Harriers A.C.

Due to expected high numbers no guest runners

Car parking – £2.50 for 4 hours – limited space - please share a car if possible.

No coaches please. The road around the car park is narrow and we have had problems with coaches in the past.

Registration will be in the rear of the visitor centre (access from the lake side of the centre)  0945 to 1045 – please bring the correct change. £3 WAAA’s - £4 none WAAA’s.

Due to high numbers ladies will start approx. 5 mins after the men’s field.

Men – Start loop + 2 large laps = approx. 9.1 km

Ladies – Start loop + 1 large lap = approx. 4.5 km

NOTE – There are two small changes to the course from last year.

  1. At the end of the start loop the course will do a dog leg around a tree before going in to the field to the rear of the visitor centre.
  2. After running around the rear of the ruins the runners will be directed up a short, steep bank and turned right through the bamboo. Then follow the pathway back to the main grass field. A very large section of wall in the walled garden has collapsed hence the change.

Studs or flats (normal running shoes) not suitable for spikes.

Please remember that this is one of the more difficult courses in the league. There are numerous climbs and descents and the ground is quite uneven in places with lots of tree roots and stones. We want you to enjoy the race and go home safely!

There is a water crossing, it is only shallow but please take care when you cross.

For the men only there is a road crossing, please pay attention to the marshals at this point.

If you arrive early please check out the changes to this year’s course. Both sections are very close to the visitors centre.


First aid will be available at the finish should you need it. If you see someone in difficulty please stop to give assistance and/or make one of the marshals aware and we will aim to get assistance to them.

Refreshments, hot and cold, will be available to purchase in the café in the visitor centre.

A lot of things are changing next year so this may be the last race at the Gnoll Park.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy the race!
