Head to Llanberis this weekend to celebrate 40 years of The International Snowdon Race

2015 marks the 40th Anniversary of The International Snowdon Race. The main race takes place on Saturday 18th July, which sees hundreds of runners take on a gruelling 10-mile route from Llanberis to the summit of Snowdon and back. This year the route will start in the centre of Llanberis, replicating the first ever Snowdon Race in 1976. The race originally started out as part of Llanberis’ village carnival with 86 runners competing! It has since grown to become a world famous event, with over 500 participants travelling from more than 10 countries across the globe to take part.

Even if you aren’t participating in the race, it’s a great time to visit Llanberis. The whole family will enjoy the race day celebrations – younger children (under 8s) can take part in the fun run that starts at 11am, before watching the parade through the town prior to the start of the main race at 2pm.

The anniversary celebrations include various competitions held in Llanberis during the run up to the main event. After the main race on Saturday, there will be live music at Llanberis social club from Moniars and Band 6, which will be a great place to relax and enjoy the post-race buzz with other competitors (tickets cost £8).

Sunday evening will host a celebratory Snowdon Race Concert in St.Padarn’s Church, Llanberis, to finish off the week of events. The concert will feature performances from local singers Menir Gwilim and Elin Mai, as well as Llanberis School Choir.

Are you taking part in the Snowdon Race this year? Can you break the 1hr 02mins and 29sec record set by Kenny Stuart in 1985?
