The Snowdonia Marathon course guarantees spectacular views and a special challenge. Starting from Nant Peris (300ft), the route heads up to Pen-y-Pass (1100 ft) before winding down the Nant Gwynant to Beddgelert and turning off to Waunfawr along the Cwellyn valley. Then comes the sting in the tail: the grind up to Bwlch y Groes (1200ft) with a short section of unmetalled track before dropping down to the finishing line at Llanberis.
