Coed y Brenin's finest trail

Event date: 21.04.2018

Registration: 01.12.2017

Goldrush Trail

Taking place on Saturday the 21st of April 2018 at 1.00pm, the Goldrush Trail race visits some of the best trails and singletrack that Coed y Brenin has to offer. The Goldrush trail is also the most recent of all of the Coed y Brenin running trail offerings and receives rave reviews from all runners who embark on its challenging 8.5 miles!

Organised in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Mawddach, the event also incorporates one of the best canicross (runners racing with their dog) events on the calendar. The Goldrush Canicross participants take on the very same route as the trail runners, starting 30 minutes afterwards at 1.30pm.

You can also be safe in knowledge that your efforts on the day will make a difference to local charitable causes, as £3 from every entry will be donated directly to the Mawddach Rotary club.

Entry for the 2018 event opens on the 1st of December, 2017 at 9am and we expect places to be very popular with 250 runners and 75 canicross competitors expected.


Your entry fee includes:

  • Goldrush Trail mug to all finishers
  • Free parking for the whole day at Coed y Brenin
  • A fully marked and marshalled route
  • well stocked feed station
  • Electronic Chip Timing with post-race text results
  • Entry into the Goldrush Trail prize draw to win one of 10 spot prizes

Priced at £18 (plus online booking fee and NRW facilities fee) we feel that the Goldrush Trail represents great value-for-money.

The Goldrush Trail race 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 this 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

Our Useful Links page is a great place to start to book your accommodation.
