Buff Winter Trail Wales

Taking place on Saturday the 20th of January 2018 at 10.30am, the fourth annual Buff Winter Trail Wales will take in the Trail Marathon Wales half marathon route across the same stunning trails and tracks of the world-renowned Coed y Brenin Forest Park in the Snowdonia National Park – but in Winter conditions!

Of course, you could be looking at snow, frost, crystal clear blue skies or rain and mud, and that is the beauty of the Buff Winter Trail Wales, we won’t know til race day. What we do know is that you can expect the same great organisation, welcome, atmosphere and fun of Trail Marathon Wales.

Entry for the 2018 event opens on 1st of October, 2017 at 9am and we expect the 600 places to fill up fast! This will be a strict limit for the event, and we won’t be repeating any windows for entry – when they are gone, they are gone.


Your entry fee includes:

  • Exclusive Buff Winter Trail Wales original Buff product, worth £15
  • Commemorative Buff Winter Trail Wales thermal mug, which will be filled with tea or veggie soup when you cross the line!
  • Goody bag
  • Free parking for the whole day at Coed y Brenin
  • A fully marked and marshalled route
  • Two well stocked feed stations
  • Electronic Chip Timing with post-race text results
  • Entry into our Buff Winter Trail Wales prize draw to win one of 10 Buff winter spot prizes

Priced at £26 (plus online booking fee and NRW facilities fee) we feel that the Buff Winter Trail Wales still represents one of the best value-for-money events on the race calendar. (Note: Runners should be a minimum age of 17 years on race day)

The Buff Winter Trail Wales 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 Winter trail Wales 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
