Not strictly running related but the area is a perfect location for getting off road and hitting the trails on foot. Plas y Brenin is running (pun intended!) a prize draw to celebrate 65 years of outdoors activity.
This year, National Outdoor Centre Plas y Brenin is celebrating 65 years of helping people of all ages and skill levels get active in the outdoors.
Whilst the activities might have changed over the years, from horse riding to mountain biking, their love of adventure and commitment to educating people about the benefits of the outdoors, along with helping nurture skills and confidence in the outdoors has never wavered.
