Coed y Brenin's finest trail

Event date: April 2023

Registration: TBC

Goldrush Trail

Taking place in April 2023 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!

The Goldrush Trail 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.

Entry for the 2022 event is open and we expect places to be very popular with 200 runners and 75 canicross competitors expected.

  • Goldrush Trail mug to all finishers
  • A fully marked and marshalled route
  • well stocked feed station
  • Electronic Chip Timing with post-race text results

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
