Raw natural scenery is perhaps what Wales is best known for, with its hugely vast and lush green valleys, rocky and volcanic-like hills and mountains, mesmerising large lakes, and its underrated yet sensational coastlines and beaches. When trail running one is exposed to superb views of all of these, with Mt. Snowdonia even providing views all the way to England and the Irish Sea.

Some of the trail running can be quite challenging, so being in decent shape before your trail running trip will enhance your enjoyment of it. The small villages and towns in Wales are much more traditional than the bigger metropolis’ of Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham, and often you will encounter people who can only speak Welsh.
