The Sabrina Walk 2022

Start date: 25/06/2022

Since its launch in 2006, the Sabrina Walk has become a firm favourite amongst the UK walking community, particularly for those who enjoy visiting the Cambrian Mountains in the Spring!

This one-day event gives challengers the opportunity to follow one of two idyllic routes, based around the Celtic myth of Sabrina; one of three water nymphs said to carve the path for the River Severn.

The 25-mile Sarn Sabrina route heads out of Llanidloes, following the national trail of Glyndwr’s Way. Leading up past the Van Pool, the path opens to extensive views of the Llyn Clywedog and the surrounding countryside, before following the shoreline of the lake to the borders of the Hafren Forest. Climbing up through the Forest to the slopes of Pen Pumlumon Arwystli, the trail visits the source of the Severn at 752m. Descending along the Severn Way long distance path, the trail next takes to the watershed of the Severn and the Clywedog, enjoying stunning views before arriving back in Llanidloes.

The 12-mile Semi Sabrina also follows the national trail of Glyndwr’s Way out of Llanidloes. Leading up past the Van Pool, participants leave the Sarn Sabrina route to follow the trail down into a steep valley adorned each side with the infamous blanket of Bluebells.  The route then ascends up to Deildre to fantastic all around views, before following a combination of track and trail south of the Afon Clywedog to arrive back in Llanidloes.

The routes are both clearly marked at key points throughout.  Participants will be welcomed across the finish line with a buffet meal and refreshments at the quirky Crown & Anchor Inn, where celebrations will continue into the evening!

As valued fundraising partners, the Cambrian Mountain Events organisers will be fundraising for the Gurkha Welfare Trust throughout the day, and we encourage all participants to collect sponsorship too!  Once you’ve registered, simply get in touch and we will be pleased to help set-up your JustGiving page.  All donations will be gratefully received, however small – funds go a long way in Nepal and can really make a difference to our vital work.
