Varga (Wye) Trail

Start date: 13/08/2022

Following the success of the long-established Sabrina Walk and more recent Race to the Sea, Cambrian Mountain Events are proud to launch the Varga (Wye) Trail.  The 60km route compliments CME’s exciting series of events commemorating the River Sister of Pumlumon and will prove to be the most challenging to date!

This amazing 60k route has a total ascent of 5,508ft, and on a clear day boasts some spectacular views across the Cambrian Mountains as far as the Snowdonia Mountain Range to the North and the Brecon Beacons to the South.  Starting out from Llanidloes Town Centre, the route heads out through Cwmbelan to Marsh’s Pool and over the Wind Farm on Blaen-y-Glyn.  Trekkers then continue along the South-side of the beautiful Hafren Forest, joining the picturesque Wye Valley Walk to the Source of the River Wye.  The route continues South along the Wye Valley Walk trail to Tynant, where walkers then take minor roads to Dolhelfa, Tylwch, Brynposteg Hill, and Cilfach-allt, eventually returning to Llanidloes Town Centre.

The route is clearly marked at key points throughout, and the event is dog friendly for responsible owners and CaniCross Participants alike.  Everyone 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.
