2019 Cambrian Dragons Trail

Facebook Facebook page for the 2018 Cambrian Events

Ancient Welsh legend tells of the time when strange beasts walked the earth and “Y-Ddraig Goch” (the “Red Dragon”) lived high in the Cambrian Mountains. It was a peaceful beast and respected by the people. The Kingdom of Wales was peaceful and prosperous, and when King Ludd inherited the throne he shared his kingdom with this majestic and mystical beast. He protected the land and peoples from the Coranaid invasion, in the great battle with terrifying White Dragon, and the wicked Magician’s efforts to plunder the kingdom; and now rests in the lonely deep dark forest of Radnor protected by the Four Churches (Llanfihangel Cefnllys, Llanfihangel Rhydithon, Llanfihangel Nant Melan, and Llanfihangel Cascob) dedicated to St Michael. If the Churches are ever destroyed he will rise again to battle and protect the land and it’s peoples...

The “Cambrian Dragons Trail” is dedicated to “Y-Ddraig Goch” and his travels across the Cambrian Mountains to ensure peace and prosperity of the land. The challenging 60km (37mile) route is from “Sea to Summit” across the scenic and tranquil Cambrian Mountains.

The route starts at the seashore on picturesque Clarach Bay on the west coast just north of Aberystwyth; and heads east on a mixture of tracks, trails and minor roads; following a course through scenic valleys, over breath-taking Mountain tops on a course that sees some of the most spectacular views in the Cambrian Mountains; and finishes in the quaint historic market town of Llanidloes.

A stunning route that is well worthy of its name “the Cambrian Dragons Trail” to commemorate the mystical and majestic “Y-Ddraig Goch” the protector of this scenic and tranquil land. The event is open to Walkers, Hikers, Runners, Tabbers or Crawlers, but must be completed in 13hrs.
