A non-political, non-profit, self-funded, independent organisation run by local volunteers to promote Llanidloes, the Cambrian Mountains and the surrounding areas in mid Wales.
We are a group of mountaineers, hill-walkers, and those with passion for exploring the great outdoors. We also have experience and common interest in hosting trekking and high endurance mountain events, and formed "Cambrian Mountain Events" to deliver a series of fully supported superbly organised Events to like-minded people.
The primary objective of Cambrian Mountain Events is to promote the lesser known Cambrian Mountains, local areas, local communities and local business; whilst also using it as a platform to raise awareness and promote a group of hardworking, no-nonsense, and worthy charities we support.
Please feel free to browse the Events below. The links will direct you to the respective event page and registration.
Our motto is to “Challenge Boundaries” where our endurance events will test your physical and mental resolve by pushing you to your limits; test your perceived boundaries beyond your wildest expectations; but will still give you the opportunity to experience the tranquil beauty of wilds in the Cambrian Mountain, with the confidence that you are fully supported by an experienced team from start to finish. Have you got want it takes? ….. do you dare?
We also support and assist in the organisation of a series of local community events, which are also listed in the event section below. We strive to offer something for everybody of all ages and abilities.
We welcome and encourage entrants to use the events to raise awareness and funds for established charities they support, where we will help spread the word and promote their efforts in our event marking and promotional activities.
As a group we raise awareness and support the Gurkha Welfare Trust, Veterans 4 Wildlife, and local Rotary International Clubs fundraising campaigns; in supporting these hardworking no-nonsense charitable organisations, which entrants are welcomed and encouraged to help support and promote as well.
Please visit our Facebook Page which is regularly updated with information pertaining to the events, and used by the administration team as a forum for discussions associated with the events.
