Saturday, 6th May 2017 - The 13th Bala Challenge!

Note that fund raising is optional - so why not use the event to support your own fund raising?

Choose from:

A range of walks around or along Lake Bala, through forests, over moorland with wonderful views and opportunity to see wildlife. Free car parking, feeding stations, transport if required, refreshments at the finish and a certificate!

You can raise money for your own charity, good cause, or club, or just enjoy the walk. For approved charities or good causes with a minimum entry of 10 walkers, a donation will be made to the charity returning a significant part of the entry fee. Please apply before the event. Runners may participate but start later, the event is not a race (LDWA guidelines).

Important: the route is over farmland - dogs must be on a lead. Please be courteous to landowners and farmers.
Again we will be supporting charities and good causes, such as: North Wales Air Ambulance, the Mountain Rescue Service, RNLI and local good causes.
