The 3 routes are all equally tough, and all offer some very special views. The shorter routes see you spending most of your time running on mountainous terrain, with technical twisting and turning rocky descents. But make sure you take some time to soak up the views and revel in what you have achieved, these routes are a real test of your mental and physical ability.
If you decide to tackle the marathon route, you will summit Mt Snowdon at around 980m in elevation - your legs will soon let you know that you have made a serious ascent!
Once at the summit you will drop off the side of Snowdonia and down the Bwlch Main trail. This has some cracking rocky sections so be prepared for some scrambling. This route will take you down through a valley and join up at the bottom of the Watkins path. From here the route takes you along the stunning Llyn Dinas Lake until you reach another tough climb at the old copper mine, before entering Beddgelert village. The route from here enters some superb alpine forest with sublime views of Snowdon.
Once you leave the forest you find yourself on a short road section before climbing the Snowdon ranger path. This is a steep switchback section that takes you to a cracking descent back to Llanberis, where you will be welcomed across the finish line.
