Discover the Snowdonia Slate Trail over 3 x days, with RAW Adventures. This adventure is designed for keen trail runners who enjoy visiting new places on a multi-day journey.

Kate and Ross enjoyed walking this wonderful route in April 2018 and we're keen to revisit the journey. Kate wrote an article on their experience in Trail maagazine, sharing some great photos and their laughs along the way.

This 83-mile trail takes you on a journey back in time, to when Snowdonia was at the centre of the world’s slate industry. Split into 13 logical route sections, we aim to achieve this magnificent route in 3 guided 'luxe' running days. Walkers may choose to complete the journey in 4-8 days, which we are also more than happy to accommodate – we are flexible in our approach and love walking or running, dependent on who we’re with.

But, for our 3 Day Guided 'Luxe' Running event, we’re looking at moving through the terrain at a consistent pace, but not forgetting to take in our surroundings and appreciate where we are. This is quiet, magical Snowdonia…with atmosphere, history and personality oozing from every stone wall, steam, quarry enclosure and village café. You will meet so much of this charismatic area in your 3 days that we’ll forgive you for being overwhelmed...which is why we make time each evening to reflect upon and enjoy where we’ve been, discuss our surroundings and really appreciate how this unique National Park ticks...

For runners who enjoy long running days out in mixed terrain – on and off path, these 3 guided days will introduce to another world, but with comfortable accommodation and time for refuelling and socialising each evening. Come back down to earth with a bump each night...and return home full of more love for the majesty of Eryri. This is the spell of the Snowdonia Slate Trail. Run well, eat well, sleep well.

We journey the trail in a clockwise direction to allow for building distance and ascent over the 3 days, with logical overnight stops en route. We cover the distance as follows:

Day 1 - 25.6 miles/996m ascent
Day 2 - 24.2 miles/1720m ascent
Day 3 - 33.5 miles/1635m ascent

We will stay overnight at Plas Coch in Llanberis, Ty Gwyn Hotel in Betws y Coed and Plas Colwyn Self Catering in Beddgelert: three different locations and accommodations to experience.
