Full final details to follow

When Wednesday 29th December 2021


Cosmeston Country Park, Vale of Glamorgan

Exact registration location TBC but will be signed from the main car park

Accessible by public transport. There is a bus stop just outside the entrance. Plenty of bike stands and the traffic free cycle path from Penarth/Cardiff Bay ends at the park.

Pay and Display parking for cars

Terrain & How Far?

This is a well used park surrounding the two lakes with patches of woodland and meadow. There are lots of tracks some of which will be muddy.

The event format is a ‘score’ course. You will be given a map with all checkpoints marked. You have an hour to visit as many as possible before returning to the start/finish. Each is worth a different point value, the winner is the person who scores the highest number of points – often not the fastest runner.

Entries (not yet open)

You must pre-enter. Entries will be open until Tuesday 28th December (TBC) or when full.

This is a “Winter of Wellbeing” event, entry is free of charge for competitors under the age of 25 thanks to funding secured through the Outdoor Partnership. Juniors under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult but there is no need to complete a separate adult entry.
