Terrain & How Far?

Bryngarw Country Park has a large network of paths and tracks surrounding the House and gardens. Most of the paths are well surfaced and buggy friendly however there are some hills.

This event is perfect for children of all ages to enjoy a ‘treasure hunt’ in the Park, you can take part as a group and be as competitive as you wish. The event format is a one hour challenge. 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. There will be a recommended loop for beginners of approximately 2km.
