Skyline Challenge 9 mile

Walk the Port 2016

The Skyline Challenge 9 mile route 

  • Early bird entry fee £4, closing date for entries 22 July 2017
  • Standard entry fee £5, closing date for entries 26 August 2017
  • Start time: registration from 9am, all walkers to leave by 9.30 am

Entrants must be over 12 years old and if under the age of 18 must be fit enough to complete the long walks and accompanied by a responsible named adult who is competent in map reading and navigation.

The self-led 9 mile route will take you through spectacular views encircling Bettws in varied countryside.

Enjoy gently rolling farmland with dales and round tops affording wide views of the large adjacent Mynydd Maen and Twmbarlwm ridges and a panoramic view as far as the Bristol Channel and Wentwood.

The going is mainly good, but soft in places. Although moderate, the walk will rarely be on the flat!

Be prepared with a packed lunch and at least a litre of water, more if it is hot and humid.
