The Tinsel Run

A festive themed fun-run or walk in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains.

The Tinsel Run event happened on the 17th December 2022 and is now finished. If you are looking to Take on a Challenge, visit our calendar of events here.

Take part in running or walking this festive fun run around the hills surrounding Llanidloes and #FundTheFight.

The circa 10k route over and around the hills that surround the historic market town of Llanidloes is open to all ages and abilities from budding trekkers to the ardent 10k’ers.

The route can prove challenging to the experienced 10K’er attempting to set the best time on the course, or a scenic hike for the rambler out there looking for a pre-Christmas trek, or simply an all-out fun session for those who wish to join-in and revel in the festive spirit in fancy-dress which the organisers encourage across the board – but don’t forget your Brain Tumour Research tops!

The scenic route will take you on a combination of Track, Trail and Minor Roads; with some wet / boggy terrain thrown-in to contend with; and will be supported along the way with intermittent manned Check Points at circa 2.5km intervals. Please note that the route is NOT hand-railed, which requires a level of common sense and the participant’s ability to navigate across such a course.

In the afternoon you can relax and enjoy the hustle, bustle and festive atmosphere of the pre-Christmas Market; or enjoy the fantastic pre-Christmas hospitality of the local Inns and Restaurants, to make your visit to the heart of the Cambrian Mountains a memorable experience.
