The tough, circular route starts and ends in what was formerly the Victorian square section of Slate Mountain, home to a pub, pizzeria and grill (perfect for warming up post race), as well as the hub for Zip World's on site activities. After leaving the start line, it's time to head up into the mountains! Joining a gravel access road to the quarry, you'll join the rally stage used in 2018's Wales Rally GB, taking in stunning views of Blaenau Ffestiniog and Trawsfynydd.
Rejoining the main quarry road, you'll follow this on your 1,200 foot ascent to Maenofferen Mill - this section is also timed, as part of the 'King of the Hill' section of the route. Fastest up wins a special trophy!
Once you reach Maenofferen, it's downhill all the way - past Zip World Titan and some of the spectacular working quarry sites and back down to the finish line.
Along your way, you'll ascend nearly 1,200 feet above sea level before descending for the finish line past Zip World Titan.
