About the Eryri (Snowdonia) Mighty Hike

“2 years ago, I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs. 1 year ago, I was just out of hospital following major surgery. Yesterday I walked a marathon.” Ashley, 2023 Mighty Hiker

Whether you’re new to long-distance walking or a regular rambler, we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other, knowing every pound you raise will make a Mighty difference to people with cancer.

    Please note that the routes can be subject to change following health and safety inspections. Any key changes will be communicated on the day.

  • What time does it start and finish?

    Hikers will set off in waves 20 minutes apart, from 6.50am for the full marathon and 8.30am for the half marathon. 

    You will book your start wave when you register. These are given on a first-come, first-served basis and we advise hikers with a slow pace to book the earliest start wave available to give plenty of time to complete the route.

    For the full marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 7.5 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 12.5 hours.

    For the half marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 4 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 6 hours.

    If your plans change, don’t worry, you can amend your start wave using our Manage My Booking page.

  • How do I get there?

    Parking for the full marathon and half marathon is at the start line in Faenol Estate Car Park, Bangor, LL57 4BP. Please note this is a 10 minute walk from the start site.

    Free shuttle buses will run from both finish lines back to the car park in the afternoon.

  • When does registration close?

    Registration for the full and half marathon closes at midnight on the Friday 17 May, one week before the hike, or earlier if it sells out. 

    So, sign up today to avoid missing out!
