Ultra-Trail Snowdonia by UTMB®

RAW Adventures are delighted to be working with Ultra-Trail Snowdonia by UTMB to enhance your Eryri running experience. RAW Adventures are providing the Official UTS Recce Days for all four race distances at UTS; the UK’s only UTMB World Series event.

By attending an Official UTS Recce Day you will increase your confidence and skills in moving efficiently through the most technical and challenging sections of each race route. Official UTS Recce Days are not just ‘training runs’; you will spend time working with experienced RAW Run Guides to increase your current knowledge and skills, as well as discovering the best of mountain running in Eryri.

ERYRI 25K (distance 25km/1300m +)

UTS 50K (distance 55km/3300m +)

UTS 100K (distance 103km/6400m +)

UTS 100M (distance 168km/9500m +)

All Official UTS Recce Days cover key sections of each race route – the routes have been chosen with a focus on technical ascents and descents, remote terrain where navigation can be challenging and areas of the route that will likely be undertaken in the dark. From experience, these are areas where runners can lose pace and time. By covering these sections on a recce it will help to build strength and resilience over exciting and challenging terrain and give you extra confidence on race day. Through focusing on a range of ‘mountain skills’ and race strategies, Official UTS Recce Days by RAW Adventures can help increase your enjoyment and chances of completion.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for today's recce. I’m totally newbie in terms of mountain running, being older and slower, I knew it was going to be a challenge. I felt 100% looked after in what was very tough conditions, I thought the changes you made to the route worked brilliantly. You were totally amazing, kind, supportive and gave me so much confidence. What an awesome company and people you have!
