Trailmarathon die deeluitmaakt van de etappeloop de Severn Challenge, het is de eerste etappe. De trailmarathon kan los gelopen worden. Vanaf de start voert de route naar de bron van de Severn, een pittige beklimming. Van de bron loopt de route terug naar de startplek en verder door het dal van de Severn. Reken op de nodige hoogtemeters. Een leuke trailmarathon. De afsluitende etappe van de Severn Challenge op 2 juni is ook een trailmarathon.
This is one of the shorter sections of the Severn Challenge. In order to get to the source of the Severn, the race start takes competitors through a near four mile mountain trek, up the Plynlimon which has been described as the most dangerous mountain in Wales; due mainly to the splattered and concealed bogs, so best progress will be made in keeping to the designated routes! A Race Marshall will be in waiting at the source to ensure that everybody has arrived safely and competitors can then commence their journey on Britainís longest river path. Hopefully nobody will have pulled out before this point! Good news Ė the altitude drop from the source at this stage is a remarkable 1,600ft! The route takes you through some inspiring scenery unchanged by many a year.
