Latest News From The Conwy Ascent

The latest forecast (Wed 22nd) is looking good for the Conwy ascent with a light S wind, 16 degrees and dry. As long as the wind stays light it should be reasonably flat. We are expecting a lot of rain in the hills on Wed and Thurs but this should have all got down the river by race day.

If you need to shuttle cars to the finish, be aware that a lot of the route is now 20mph so allow extra time. It feels like walking pace through the villages on the B road up the valley so don't get caught out.

If anyone is paying entry fees into the Conwy ascent bank account, the account has changed from previous years. The new account no. is on the 'how to enter' page.

Please note from the 'Conditions and safety' page that we have set cut off times at Tal y Cafn bridge to avoid getting the safety cover too spread out.

Please also note that any SUPs doing the tour need to start near the start of the tour start window and definitely before the SUP race start.
