Brwydr y Graean

Date: Sat 06 Jul, 2024

Venue: Ruthin, Wales

Brwydr y Graean is a new event by the team who is running the Glorious Gravel, a series of gravel adventures and cyclosportives in Britain and abroad. Brwydr y Graean means battle on the gravel in Welsh language.

Starting from the town of Ruthin, the first 7km (4.5 miles) are on paved roads going towards the small village of Bontuchel where the race goes left into a smaller climb for the first real challenge of the day before entering the first gravel where the race reaches a local lap of 60km which needs to be done 1.5 time before entering the finish section around the Brenig Reservoir”.  68% of the full course is on gravel, 32% on paved roads.  The road sections are mainly situated in the start and middle of the course.

The 47km shorter course is a copy of the first 40km of the 106km course but has a direct finish and turns right at the Brenig Reservoir to finish directly.
