Bryn Bras 2017

Date of event: Sun 02nd Apr 2017
Level of event: Local (D)

This is open, grazed, common land, combining a rather excellent runnability on a plateau of bog and crag, with some dramatic drops to the Rheidol river on the east, the deeply carved gorges of which are traversed by the poetically named Parson’s Bridge. There is a useful system of paths for the orange and yellow courses, and the views ( the sun always shines here) are stupendous.
