Nant y Arian 2018


Date of event: Sun 28th Jan 2018
Level of event: Regional (C)
Nearest town: Ponterwyd


Full Splits

All the Courses will start and finish within the forest.  Nant yr Arian is a long established orienteering area and the clear felling that has taken place over the years, means that there are many open patches within the forest.  These help to give even better views, with many opportunities to view Plymlimon, as well as the Irish Sea. The event extends into an open area known as Esgair Gorlan, adjacent to the eastern side of the forest.

As well as the attraction of the event, this is a fantastic location - with Forest Visitor Centre, Walks with stunning views, Café, Toilets and Red Kite feeding at 2.0pm.


Most of the running on shorter courses will be on paths, and this area is very suitable for beginners. However, there will still be plenty of challenge on the longer courses, for the more experienced Orienteers.
