Paying homage to the traditional motor rally scene that has been echoing around the mountains and forests of Snowdonia for over 80 years, The Gravel Rally pits you against 6 distinct stages along a course that has to be tackled within a single day.

Each stage will require a different racing ability, from vein-popping road climbing to technical forestry riding, gravel sprints and fast rolling descents, The Gravel Rally will reward the all-rounder who pushes their boundaries the furthest

What is the Gravel Rally

The Gravel Rally is an all-new one day micro-adventure taking place in Snowdonia, North Wales on June 5th 2022. Starting and finishing at the Adventure Parc Snowdonia there will be something for the whole family as well as great entertainment and fantastic facilities available to those who book in advance.

The 80 mile course climbs approximately 10,250ft over mountainous terrain, through historic forests, around breath-taking reservoirs and along challenging gravel paths.

There are 6 timed sectors, all distinct and varied that will test all of the abilities of those brave enough to face the rally head on. Transition stages will allow for time to be taken to enjoy the beauty of Snowdonia and refuel for the ride ahead. Rallying will not be permitted in these areas.

The course must be completed within the day and all local rules and highway codes must be obeyed at all times. Please see our FAQ’s for more information
