Cader Idris Mountain Race

Ras y Gader, the Cader Idris mountain race, one of the toughest fell races in Wales, and viewed by many as a classic "must do" race. The event starts and finishes in the market town of Dolgellau, at sea level, and climbs almost 3000ft to the summit of Pen y Gader itself. One of the real challenges of the race is the constantly changing terrain, switching from steep metalled roads to flat tracks behind Gwernan lake, pitched steps up the Pony Path, and picking your way among the boulder fields on the final ascent........and then you've got to do it all in reverse!

Molly's Blog

Welcome to my blog - To all you explorers!  I first found out about the Chamwell Centre Charity as I was looking for hydrotherapy facilities in the area. After more research I really admire what they offer to young children and adults with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Adventure Race South Africa

Many of you who visit the Chamwell Centre will know of (the always cheerful) Julie de Leeuw. Not only is she Chamwell’s Operations Manager, she’s also our in-house ‘pocket rocket’. When most of us are thinking of how we can spend our days away from work relaxing at home or with friends and family, Julie is planning her training schedule. You remember that day last week when it reached 2 degrees Celsius? Well, Julie had her day off and was out kayaking. “Sorry!”, she typed in her text – “my fingers are freezing, I can’t type properly I’m so cold after 40 miles of kayaking”. You see, Julie and her husband Anton are Adventure Racers.

Never heard of table cricket? No, we hadn’t either, but then Jeanette Tate - Disability Development Officer for Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation came to see us and suggested we run some taster sessions at Chamwell. Well, we couldn’t have been happier.
